Halftime: Raiders 38, Broncos 7


Observations and storylines from the Raiders-Broncos game in Denver:

— Last time the Raiders scored 38 points in a game was a 38-17 win over Buffalo Oct. 23, 2005, 80 games ago.

The Raiders haven’t scored 40 points since Dec. 19, 2004, a 40-35 win over Tennessee. That was 86 games ago.

The Raiders haven’t scored 50 points since Sept. 29, 2002, a 52-25 win over Tennessee. That was 131 games ago.

— You know it’s a good day for the Raiders when you trot out punter Shane Lechler for the first time in the game with a 31-0 lead.

— Three touchdowns for Darren McFadden after his 4-yard run to make it 38-0. Guess his hamstring is OK.

— Denver fans chanting for Tim Tebow while down 38-0. If Tebow can reverse this outcome, he’s even better than the hype.

— Samson Satele out with a concussion, with Jared Veldheer going to center and Mario Henderson to left tackle. Zach Miller playing some tackle in an unbalanced line.

    Brown hes shutting out his man and is not getting passed to. Nnamdi doesnt choose who Orton throws to or where he lines up. Lets go for 60 or even 70, they’ll probably end up punting anyways.

  • Seamour!

  • DT42

  • wow…

    coulda been this way from the get-go…

  • 30 year raider

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    This is Raider football! Someone give a game ball to the O-Line and the D-Line….allowed DMAC, Campbell, the receivers, CJ and McClain to do their DOGGONE jobs today!

    Way to catch the ball for Ford, Miller, Miller, Murphy, DMAC, Bush…

    Ah hell…this is Raider FOOTBALL!!!!!

  • aig-raiders

    now this is a game we can build on!!!

  • Ghost to the Post

    I really want Boller in now. We wouldn’t want Campbell to get hurt. Wow, did I just write that?

  • RaiderDebo

    This ight be the begiining of the end for McDaniels. We should let Grads or Boller go in and mop up.

  • DKnight007


    That’s the way to step it up and play as a TEAM coaches and players!

  • DKnight007

    This is definitely a building block game!

  • waklaboo

  • DKnight007

    DMC, OLine, Dline, Mike Mitchell, CJ game balls!

  • DKnight007

    Hue Jackson game ball! LOL

  • aig-raiders

    look at what happens when both lines dominate!

  • priesttj

    I’ve been trying to say that this Oline is getting better and better but no one else sees it. I hope Satele can go vs Seattle and get this line settled and playing better and better.

    All this talent is finally healthy and you see the potential.

  • waklaboo
