The Oakland Raiders and Detroit Lions are set to square off on Saturday night in what will be each team's third NFL preseason game of 2012.
The contest is set to get underway at 7 p.m. ET at Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum. If you don't live in one of the local TV markets, you can watch a live stream online at preseason.nfl.com.
The Raiders are looking to pick up their first win of the preseason. They lost 3-0 to the Cowboys then fell to the Cardinals 31-27.
Oakland's biggest issue is at wide receiver. Denarius Moore has been injured for weeks, while Jacoby Ford could miss a few games with a sprained left foot.
That doesn't leave Carson Palmer, who has already struggled this preseason, with a lot of options. In two games, he has thrown two interceptions and no touchdowns.
Oakland is facing a Detroit team that has its own injury concerns. The Lions are still looking for a starting running back, just two weeks away from Week 1.
Jahvid Best would be the starter if healthy, but can't play because of concussions. Former second-round pick Mikel Leshoure is poised to finally make his NFL debut. After being drafted in 2011, the running back has yet to play in a game because of a ruptured Achilles.
Leshoure will be held out of the first two weeks of the regular season because of a league suspension, but he'll give quarterback Matthew Stafford another option on offense in the final two exhibition contests.
En route to a 1-1 record, the Lions defense has given up just 31 total points in two games. Safety Louis Delmas, defensive end Kyle Vanden Bosch and tackle Sammie Hill will all miss the contest.
Prediction: The Raiders gave up 31 points last week, and won't fair much better with the Lions playing their starters for most of the game. Detroit has been stingy on defense, and Oakland has one of the worst offenses in the AFC. This could get out of hand quickly.
Predicted Score: Detroit 34, Oakland 10
