Halftime: Raiders 38, Broncos 7

Share

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.

    ROCKSTAR! Congrats man! Play the good dad role man, it will buy you many points in the long run! I know!

  • I say rub it in!

  • Guy

    Routt playing very well, no penalties and I don’t think he has given up a pass either. Good week except the Steelers victory. Hope the Pats win this week

  • Just Fire Baby

    We might outrush them 300 to 50 lol.

  • RaiderRockstar

    enjoy the win fellas

  • Bauce 4 Real

    This is what I thought i would see with this team….now can you do it again next week vs first place seattle

    +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

    They need to, or it’s just another temporary one week boost, like most of the rare wins the past 8 years.

    I hope so. Put up or shut up week next week.

  • Bauce 4 Real

    RRRRRRRRRRRRAAAAAAAAAAAIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIDDDDDDDDDDDDDEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSS

  • priesttj

    Little Nicky Miller the DB killer showed up today.

  • Guy

    Oh and the Chiefs win was a let down

  • Mistabr0wn

    Did #21 makw the plane ride to Den or is he home flossing his teeth ?

  • Bauce 4 Real

    JC getting no apologies from me…….SF was awful man and i had to be live and see it

  • SilverNBlackPA

    I wouldn’t even risk MBush in the 4th quarter. Rock Cartwright should take every handoff.

  • DKnight007

    FINALLY ALL facets of the offense coming together for once and the defense creating turnovers!

    FINALLY a complete TEAM domination and it is against the orange ponies on their turf!

    LUV IT!

    Mike Mitchell stepping it the hell up and DMC is back!

    Yeah baby!

  • Ghost to the Post

    Dakota’s perfect day. WOW!

  • djohnnyg

    Good defensive stop…don’t wanna let this team back in it.

    If we can be up by 38 going into the 4th I think we can hang on.

  • Bauce 4 Real

    Nikki Miller did his thing on that catch….i give him props

  • mkyd1963

    “…but the fact remains that this defense is bad. They just give up huge, gashing plays week in and week out.”

    —-

    Right.

    52-14 Raiders.

    But they’re playing bad defense.

  • DKnight007

    Hue calling great play calls, O-Line playing well overall, JC not screwing it up…and DMC is back to DOMINATING!

    Defense FINALLY creating turnovers is nice to see as well!

  • Pretty Rick

    Looks like I’ll be doing some work in the kitchen this week. I aint even mad. This game looks like me on Madden 11.

  • aig-raiders

    you too bauce and dmac. dakota is at the game though!

  • Bauce 4 Real

    So…..now big question…..who fawkin with Bob and I on halloween? Tailgate gonna go hard

  • Bauce 4 Real

    Yeah JLH gets the PI call!! Good stuff!

  • Carl Weathers

    Lovin the playcalling!

  • priesttj

    If Campbell can play to his potential we can, this is just the start of something big.

  • Too Miller, purdy!

  • Bauce 4 Real

    Dakota has jizzed himself retarded

  • Carl Weathers

    59!!!!!!!!!!

  • RaiderDebo

    JLH!! Starting DHB has killed this team the last couple of years.

  • Bauce 4 Real

    ———————————

    Fair enough. You get a pass. I think a lot of us wrote him off. I defended him all the way up until last week. But even I jumped off the “give JC a chance” bandwagon after that disaster.

    I won’t call him Plunkett, but I think he can play solid football = good enough to keep us in games.

    And he DOESN’T GET HURT easily like Grads. No disrespect to Grads, but he can’t stay healthy.

  • AbusedByAl

    Pinch me!!

  • Bauce 4 Real

    Let’s GO BABY!

  • Ghost2Post

    let DHB sit and LEARN.

  • Bauce 4 Real

    We on these bixes

  • Guy

    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.

  • Just Fire Baby

    Josh McDaniels may not make it through the season.

    Maybe back to calling plays after stealing the defensive signals eh kid??

  • djohnnyg

    This is PAYBACK for that Monday night game.

  • We living it good!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I love it!

  • RaidingTexas

    Man, we’re giving them the Mike Leach treatment.

    When Leach was at Texas Tech, the ESPN radio guys in Dallas called him Jeffrey Dahmer. He feeds on the dead! LMAO!

  • Bauce 4 Real

    Whoop that trick whoop that trick

  • maddenraiderfan

    How has DHB hurt us? Its not like our WRs have done anything this game.

    no DHB get out there and get involved.

  • Bauce 4 Real

    SnB…..you damn right!

  • djohnnyg

    Now the Broncos actually have a reason to hate us now.

  • aig-raiders
