Bears vs. Raiders: Final score and highlights for Week 5 in London
After a disastrous first half, the Bears rallied to take the lead before losing 24-21 to the Raiders at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
The Bears fell short in a wild 24-21 loss to the Raiders at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Sunday afternoon.
The team almost had its biggest comeback in five years but gave up a late touchdown to Josh Jacobs and couldn’t respond inside the final two minutes as Chase Daniel threw his second interception.
The way the Bears turned things around in the second half was remarkable. They looked lifeless on both sides of the ball for much of the game until a botched pitch from Derek Carr to Josh Jacobs turned into a wild fumble recovered by Khalil Mack.
However, the defense couldn’t control the line of scrimmage against a physical Raiders offensive line, and Jacobs went off for a big day including 114 rushing yards and two scores. The offense had its moments but couldn’t be relied on.
The trip to London was certainly interesting for both teams, but the Bears won’t be happy to fall to 3-2. Relive their Week 5 defeat below.
Final score: Raiders 24, Bears 21
Raiders 24, Bears 21: The Bears force a punt but Tarik Cohen can’t deliver a big return. With no timeouts and 13 seconds left, it’s looking dire as the offense takes the field.
Raiders 24, Bears 21: An apparent miscommunication leads to Chase Daniel wildly overthrowing the ball right to the Raiders for his second interception of the game. That’ll likely do it from London.
Raiders 24, Bears 21: The offense has picked its way past midfield without eating much clock but it’s still outside field goal position.
Raiders 24, Bears 21: Josh Jacobs goes flying into the end zone for the go-ahead touchdown on the first play after the two-minute warning. If there’s any good news for the Bears, it’s that they still have 1:57 for the offense to get down the field.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: Derek Carr has made big pass after big pass on this drive and now the Raiders are inside the Bears’ 5 at the two-minute warning. They need to get into the end zone to go ahead.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: The Raiders throw off the Bears’ defense with a shallow cross to Foster Moreau that goes for 23 yards. They’re at the Bears’ 37 with less than four minutes on the clock.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: A wild sequence on special teams there. The Raiders convert a first down on a fake punt after referees overturn a call of a fumble on the field. The runner’s elbow had already been down, so now Oakland is back on the move after a big call by Jon Gruden.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: The Bears can’t add to their lead but their nine-play, 57-yard drive ate up over six minutes on the clock, then the punting unit delivered with a great play to pin the Raiders inside their own 5-yard line.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: Chase Daniel throws an errant pass in the face of pressure that’s picked off by Daryl Worley, but it’s wiped away by a roughing the passer penalty on Maurice Hurst. That’s another big call going the Bears’ way as they push their way toward midfield.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: Jon Gruden looks absolutely furious while challenging an incredible catch down the right sideline by Allen Robinson. The Bears had third-and-7 at their own 4-yard line and looked in trouble on the series until Chase Daniel’s shot to Robinson somehow worked.
Gruden launched his red flag onto the field for the challenge, also getting red in the face as he fumed, but referees upheld the call on the field as Robinson managed to drag both his field while being slammed out of bounds.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: TAKEAWAY! In a remarkable twist Trevor Davis, not long after his big kick return, fumbles moments before he’s about to cross the goal line for a go-ahead score. Sherrick McManis popped his hand in to punch the ball out Peanut Tillman-style around the 2-yard line and the Bears were able to hop on it.
Third quarter: Bears 21, Raiders 17
Bears 21, Raiders 17: Trevor Davis hits the Bears the other way with a 51-yard kick return as the Raiders suddenly have the ball on the cusp of field goal territory. The defense will need to be stout here to maintain the team’s fresh lead.
Bears 21, Raiders 17: TOUCHDOWN! Allen Robinson goes up and comes down with the ball for his second score of the third quarter.
However, Anthony Miller got called for taunting after the play, which the Raiders elected to tack onto the kickoff, potentially giving them strong field position. The Bears are fired up but that’s a bad penalty.
Raiders 17, Bears 14: There goes Tarik Cohen! The speedster found some big space on a punt return and took it 71 yards to give the Bears the ball inside the red zone. That’s the kind of big special teams play that had eluded the team in the first four games but it comes at a crucial time.
Raiders 17, Bears 14: The Raiders were on the move until an offensive holding penalty sent them backwards and forced a punt. It looks like the Bears’ pass rush is finally starting to break through against the Oakland offensive line.
Raiders 17, Bears 14: Eddy Piñeiro hits the extra point but he hunched over in pain afterwards and went to the medical tent. Thankfully for the Bears, this happened not long afterward:
Raiders 17, Bears 13: TOUCHDOWN! Chase Daniel rolls out of the pocket and slings a low pass to Allen Robinson in the end zone for a touchdown. It also looks like Javon Wims was shaken up on the play. That was a 12-play, 89-yard drive.
Raiders 17, Bears 7: What a catch by Anthony Miller! Chase Daniel goes deep down the right sideline to the second-year receiver, who leaps over Lamarcus Joyner to haul in a 32-yard gain.
Raiders 17, Bears 7: The Bears keep running into third-and-long situations but Chase Daniel finds Trey Burton for their second conversion of the game, then the QB hits J.P. Holtz with a nice little screen play to get them pass midfield. It looks like the offense might finally be finding some rhythm.
Raiders 17, Bears 7: Deon Bush comes through with a huge third-down tackle at the feet of Darren Waller to keep the tight end short of the first-down marker. However, the Bears won’t get that short field again after a good punt by the Raiders puts the offense at about the opposing 10-yard line.
Raiders 17, Bears 7: TOUCHDOWN! David Montgomery gets the ball twice and plunges into the end zone on the second carry for a big score. While the offense has been ugly all game, it’s able to capitalize on a bad error by the Raiders to make this interesting.
Raiders 17, Bears 0: Allen Robinson draws an obvious pass interference penalty on Lamarcus Joyner, giving the Bears first-and-goal at the Raiders’ 5.
Raiders 17, Bears 0: TAKEAWAY! A bad pitch between Derek Carr and Josh Jacobs leads to a fumble and Khalil Mack ends up on it for a huge play. The Bears are inside the Raiders’ 15 with a chance to strike.
Raiders 17, Bears 0: Anthony Miller drops a pass on third down that forces the Bears to punt on their first drive of the second half. They have 44 total yards so far.
Halftime: Raiders 17, Bears 0
Raiders 17, Bears 0: After getting the ball back, the Raiders take a knee to enter halftime. They’re unsurprisingly satisfied with how that went.
Raiders 17, Bears 0: Maurice Hurst sacks Chase Daniel on first down for a 15-yard loss. The Bears are getting dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball.
Raiders 17, Bears 0: A good kick return by Cordarelle Patterson puts the Bears in solid field position but let’s be honest, it won’t matter unless the offense can actually start making plays.
Raiders 17, Bears 0: After a chop block penalty on Richie Incognito slowed the Raiders’ latest drive, Daniel Carlson hit a 45-yard field goal to dig the Bears a bit deeper.
Raiders 14, Bears 0: Josh Jacobs returns to the game and converts a third-and-1 to keep the Raiders moving. Oakland now leads 14-2 in first downs, which is as bad as it sounds.
Raiders 14, Bears 0: Raiders running back Josh Jacobs has left the game with an elbow injury. He’s still jogging on the sideline but it’ll be worth monitoring given the impact he’s made so far.
Raiders 14, Bears 0: The Bears’ offense delivers another three-and-out punctuated with a sack on Chase Daniel. This is not going well right now.
Raiders 14, Bears 0: DeAndre Washington gives the Raiders their second rushing touchdown of the game. The Bears’ offense is going to need to make something happen soon because the defense doesn’t look as dominant as usual.
Raiders 7, Bears 0: The Bears’ defense almost gets off the field but Kyle Fuller commits defensive holding on third down to give the Raiders a new set of downs. Penalties are really hurting the Bears today.
Raiders 7, Bears 0: Despite having solid time to throw, Chase Daniel threw a pass right to linebacker Nicholas Morrow for an interception. His first incompletion of the game is a painful one as Oakland starts with the ball in the red zone.
Raiders 7, Bears 0: Josh Jacobs plows into the end zone on the first play of the second quarter to give the Raiders an early lead. That was a very impressive drive by Oakland, and arguably the worst the Bears’ defense has looked yet this year.
First quarter: Bears 0, Raiders 0
Bears 0, Raiders 0: Oakland is into the red zone after a 20-yard pass to Derek Carrier and a pair of good runs by Jalen Richard. Not exactly a strong first quarter from the Bears so far.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: Josh Jacobs has the Raiders moving after a 21-yard run to the left. The first-round pick is up to 40 total yards off seven touches so far.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: No conversion but a good punt by Pat O’Donnell pins the Raiders near the 10-yard line.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: And now the Bears are going in the wrong direction with a penalty and a sack. They’ll need a conversion on third-and-20 to keep moving.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: David Montgomery and Chase Daniel have the Bears’ offense into Raiders’ territory on their first drive. Montgomery made a tough catch on third down to move the chains, then Daniel hit Allen Robinson for 19 yards down the right side.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: A brutal play by the Raiders’ Richie Incognito, who got called for unnecessary roughness on third down to push Oakland out of field goal range. The team had to settle for a punt when it would’ve had a 39-yard field goal attempt without the penalty.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: Trainers are out on the field tending to Akiem Hicks, who returned to action this week after missing Week 4.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: The Raiders are into Bears territory after a 21-yard pass down the middle to Trevor Davis. It looks like Jon Gruden is trying to utilize a quick pace early on to try to throw off the defense.
Bears 0, Raiders 0: The Bears won the coin toss, deferred and kicked off to open the game in London. The Raiders offense will take the field first.
Before the game
Back in England for the first time in eight years, the Bears take on the Raiders at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London on Sunday afternoon. Despite the long trip across the Atlantic for both teams, the game will start at the usual time of 12 p.m. CT and will be broadcast live on FOX.
The first matchup between Chicago and Oakland in four years provides no shortage of storylines.
There’s the ongoing consequences of the Khalil Mack trade, which Matt Nagy enjoys discussing a lot more than Jon Gruden. There’s the Chase Daniel factor as the backup quarterback starts under center in place of injured Mitch Trubisky. There’s also the obvious overseas angle as both teams adjust to long plane rides before facing off in one of the world’s most iconic soccer stadiums.
And going beyond that, there’s also the need for a 3-1 Bears team to keep the pedal down as it tries to keep up in the NFC North. The team rebounded nicely from its Week 1 loss to win three straight, but we’ve yet to see major success on both sides of the ball.
Oakland, coming off a 31-24 win over the Colts last week, will try to keep Daniel in check while finding success against a fierce Bears defense.
Unfortunately for the Raiders, they’re expected to be without top wideout Tyrell Williams, which leaves the team painfully thin at that position. Expect Josh Jacobs, who was selected in the first round with one of the picks the Raiders received in the Mack trade, to play a big role Sunday.
