End 3rd qtr: Broncos 26, Raiders 7


Matt Prater’s 20-yard field goal and a gift touchdown courtesy of the special teams and the offense put the Broncos in charge in the third quarter, which has been a disaster for the Raiders most of the season.

After Oakland forced a Denver field goal attempt despite a first-and-goal at the 1, Mike Goodson elected to return a kickoff deep in the end zone.

He only made it to the 8, and moments later Carson Palmer was the victim of a sack fumble by Von Miller, who blew past Khalif Barnes. The resulting Denver recovery set up a 1-yard run by Knowshon Moreno.

The Broncos later added a 33-yard field goal by Prater to cap a 13-0 quarter and are being outscored 139-51 in the third quarter this season.

    You can’t compare the Patriots and Eagles to the Raiders.


    You’re right. The Raiders have not lost 8 straight games. Yet.

    Raiders need depth. Today’s starters are the second layer of depth..at most positions. Skype that.

  • canadianraider

    hey guys..someone might have touched on this….regarding palmers fumble…whats the difference between that and bradys tuck rule?

  • CJ Legend 34

    Is that Pryor Sullivan u retard?

  • TerrapinRaider

    Seems like the Broncos are taking their foot off the gas. Coasting to victory. Maybe the score doesn’t get worse than it is now.

    Awful coaching though.

  • mcfadden20.

    Just score some points baby

  • Raidervill

    The biggest difference in the Raiders, by far, from this year compared to the last two 8-8 years is the drop off of the running game. From top #2 and #7 to almost dead last in the NFL. Palmer was not supposed to have to carry this offense. Everyone knows he is not the same guy who can carry a team like back in 2006. The coaches botched the O-line, misused the RB’s, oversaw the regression of both Moore and DHB. Not to mention have helped minimize our most effective player in DMac.

  • CJ Legend 34

    Who really cares about Palmers fumble. He throws to many INTS Zoalmer is overrated. He never protects the ball.

  • mcfadden20.

    Mcfadden is injured again

  • Al_is_theraiders

    how stupid he looks…

    Maybe u guys should realize that Pryor isn’t even the staffs minds. It’s just this blog.

    Don’t blame Reggie for the years and years of one year BS!! He has no salary cap room to bring in new players. No draft picks and a bunch of Al Davis scholarship clowns. See Greembay and say no more Reggie helped build that team. What you see tonight is a bunch of clowns that would not start on most teams.


    He brought in the worst staff in the league…BTW, why did GB pass him over for Mike Sherman & Ted Thompson?

  • morilla

    You see that 2004 1st round pick graphic? Yeah, thought so.

  • SR Raider

    yay! TD at last

  • Al_is_theraiders

    as you talk mayock what an idiot..,

  • 0ak r8rs

    On the bright side I think Tarver really did a good job this week. And maybe even played a little possum, and on a short week. It’s obvious he had a plan. And it was defensive technique breakdowns and offensive ineptitude that contributed to most of the Donks 26 points.

  • RaidingTexas

    The one thing DHB does well – YAC. I cannot take that away from him.

    There is Mike Mayock making excuses for Reggie & DA…pathetic…Bring up Brisel, bring up that every game we are getting blown out.

    you can “scout” Reggie, from a distance?
    in under one season?
    without him having a 1st or 2nd round pick?
    with no coaches or FAs wanting to come to Oakland?

    while his UNDRAFTED and low round picks are becoming our BETTER players?
    Alex, reggie could have cut seymour and saved 7.5 mil, instead he does not cut him, give him a new contract and when he is cut next year it hits our cap by 5.5 mil, Reggie surprisingly franchises branch then signs him long term which hurts our cap space, Reggie restructured Palmers contract to pay him 15 mil guaranteed next year, then Reggie signs Briesel which when cut hits our cap by 2.7 mil next year. Add in the whiffs with bartell and the secondary and its obvious he’s over his head. Although you focus on reggie’s excuses, all of the above is on reggie and he had a bad year..he’s got alot to prove

    Time to pad the stats.

  • Carson is a machine all of a sudden. A leader emerging. Fight in the dog.

  • CJ Legend 34

    LMAO!!! DHB scores and Mamming never puts his head up! Keeps looking at film. D@mn!

  • alex7

    our starting RT = cut by the Jaguars.
    starting FS = cut by the Falcons.
    starting CB Hanson = cut by 49ers and Eagles.
    other starting CB = cut by 49ers
    starting OLB Wheeler = cut by Colts.
    starting MLB = cut by Panthers.
    starting WR = undrafted out of Temple.

    it’s going to take some time.

  • dr_robert

    Lol! I made Sullivan cry.

  • J Hill

    We are going to hear about Palmer’s great stats, lol.

  • eastoaklandraider

    Meaningless TD.

  • Marks hair

    Our staff is too dumb to realize the seasons over and that we need to address whether or not we have a quarterback of the future on our roster

    DA needs to go! What a pathetic third quarter again, No Pryor why?

    Because Pryor is a pipe dream. Pryor needs to go to his “well” every play, the run option. That won’t cut it. Not here, not anywhere in the NFL. The kid can’t audible out of a paper bag. The coaching staff has said so by saying nothing and keeping him inactive.

    What more do you guys need to understand he won’t be a Raider soon?!
    We haven’t seen him try to run any offense. We haven’t seen him forced into only running the option. We haven’t seen him audible or need to audible. We haven’t seen the coaches be competent enough to count their inaction as Pryor being terrible. It’s not like this coaching staff is oozing with trust-ability.

    Prove that on the field. You say he wont be here. Palmer wont be here long either. Prove Pryor’s incompetence on the field.

  • Priesttj12

    No talent on defense huh?

    You guys are bad play announcers!!

    See even Mayock is pointing out why the RAiders are in this mess, because of horrible Al D draft p1cks

    Brian Billick said Russell was the highest rated player the Ravens ever grated. McClain, Huff, Gallery, DMC were ALL regarded as the top 10 players of their respective drafts…The only “questionable” selection at the time was DHB.

  • Just Win Baby

    Raiders D will give up a TD on this drive. Guarantee it. Deep ball to Thomas right over Bartell. Watch.
