Broncos jump out to early lead over Raiders

The heavily favored Broncos were expected to have an easy time beating the Raiders at home on Monday night. The first quarter went according to plan.

Peyton Manning directed a long drive that ended in a touchdown pass to Eric Decker on the Broncos’ first possession, and Denver kicker Matt Prater booted a 53-yard field goal, as the Broncos took an early 10-0 lead.

The Raiders’ offense couldn’t do much of anything. Oakland’s first three drives went three-and-out, and the Raiders didn’t manage a first down until quarterback Terrelle Pryor ran for 23 yards in the final minute of the first quarter.

It’s not all good news for Denver, as cornerback Tony Carter limped off the field after hurting his ankle on a special teams play. But injuries aside, this looks like it’s going to be an easy night in Denver.

    Is it really that surprising given the team Peyton has surrounding him?

    Manning is going to knock Brady’s Spygate-tainted passing TD record out of the books. Good to see a REAL MAN’s QB get that record back.

    Brady will be out of football in 2 years like the system QB he is.

    Not a Pats fan, but it does piss me off to see what Manning can do with all of his weapons while Brady is throwing to scrubs.

    Umm gringos the year Brady set the record there was no spygate that was already over. Silly facts.

    No it’s the other way around, the young Patriots receivers have a scrub throwing to them.

    That is, a scrub when his coach isn’t cheating and helping him benefit from Spygate.

    How’s that Charles Woodson signing working out for you, Oakland?

    Seriously, NFL you wasted a perfectly good Monday night by airing this game.

    I watch more SNF now more than MNF. Monday Night has lost it’s edge. It doesn’t feel as special anymore, especially with predictable blow-outs like this one. And I’m saying this in a Week 3 that was anything but predictable.

    “Not a Pats fan, but it does piss me off to see what Manning can do with all of his weapons while Brady is throwing to scrubs.”

    You realize that’s what the patriots chose, right? They let Welker go, had some questionable draft choices, and have some injuries right now. The “Patriot Way” doesn’t cater to individual players, but I think it overstepped by letting Welker go. We’ll see…
