Raiders vs. Falcons score: Ryan continues to struggle, Raiders lead at the half

The Atlanta Falcons are in a tight contest with the Oakland Raiders as turnovers continue to plague their offense, leading to a 13-7 Raiders lead at halftime.

The Raiders may only be 1-3, but they showed in their win over the Pittsburgh Steelers that they have the capability of playing with the big boys, and they're showing it against the Falcons with three first-half interceptions of Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan.

Ryan's third interception turned into a Raiders touchdown as the Raiders' Denarius Moore broke free of a missed tackle by Falcons linebacker MIke Peterson to scamper into the end zone on a 25-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Carson Palmer.

The Falcons' touchdown came on a 4-yard touchdown pass to Roddy White during a drive that looked llke Ryan had shaken off his earlier struggles. The Falcons defense then responded with a goal-line stand, preventing the Raiders from scoring a touchdown from the four-yard line.

But the Raiders keep coming back behind a defensive backfield that is taking advantage of Ryan's mistakes.
