The Giants trail Oakland at the half. Use this for your second-half open thread.

The New York Giants are trying exceptionally hard not to win a third straight game. The Giants trail the Oakland Raiders, 17-14 at the half, and have gifted Oakland with all of its points. The homestanding Giants were booed off the MetLife Stadium field.

Two Giants' fumbles deep in their own territory and an Eli Manning pick six accounted for all of Oakland's scoring. The Raiders have only 99 yards of total offense and look completely unable to pass the ball. Terrelle Pryor is 3-of-12 for 27 yards.

The Raiders took a 10-7 lead after one quarter, thanks mostly to the generosity of the Giants.

The Giants quickly spotted the Raiders a 7-0 lead when Jerrel Jernigan fumbled the opening kickoff. Andre Holmes of the Raiders recovered and Oakland went 5 yards in two plays with Terrelle Pryor sneaking from a yard out with 14:07 left in the first quarter.

Damontre Moore got the Giants even with 9:22 left in the first quarter. Moore blocked a Marquette King puntand Cooper Taylor scooped it up and ran 21 yards for the touchdown.

Oakland took a 10-7 lead with 3:21 left in the first quarter on a 33-yard field goal from Sebastian Janikowski. That was set up when Peyton Hillis fumbled a screen pass and Oakland's LaMarr Houston recovered at the Giants' 21-yard line.

The Giants took a 14-10 lead with 7:36 left in the second quarter when Eli Manning hit Rueben Randle for a 5-yard score. The play capped an 11-play, 90-yard drive that consumed 6:22.

Oakland took a 17-14 lead with 1:18 left in the half on a pick 6 by Tracy Porter, who grabbed a Manning pass intended for Victor Cruz and went 43 yards for an easy score.
