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.

    Wow. I don’t know what to say.

    F’ing team is back to # 32 in the league.

    What a waste of time….and a season.

  • Marks hair

    Take the next couple weeks off knapp supporters

  • Ray-Der

    Knapp loves watching Lechlar punt

  • http://www.insidebayarea.com/raiders Silverandblack666

    yeah we are probably a 5-11 team this year not 8-8 like last year.

    The offense has regressed the D has not improved that much.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Brooming out check cashers like Routt and Wimbley had a cost that the Raiders are paying now.

    Once their cap numbers clear AND the Raiders get a pick in the top 32…..they can make the team a lot better…..

    The thing hurting the Raiders right now are those bad contracts and not getting productivity from guys that are collecting big money…but that problem will be cleaned up in due time

  • morilla

    Wow!!!!!! McClain falls on his ass and blows the play.

    So sick of that P.O.S. . Get rid of him.

  • ChrisinNC

    Yeah, so much for Knapp being worth a darn. Back to Krapp.

  • JB

    It’s really too bad because CP3 is really throwing well when he has a chance to do so.

  • RaidingTexas

    How many of you fkn idiots still think Al was a geriatric genius picking Rolando McClain in the first round?=

    We need to trade for a CB , and a Legit pass rusher … Send them 1st round picks

    @@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@@

    Yea. That’s what this team needs. To give up draft picks. Not sure I like our GM, but I’m thanking God our GM isn’t you!!!!!

  • Marks hair

    Slo is terrible at mlb… maybe everywhere

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

    This is disgusting. I feel bad for Dakota.

  • RaiderRockstar

    3 TD’s allowed in 6 minutes??

    McClain gonna show up soon?

  • Raider Riff

    Im done. I dont think I can watch anymore this year.

    I got a smoking hot 22 year old girlfriend drunk back at the apartment. And Im sitting in this bar watching this crap?

    The only people that are bigger losers than me right now are the dumba55es on the field.

  • Try Some Reality

    With all the disappointment in the offense amongst the fans, the Defense is clearly the biggest disappointment. What a pathetic showing.

  • VanHeathen30

    ROMAC WAS ABUSED ON 3rd down…just plain bad

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    The offense has regressed…but that’s because the o-lineman are not good enough for the ZBS.

    Again, they need two guards and a Right Tackle.

    Wiz and Veldheer need more time to adjust.

    Also, DHB not being on the field…or having another solid target hurts the passing game.

    I ain’t stressin over the Raiders this year…I see where it is at.

    At least there is a long term plan in place…let’s see if it works

  • DJ Johnny

    What a f’ing embarrassment.

    Glad DA is “defensive” coach.

    Humiliating.

    I hate sports.

  • JB

    Time for more of the same. Knapp offense is crap.

  • ChrisinNC

    Dang. Their D is hunting now.

  • J Hill

    You cats are hilarious.

    We are going to hear from the Knapp and 55 bashers all week long.

    Won’t hear one peep about Tarver, Branch, LBs inabilty to cover a TE or protect the middle of the field, or this soft arsse zone.

    Did Houston or ShoNicely neven get a paw on Manning?

  • DT42

    I have yet to see a wide zone play that has worked this year. Still waiting for adjustments coming out of halftime. Defensive is regressing and channeling the spirit of Chuck B. I think that DA is going to be an amazing coach. Just somewhere else. No concept of AFC West Raider week. No concept that teams are gunning for us.

    I never liked the pick, thought he was too slow

  • JB

    The O-line is terrible right now.

    =======

    RIght the “plan” included hiring the worst OC in football. ANd yes clearing up cap room to sign Brisel & every piece of dog crap reject from GreenBay. I’m so excited.

  • JB

    Time to pull CP3, not because he’s playing bad but, don’t want him to get hurt out there. We simply can’t buy a break now.

  • J Hill

    LOL at the blame going to 55.

    4 3 and outs!!!!

    10 yds total offense in mile high THIN ARSSE air.

    Defense’s lungs are probably bleeding right now, lol.

  • DKnight007

    Outcoached…

    The return of Knapp fellas!

    You people really thought Knapp was worth a damn after last weeks game where he not nothing to do with the comeback in the 2nd half?

    The rebuild year for the Raiders is in full effect!

  • RaiderRockstar

    Bresnahan > Tarver ??

  • AmysInCharge

    Hows them Faiders doin fellas?…A`s in a tight one. Niners looked good,..Giants getting their playoff rotation set. Theres your bay area sports update,…thank God the Niners are awesome, the Faiders make the bay area look soft. Go A`s! ;)

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

    We are getting killed by a team that is going to be 2-3 after next week.

  • DJ Johnny

    Yet another 3 and out?

    Man….there’s nothing left to say..

  • DKnight007

    I thought we were supposed to see the last of the vanilla base 4-3 defense this year??

  • Marks hair

    Tarver doesn’t have any players. No CBs, crappy safeties, and no pass rushers.

  • RaiderRockstar

    Agreed, JB

    let Leinart mop up this mess

  • J Hill

    Willies and Joes people.

  • RaidersAllday_LtsGeTit

    Tom cable would never allow this

  • DKnight007

    Rebuild mode is still in full effect.

    I told you last year was a miracle win.

    This team wins 4 or 5 games max this year!

  • AmysInCharge

    Oh wait one more thing,..you all happy with the GM you been pining away for?…LMAO…Big Dummy Reggie,..LMAO

    Yep, a defense chock full of idiotic Al Davis guys. My fkn gawd they are bad. Jesus.

  • SnB offense defense specialteams

    Look, you guys can dog Knapp all year long….he ain’t going anywhere. They believe in this system.

    What’s clear to me is that the o-line, as its constructed today, can’t run this model.

    Reggie and Knapp will look for new o-lineman….simple as that.

    A bad season this year will give Reggie license to totally clean house….which I expect.

    But this season is not lost yet…its never lost until you lose that 5th game.

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

    I would lie to see Ro Mac separate Manning’s shoulder before this game is over.

  • J Hill

    ————————————————————

    So why don’t you give Palmer the blame fpr this 2nd half if you gave him credit for last weeks 2nd half?

  • DT42

    Tom Cable could teach Oline man how to zone block.

  • RaiderRockstar

    nice hit, Wheeler!
