Halftime: Broncos 10, Raiders 6

Sebastian Janikowski kicked a 24-yard field goal with 22 seconds left in the half as the Raiders capitalized on a horrific decision by the Broncos and went into halftime trailing by only four points.

The Broncos wasted a scoring opportunity on an ill-advised fake out of field goal formation on fourth-and-1 from the Oakland 36-yard line.

Coming as it did when Manning was 17 of 22 for 196 yards and Willis McGahee was gaining yards on the ground, the idea of having Matt Prater take a pitch from the holder and throw a pass was over-thinking at its best _ or worst.

Oakland took possession, and with Carson Palmer hitting Denarius Moore with a 37-yard pass into Denver 13, had a chance to tie the score.

The Raiders could not make Denver pay in full, however, getting to the 6-yard line with a third-and-3, a drive that ended when Palmer threw incomplete to David Ausberry at the goal line.

    Can’t get any pass-rush so we are forced to blitz, and we are getting burnt.

  • RaiderRockstar

    quit blitzing,Tarver!!

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    D is undermanned…just like the previous two games.

    Gotta keep the game close and come up big on a key 4th QTR drive.

  • DJ Johnny

    J Hill – Where are you, bro? I think Huff is very happy playing like an average corner or worse. What a pathetic whiff.

    would be nice to have some DBs
    ……

    And some safeties, and some LBs, and some d-lineman, and some WRs, and some O-lineman, and some Coaches.

    But other than that we’re good.

  • arena of truth

    Good job DA…way to throw the challenge and give the ball to manning….don’t you know you can’t stop them?

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    We knew the offense had to carry the day.

    Gotta respond

    BTW, this will be the way it is for the entire season.

    Keep responding and put yourself in a position to win it at the end

    Has Manning even through a ball more than 25 yards down field? With no pass rush, he can do anything he wants underneath.

  • mcfadden20.

    Can’t defend when the players are getting picked too ..

  • mcfadden20.

    We need a score here

    Oh, but fans in here were BEGGING for the blitz. LOL!

    Can’t blitz Manning and leave any area open. He will find it. Not mobile but the guy knows where to go with the ball.

    99% of the coaches in the league would have challenged that play…NOT DA though.

    Took you into the 3rd qtr to come up with a bad play by Huff, lol.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Manning doesn’t have to be great. remember Ryan Fitzpatrick last year?

    he’s just taking what the defense gives him … which is anything he wants

  • PlunkforHOF

    Lets get it together.. Good TO by CP3

    Knapp and his sad attempts and designs of a screen

    Comical!

    KK Munster, did you see that Socialist Chavez giving our Socialist love?

    mope & change

  • DT42

    As much as I’m not sold on the “new regime” I can’t blame that last score in DA or Tarver on that one. Broncos WR picked our defender. Score one for the refs.
