Halftime: Broncos 10, Raiders 6

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Sunday, September 30th, 2012 at 2:24 pm in Oakland Raiders.

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.

    Somehow this is Palmer’s fault

  • RaiderRockstar

    terrible throw by Palmer. Myers was wide open

  • Marks hair

    THIS is why we didnt want knapp!!! The offense HAS TO CARRY US!!! and knapp fùcked it up! Dmacs being wasted!

  • MaddenRaiderisadouchebag

    Yeah I knew Allen would find their weaknesses

  • JT

    Here comes Manning…

  • DT42

    I can’t remember when our special teams has been so pi$$ poor.

  • J Hill

    Manning isn’t doing much, imo.

    Pretty simple to me that we have no answer for the middle of the field. TEs are killing us all year.

    This is what they fired Hue for???

    I understand why Hue had to go, but THIS is what I get in his place?

    This team has went 3 steps backwards.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Our first FING block w out starting long snapper in a decade. We suck in every area of the game. I actually can’t tell which is worse the players or the coaches. They all suck b@lls as far as I can see. Another pathetic showing. Another humiliating embarrassment.

  • R8RNAZ

    =========================================
    Bend but don’t break….they are working hard on stopping the deeper stuff and willing to let Manning hit’em up with shorter throws.

    Is what it is….they have to put masking tape on this thing.

    Still a game…..plenty of time

  • JT

    DA = Kiffin

    Knapp = Tom Walsh

    Regie Mac = Mat Millen

  • DJ Johnny

    Tarver sucks…

  • RaidingTexas

    Awful defense. Awful special teams. Mediocre offense. You can’t win with that formula.

    Knapp supporters need to let this sink in.

  • arena of truth

    Game over…..Raiders win maybe 5 games.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Well its back on like it was b4 the steeler win.

    Allen has to go. He is Kiffen 2.0.. hiring Knapp was a mistake.

    IF Mark Davis was smart he would have a get out of Coach contract after 1 year.

    Damn, put Lechler at Qb

  • RaidingTexas

    I hope you fkn Al-worshippers understand what a gawddam mess he left behind. Jesus fkn H christ McClain is the most awful top 10 linebacker in the history of the NFL. I wish somebody would shoot him so we can be rid of his sorry azz. Put him in prison. Anything. Just get him out of Oakland. My gawd he is awful.

  • mcfadden20.

    Oh well bye came at the right time, hopefully atleast spencer comes back otherwise we might be shredded to pieces

  • JB

    McCheese is living up to & beyond his name. He is a poor example of MLB. He can’t get off blocks and he dogs it once the play passes him by. Bench his lazy ass and let’s someone else (Goethal) try.

  • Raider Riff

    This is pathetic. I cant believe I wait all week for this.
