End 1st qtr: Broncos 10, Raiders 3

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.

    So much for this highly touted D-line. Pressure will be a problem no matter who we have as our corners. If we blitz, we risk a big play like the huge 3rd and 7 conversion on Denver’s first drive.

    The answer is not as simple as some fans like to make it. You can’t just solve our problems with the blitz.

    Branch looking great out there. Manning going to go to the TE all day.

    Our D-Line is doing nothing. Our CBs are doing nothing. Oue DEs are worthless.

    Its gotta be a shootout again.

  • RaiderRockstar

    can Tyvon longsnap??

  • JT

    memo to Knapp:

    you need to somehow figure to get a long drive and 7 points, or this will be a long game

  • r8eray

    5 on it!

  • Raider Riff

    Our defense on pace to give up 600 yards.

    Im seeing nothing fancy out of the D scheme.

    Why isnt Carter out there again?

    This is pathetic.

  • r8eray

    Oh well…maybe next time!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Knapp started slow last week. dominated 2nd half

    remember??

  • JT

    broncos 167 yards of O in 1 quarter

    raider D will be gased if Palmer and Knapp cant score

  • R8RNAZ

    We just gotta keep scoring on long time consuming games. need to shorten the game and we will have a chance. Only chance………..

    Seymour just single handedly stopped a TD, wtf are you talking about S&B?

  • JB

    Manning is eating our lunch. The real test will be the half time adjustments on the D side. Manning gets rid of the ball too quickly for our D-linemen to get at him. The best thing they can do is get their hands up to block the passing lanes. That, and stuffing any run attempt.

    CP3 needs to keep pace with Manning. If he does, we still have a chance.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Donkeys are gonna do everything possible to protect their investment (Manning). Why are we surprised the pass rush isn’t working??

  • R8RNAZ

    I like what I m seeing on O. keep’em guessing

  • Marks hair

    Great play

  • JT

  • Marks hair

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Hey Goodson, I know you’re Reggie’s boy, but why don’t you make the block there so we can get 6.

  • RaiderRockstar

    0 for 10 on passes over 21 yards on the season

  • ChrisinNC

    I just think it’s hilarious that people were talking all this trash the whole week about how Manning is washed up, ain’t got a chance against us. Can’t count how many times i facepalmed reading that stupid crap. Bunch of idiots.

    No, Fox outfoxing Knapp

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

    This f’n defense is killing me.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Goodson can’t block. neither can Jones

    we knew this during the offseason

    unfortunately the O-line can’t either

  • Just Fire Baby

    seriously?
