NFL London, Oakland Raiders vs Chicago Bears: live score and latest updates from Tottenham Stadium




 
7:08PM

Second quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 14

Despite some improved Chicago defense, Oakland nevertheless manage to get within field goal range.

7:05PM

Second quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 14

Another disappointing drive from Chicago. Mayowa sacks Daniel for eight yards lost and the Bears are soon punting the football away.

6:51PM

Second quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 14

Washington with a couple of yards to take it to the five. Now that penalty for holding I just mentioned.

It's first and goal at the Chicago three...

and DeAndre Washington runs it in for the second TD! Extra point scores and it's Bears 0 Raiders 14

Some concern for Raiders fans as Josh Jacobs seems to have hurt an arm/elbow... seems to be okay...

6:48PM

Second quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 7

Nice bit of colour on Sky Sports, where they're pointing out that Raiders are in the middle of an epic road trip: 48 games between games at Oakland, which is said to account for a good team spirit, band of bros etc.

Starting with great field position, the Raiders inc forward towards the end zone... and a penalty for holding against the defense only serves to help their cause.

6:42PM

What have these Bears got on offense?

is the question.

And "not much" is the answer! Seemingly under limited pressure, the QB Chase Daniel has just served up a gentle little pass down the centre, there was no Chicago man within five yards! Easiest interception he'll ever make for Nicholas Morrow.

6:40PM

TOUCHDOWN Raiders!

Excellent slalom run from Josh Jacobs, electric there from 12 yards for the touchdown. The extra point is good and the Raiders start the second quarter in dream fashion, capping off a 90-yard scoring drive to move Bears 0 Raiders 7

6:35PM

End of first quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 0

The Raiders continue to drive forward, and this has been an impressive start from then.

6:34PM

First Quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 0

But Clinton-Dix with an excellent tackle here to halt a dangerous move down the right. Still a first down though....

6:33PM

NOT SO FUNNY NOW

HaHa Clinton-Dix has missed a tackle and the left end Josh Jacobs with a great jinking, spinning run for 21 yards.

6:28PM

First Quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 0

The Raiders have the ball and a fresh set of downs on their own ten yard line.

6:27PM

First Quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 0

Big defensive play! Daniel sacked for a five yard loss by Maxx Crosby, who was swarming around the QB and eventually hauled him down. Factor in a five yard penalty and a ten yard penalty for a falst start and offensive holding and this all amounts to

a) not the greatest start for the Bears offense

b) them having to punt the ball away.

6:20PM

So no score for the Raiders

on what was shaping up as a promising drive.

What can the Bears offense bring?

6:17PM

First Quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 0

Solid defense keeps the Raiders quiet for a couple of plays and it's 4th down... albeit with a flag on the play. Offense the guilty parties! The verdict? "Unnecessary roughness from Richie Incognito."

What a brilliant sporting language it is. Alas for the Raiders, that puts them out of reasonable field goal range and they punt.

6:12PM

10:31 gone and we have a timeout

Akiem Hicks, the Chicago defensive end, has gone down hurt.

It's 2nd and 10 at the Bears 28 yard line. Eight plays so far in the drive.

Ooof. They're just showing why Hicks is off. Horrid elbow injury for the lad, popped out of its socket. Boak.

6:07PM

First Quarter: Bears 0 Raiders 0

Raiders offense off and running at the first time of asking as they pick up four yards with a short pass, but the run game is a yard short on the next play. Third and one on their own 29 yard line for the Raiders. A couple of short, successful run plays move the chains forward before the first pass of note of the evening: 21 yards down the middle for the wide receiver Trevor Davis. Nicely done by Derek Carr.

6:06PM

Ready to go!

Having won the toss, the Bears kick off, and it is a touchback.

6:02PM

Stars, stripes, soldiers, singing

5:58PM

Oakland Offense

will get first go.

5:57PM

Teams are coming out on the pitch

Harry's an NFL fan, isn't he? He was on telly at the Super Bowl last time out.

5:22PM

A new era

of NFL quarterbacks? It might just be...

5:10PM

Good afternoon!

Some excellent NFL action ahoy, and all the more interesting for us here in the UK because it takes place on these shores. The game this evening takes place in Tottenham's stadium, and the first bit of interest is the time lapse thing that Sky are doing about how they transform the arena from soccer to football-ready playing area.

This is the first of four games in London this season, and it's an enticing one to start: the Raiders against the Bears. Raiders are in the AFC West and have two wins and two defeats on their record so far. The Bears, who play in NFC North, have won three of their four so far.

And those Bears are among the eye-catchers in NFL Power Rankings: Lions, Bills and 49ers surprise early-season risers through week four, by our NFL guru Alex Finnis.

And here's Alex on the Chicago team's opponent this evening.
