Halftime: Broncos 13, Raiders 7

By Jerry McDonald - NFL Writer
Thursday, December 6th, 2012 at 6:47 pm in Oakland Raiders.

Carson Palmer completed 9 of 11 passes for 80 yards, including a beautifully conceived 6-yard left screen for the touchdown, as the Raiders got within 13-7 with 1:59 left in the half.

The drive took 6:33 off the clock and was the longest of the season for the Raiders.

The Raiders took advantage of a spectacular diving interception by Phillip Adams in the end zone when the Broncos appeared poised to go up 20-0.

Denver drove to the Oakland 49 before a Mike Mitchell sack helped force a Broncos punt with 20 seconds left in the half.

    The Raiders were effed by the Refs there , how was that false start D freakin came across LOS

    ———————————

    Good centers hike the ball in that situation. It guarantees the call.

    =================================

    The same effing play was called AGAINST our defense last week. Only difference? Our DLineman didn’t get near as deep into the other side of the LOS as the 2 denver goons. THIS SH1T HAS GOT TO STOP!

  • ChrisinNC

    Come on Hanson! YOU HAVE TO LOOK BACK FOR THE BALL!!!

  • r8rpaver

    another 96 yard drive

  • Raider Riff

    Those are some unreal throws by Manning.

  • C2E

    amazing. arguably greatest QB of all time

  • Al_is_theraiders

    if only they wouldve kept their corners…

  • Chris in NY

    Donks look flat tonight. Raiders fired up.

    Talent differential is not as great as the media would have you believe. It’s largely about having a motivated team that’s trained (i.e. coached) to execute at a high level of precision.

    My gawd what are you doing Bartell?

    ——————————-

    Would you rather he let the guy run past him and catch a 20+ yarder? Bartell isn’t going to keep pace with Thomas. He did what he had to in that situation.

    =======

    It was a 20 yard PI…

  • Derek

    Why is bartell playing over Adams. Bartell sux az

  • mcfadden20.

    Thats just great throws by Manning

    I did say 20+. Because if he catches that in stride, it’s probably going a lot farther.

    Mayock is a good announcer. Smart guy. Breaks it down.

    $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

    I love Mayock. Love every notre dame game. He’s great and he’s not a homer.

  • Try Some Reality

    Tired of the bad calls by the refs. Call it one way and be consistent. You cannot continue to propagate this bias against the Raiders. If there is ANY room for questioning, they will rule against us. FACT

    Palmer is way better than you fools give him credit for. He makes a lot of good throws that you guys just take for granted.

    Not just the two bombs to Streater in the last two games, but a bunch of 20 yard ins and outs.

    Everyone assumes Palmer is just a garbage time stats compiler. But it’s not true. Palmer has 148 passing in the first half tonight. He’s averaging 138 in the first halves of games this season and 156 in the second half. Really not a huge disparity.
    ————

    He also makes the game deciding int a lot
    Atl,Tampa, Cle,
    That’s where my frustration comes in. He makes a terrible choice at worst time.

    ——-

    Way to conveniently ignore how many of those INTs were a result of the WR’s running the wrong routes.

    DLess is the laziest route runner Ive seen in a while. Im starting to hate the kid.

    ————
    He maybe, but Palmer should know that and take that into consideration when throwing the timing route. Sucks but true. Like I said earlier I would be happy to be wrong about Carson.
    He reminds me of the year we had Jeff George. Look at his stats. You would have thought we were 12-4 not 4-12. The following year George is hurt and we run through scabs and go 8-8 in grudens first year. George gone the next year for Gannon and we are still trying to get back to those days. We need a leader under center and Palmers not it.

    Kornheiser is funny

    But I’d rather listen to someone that knows football and that isnt dumbing it down. Mayock is refreshing.

    Refs need to be fined if they are repeat offenders!

    If they can hold em to FG we have a chance…
