29 unanswered points from Oakland have put the Bills in a deep hole, 38-24, with eight minutes remaining. Bills' offense has been utterly ineffective on past four possessions, and tired defense has appeared limp against Raiders' hot offense.

It's halftime at the Women's College Cup in San Jose. USC leads WVU 1-0. The Trojans stellar goalkeeper Sammy Prudhomme snags 4 saves to keep a clean sheet. The Mountaineers had 5 corner kicks, but couldn't find a way to put one in the back of the net.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Mike Gillislee, who has vultured two touchdowns from LeSean McCoy today en route to matching a career high with 16 fantasy points, was started in 1.05 percent of ESPN leagues. Gillislee has four of the Bills' five rushing attempts within five yards of the Raiders' goal line. Jerome Felton had the fifth.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

With 8 catches today against Washington, Cardinals wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald has moved into third place on the NFL's all-time receptions list. He passed Cris Carter and Marvin Harrison, and now sits behind No. 1 Jerry Rice and No. 2 Tony Gonzalez.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

Make it two sacks for Olivier Vernon today. Now has 8.0 this season and seven in past five games. He's earning that money.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

There's that smooth route running ability from Raiders WR Amari Cooper. The slant and go. Double-move. Cooper set up the CB to take the bait on the TD pass from Derek Carr. Raiders now up 30-24 over the Bills in the fourth quarter.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

Cardinals RB David Johnson having a balanced game so far. He has 54 rushing yards and 64 receiving yards to put him over 100 yards from scrimmage for the 12th straight time this season – he's done it in every game. Only one other player in NFL history has had 100 or more yards in their first 12 games of the season: Edgerrin James in both 2000 and 2005.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

Pivot route on the Michael Floyd TD...Looks like a pick concept from a defensive perspective with Floyd releasing outside. And that puts the DB in an outside leverage position. Cardinals take a 17-13 lead on the Redskins.

Adam Rubin ESPN Staff Writer 

Davey Johnson was passed over for Hall of Fame selection. He received fewer than five votes among the 16 voters and needed 75 percent. John Schuerholtz (16 votes) and Bud Selig (15) were selected.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants used a lot of window dressing on the screen pass to Rashad Jennings for the score. Boot action plus the reverse look. That puts some stress on defensive eye discipline. Giants cut the Steelers lead to 14-7 in the third quarter.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Momentum has shifted here in the Black Hole, the Raiders answering the Bills' two third-quarter TDs with two of their own, The question, as has been all season, is this - can Oakland's defense stay stout as Buffalo leads 24-23 with 57 seconds to go in the third quarter.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

Michael Crabtree played with fire on his post-TD celebration. Twice before this season Crabtree was flagged for taunting when refs thought he was doing a throat slash, rather than a Kenny Powers-inspired finger sniff celebration. So had Crabtree been interpreted as doing another throat slash, he would have been ejected from the game with his second personal foul, having been flagged earlier for taunting.

Dan Graziano ESPN Staff Writer 

Odell Beckham had one catch on one target in the first half. Has been targeted on six of the first nine plays of the second half. Four catches on this drive, which just came up short on fourth down at the goal line.

It's cold but otherwise the weather turned nice for today's game between the Panthers and Seahawks.

Wow! USC's Morgan Andrews with the very early goal in the Women's College Cup. The Trojans lead WVU 1-0 less than 2 minutes into the National Championship.

West Virginia and USC on the field for the women's soccer national championship game. Last three NCAA finals have ended 1-0, and these are two of the nation's stingiest defenses.

Tristan H. Cockcroft ESPN Senior Writer 

Drew Brees' seven fantasy points were his fewest in a home game since he also had seven in 2010 Week 17, and they snapped a streak of 11 consecutive home games in which he scored 20-plus.

Josh Weinfuss ESPN Staff Writer 

The Cardinals offense started with a roar for the second straight week, scoring on its opening drive, but then quieted down for the rest of the first half, which ended with Arizona up on Washington 10-6. The Cardinals' defense stymied two Washington drives, including one from the 1-yard-line. RB David Johnson and WR Larry Fitzgerald have been the focal point of the Cardinals' offense again, which needs to score another touchdown or two to put some pressure on Washington.

Jenna Laine ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bucs had a chance to put points on the board just before the half, but kicker Roberto Aguayo's 31-yard kick sailed wide, wide right. Two plays prior, Jameis Winston was brought down by Joey Bosa for a 12-yard loss. Chargers lead 14-7 at halftime. The Bucs have looked out-of-sync on both sides of the ball today.

Matt Bowen ESPN Staff Writer 

The Bills used the zone-read with a kick-out or wrap block on Tyrod Taylor's TD run. And that was after Buffalo created an explosive play on the counter run to LeSean McCoy. Bills jump to a 17-9 lead over the Raiders in the third quarter.

Paul Gutierrez ESPN Staff Writer 

So that's how the Bills do it on the ground, going 66 yards on two runs, by Shady McCoy and Tyrod Taylor, to open the second half. The Raiders are back on their heels and the offense, which found a rhythm late in the second quarter, will look for an answer, trailing 17-9.

Jordan Raanan ESPN Staff Writer 

The Giants came into this game concerned about Steelers hitting big plays, which is their specialty. Pittsburgh has responded by killing them underneath. Steelers TEs and RBs have 10 catches, 133 yards as they lead 14-0 at halftime.
