675

Final: Broncos 37, Raiders 21

A game the Raiders hoped would cause skeptics to take notice instead turned into a showcase for Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos Monday night at Sports Authority Field.

The final score was 37-21, but the game was essentially over after a nearly perfect first half by Manning against a helpless Oakland defense, much to the delight of a crowd of 76,978.

Manning directed the Broncos to a 27-7 halftime lead, completing 21 of 24 passes for 264 yards and touchdown passes of 2 yards to Eric Decker, 12 yards to Wes Welker and 13 yards to Julius Thomas to go along with field goals of 53 and 41 yards by Matt Prater.

In the second half, Prater kicked a 40-yard field goal and running back Darren McFadden took a pitch and threw a 16-yard touchdown pass to Marcel Reece on a rollout. The 70-yard scoring drive was set up by Oakland’s first takeaway of the season, a Manning fumble that was recovered by Jason Hunter.

Ronnie Hillman put the Broncos up 37-14 with a 1-yard run with 11:27 left in the game as the Broncos were able to run on the Oakland defense most of the night, making Manning that much tougher.

Raiders quarterback Terrelle Pryor was the most consistent thing the Raiders had going for them on offense, completing 19 of 28 passes for 281 yards and a 73-yard touchdown pass to Denarius Moore.

Pryor left the game after taking a hit from Wesley Woodyard while throwing a pass on the Raiders final drive, with Matt Flynn coming in to finish the game.

Following a fumble recovered by the Raiders, Flynn completed a pass to Marcel Reece to the 1-yard line, with McFadden scoring on a 1-yared run with 1:15 remaining.

Pryor’s touchdown pass to Moore, who ran 53 yards after the catch after catching a 20-yard pass, got the Raiders within 17-7 in the first However, the Broncos restored order with an 80-yard drive that took only 2:17 and ended in the Manning-to-Thomas touchdown pass.

On the first play of that drive, Manning found Decker for a 61-yard pass, with Mike Jenkins narrowly missing getting a hand on the ball. Decker, who had six catches for 113 yards in the first half, turned upfield after Jenkins hit the ground and ran to the 19-yard line.

The Raiders failed to get a first down until Pryor raced around left end for 23 yards on a keeper after a play-fake to McFadden. Only 47 seconds remained in the half and Denver had taken a 10-0 lead.

McFadden, who has three games of 100 or more yards against the Broncos in his career, found little or no running room, with 7 carries for 9 yards with a long gain of 4 yards.

It was the Raiders’ fourth consecutive loss to the Broncos, who have won their last 14 regular-season games, including wins by three touchdowns or more against the last two Super Bowl champions to start the season.

    BTW — where’s all the talk about how Pryor makes the running game better? Someone please explain to me how DMac had more yards passing than he did rushing. How can that happen when apparently all 11 defenders are so afraid of Pryor’s running that DMac is supposed to be busting off 50 yard runs.

    Or maybe it’s just the difference between the Jags and the Donks defense …

    He is Kapernick 2.0 he has everything a qb needs to succeed and only looks good because of talent. as a drop back passer he is quick to run, his arm isn’t that strong, he has the best o line other than Alabama and receivers and TE’s to throw too. A lot of people see through his chrade and hey buddy, speed as a qb doesn’t mean he’s Tom Brady 2.0 or the guy we just lost too. Why do u think he left Oregon after they got Mariota or maybe you didn’t know that? He’s a college star but won’t transition well.

    Delivered? What. Pizza?

    He is a serviceable back up and did what any serviceable back up making 6.5 mil would do.
    **********

    he delivered a quick strike in stride for 19 yards to the 1.

    cold off the bench.

    he’s ten times as good as pryor.

    ===

    I had to listen to the start of the game on the radio on the way to hockey practice, missed the middle, and then heard the last 2:00 minutes, right when Flynn was coming in.

    One of the announcers (forget which, maybe Plunket?) talked for about 30 seconds on the difference in Flynn’s arm strength from preseason. Said in practice this week that Flynn was noticeably stronger throwing than he was all preseason and that his tendonitis really prevented him from being able to compete. He said that the time off made a huge difference.

    I’d like to see myself how much difference there is. This has nothing to do with Pryor, it’s just that the more I hear about his elbow and the more we saw how bad the line is, it’s clear we didn’t see the best Flynn.

People try to show you the positives, but all you see is the negatives, maybe because you are blinded by your own ideas. Or maybe you just like to stir sh!t up and get a reaction from people.

    Either way, it is late, and I am off to bed.

    We can check notes on Sunday, if Flynn ends up playing. Until then, have a good week.

  • the notorious dr robert

    zymurge—flynn can throw. i really believe he will be outstanding if given the opportunity.

    it was one throw but he was cold off the bench and he stood in as the rush was collapsing and fired a dart in stride to reece.

    this offense can move if we get him in there.

    but we also have to dump dmc.

    flynn/reece or flynn/jennings and we beat washington.

    you’re right that Flynn wouldn’t extend plays. Because he’d simply find the open receiver and get rid of the ball, saving his O-line 5-second holding penalties and actually giving the O some rhythm.

    Notice no play-calling issues on that last short Flynn drive. No crazy street ball. Just a solid pin-point pass and 7 points.

    can ANYONE counter this?

    “Pryor Brigade hated Flynn for being a “dink and dunk game manager” and wanted the “exciting playmaker” Pryor,

    but man they love them some dink and dunk game managing that leads to losses when it’s their guy.”

    $$$$$$$$

    I can. Easily…

    Pryor escapes the rush and throws on the run for yards after extending plays,

    Flynn would be sacked,

    Pryor wasn’t drinking and dunking he had that big pass to dmoore and got a TD of it.

    Flynn over threw Moore on an open play

    Flynn made one pass and he’s god now? Man they way you guys think smh.

    Pryor can make passes down field not just the check down.

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

    But the problem I have with Pryor is too many inaccurate throws and poor decisions like….

    6 yard pass on 3rd and 10

    1 yard pass on 3rd and 6

    pass to the 1 yard line on 3rd and goal

    Pass at Reece’s feet when he was open with room to run

    Throw was behind DMo on 4th and goal

    Took a sack to end the first half

    Ran into the blitz several times
