End 1st qtr: Broncos 10, Raiders 3

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 30th, 2012 at 1:38 pm in Oakland Raiders.

The Broncos closed out the first quarter with a 21-yard field goal by Matt Prater to take a seven-point lead into the second quarter.

Until Peyton Manning fired incomplete into the end zone on third-and-goal from the 3 and Richard Seymour batted down a fourth-down pass, the Raiders have shown no inclination to stop Manning and the Broncos from moving the ball. Manning finished the quarter 12-for-16 for 133 yards and one touchdown _ a 22-yard strike to Joel Dreessen.

The Raiders marched from their own 20 to the Denver 20 before stalling on their only possession, getting a 38-yard field goal from Sebastian Janikowski.

    Knapp playing for the FG???

  • Just Fire Baby

    Nice actually having 3 timeouts at the end of each half.

    A welcome change from last year.

  • RaiderRockstar

    I feel a TD pass to Reece coming

  • JT

    Palmer is at his best doing audibles at the line

    thats the diference up to this point

  • morilla

    Had a feeling this was going to be a repeat of the Steeler game. No major meltdowns. The Bronco D is nothing special.

    AND???

    Hey Amysincharge, how come every whiner fan is a clueless trophy wife twit?

    I really don’t understand all Knapp’s run calls when time is running down in the red zone.

  • mcfadden20.

    Knapp’s Red Zone Playcalling is the most putrid f’n display of football I’ve ever seen.

  • DKnight007

    Bad play call in the red zone….typical Knapp.

    FG’s are not going to cut it!

  • RaiderRockstar

    good playcall by Knapp. poor execution

    Yes it is typical

  • Marks hair

    At least they gave us the ball twice… if we get 2 miracles in the second half maybe we’ll be okay..

  • DJ Johnny

    Horrible fing call.

  • R8RNAZ

    no scores to end half and we got a shot

    NINERS destroyed the Jets today,…Superbowl bound.

    Pretty hilarious. You have to be the worst troll ever. I have never seen anyone try so much for any amount of attention and just fail.

    I will break the fourth wall and acknowledge you so you don’t kill yourself from lack of attention.

    Well, that was fun. Going to ignore you again (like everyone else). Take care.

  • DKnight007

    Knapp is an idiot.

    Why didn’t he power run with Reece on that 3rd down and why empty the backfield??

    Knapp playing for FG’s…again!

  • burn_209

    KNAPP!!!!!

    Everyone that supported him should just kill themselves…..honestly

  • JT

    10-6
    we get the ball first next half, but that O better score 7′s

  • https://twitter.com/Albert_B_Paine Albert Bigelow Paine

    That was some sh*t play calling in the Red Zone.

  • RaiderRockstar

    throw was just beyond Aus’ reach

    ^^^^^^^
    Lame excuse…

  • DJ Johnny

    You gotta do better than that on 3rd and 3 in the redzone.

    Flip it to DMAC.. or SOMETHING other than THAT.

  • RaiderRockstar

    good work #31

  • AmysInCharge

    NINERS. ;)

  • Ghost2Post

    we get the ball after the half.

  • R8RNAZ

    Not great but not as bad as last week!

  • http://www.RAIDERS.com Back-n-Black

    How did Knapp con his way into this job TWICE????

    I mean, I can understand someone making a mistake once, but you have to be pretty f’n stupid to make that big of a f’kup TWICE…

  • Try Some Reality

    Lol. Crappy playcalling because it didn’t work? The pass was to the end zone, folks. That’s not playing for the FG. You guys call for a run when they pass and a pass when they call for a run. Make up your minds!

  • RaiderRockstar

    new post

  • DJ Johnny

    Palmer’s arm looks hurt…oh boy.

  • DKnight007

    Emptying the backfield on that 3rd down play in red zone had mistake written all over it.

    Terrible play call by Knapp. He tipped the offenses hand to the defense.

    Palmer should have changed that play call!

    Damn it!

  • burn_209

    6 points in the first half

    KNAPP!!!!!!!!

    If you really were taking sh!t last week because he had a good game I hope you feel like a dumbass

  • morilla

    10-6 at the half and we get the ball. People need to start picking up weed as a habit and relax.

  • redshirt

    CP3 will take over playcalling in 2nd half
