Broncos hold on to beat Raiders 16-10

AP

First, the Raiders lost their quarterback. Then, they lost the game.

Raiders Nation will hold its breath, awaiting word on the extent of the back injury to Derek Carr. The quarterback left the game late in the third quarter.

E.J. Manuel completed 11 of 17 passes for 106 yards in Carr’s absence, rallying the Raiders. But his last pass was intercepted by safety Justin Simmons at the Denver 8 with 1:46 remaining, ending the Raiders’ comeback attempt.

The Broncos jumped out to a 10-0 lead in the first quarter and held on.

Trevor Siemian completed 16 of 26 passes for 179 yards and a touchdown, while C.J. Anderson rushed for 95 yards on 20 carries. The Broncos gained 205 yards in the first half but only 93 in the second half.

The Raiders rushed for only 24 yards as Marshawn Lynch had nine carries for 12 yards.

Oakland gained 254 yards, with 99 coming on one drive.

Khalil Mack had two sacks and Von Miller one in a matchup of two of the league’s premiere pass-rushers.

  1. Remember 5 weeks ago when the Raiders were going to run rough shot over the AFC West and eventually face the undefeated Patriots in the AFC Championship?

    Now they are both 2-2 and in 3rd place in their respective divisions.

    Elway doesn’t know how to put an offense together. He needs to hire a real gm

    A Broncos fan that doesn’t know what they’re talking about. He put together TE number 1 offense of all time. We have a GM that took us to two SBs in his short time with us.

    Don’t think you should be saying anyone sucks right now. You let Cam come into your house and beat you lmao. That New England D ( if you want to call that a defense) is terrible.

    Cool story, now compare it to a team with a QB who plays absolutely zero defense. Denver’s defense will score points throughout the year, New England’s offense can’t keep points off the board.

    he bought a barry bonds of qbs and got blown out 43-8
    in a super bowl

    not impressive

  7. Carr, like I have said many many times, is just an average QB.
    The Raiders will be average this year…..again

  8. I hope that Carr doesn’t have a serious injury. All in all, it was a tough loss but the Raiders defense played pretty well after letting Siemian (who is hot garbage) do damage to them in the 1st quarter. Manuel was very effective in relief of Carr up to that game-killing pick but then he was also an unknown to the Denver defense.

    I hope that if/when Carr comes back that he’s not as ineffective as he’s been in his last 7 quarters and can live up to that big contract. If he’s out for a long time or the slump continues then it’ll be a long season for the Raiders

  9. The Raiders defense kept them in the game. They appear to be improving. Oakland’s offensive line play is terrible right now.

  10. From the days of George Blanda, I have been a Raider fan. Al going crazy, lost Super Bowel, coaching changes, losing year after year, it didn’t matter I was still a happy Raider fan. No more, I’m glad they lost.

    First time ever I wanted Raiders to lose

    (name Charger 383 is for a Dodge car)

  11. tylawpick6 just can’t stay away from trolling everything Broncos. Worry about your own team, no one cares what you have to say.

    BTW that pats defence couldn’t stop a high school team.

    With the exception of when they had Tebow at QB, the Pats haven’t been able to get through Denver in the playoffs. The team owns Belichick and Brady during this time, so he trolls Broncos articles hoping what he says is true, because if they meet in the playoffs we know how it ends for them.

    Wanted to watch the game, but couldn’t deal with Romo. That guy is HORRIBLE
    ===

    I’ll give you that Tony Romo doesn’t have a classic announcer’s voice, and he tends to talk a lot. But any knowledgeable football fan knows his analysis is very GOOD!

  14. Not sure who is worse to listen to…Dan Fouts, or Tony Romo….plus I would like to see the replay that clearly showed the ball was not moving on Mack’s strip sack fumble on Semen. I think that is what you need to over turn a call on made on the field…by far could have been biggest play of game

  15. Siemian has not demonstrated that he can take the Broncos to the playoffs. He started well but then seem to get spooked by the Raiders rush. The Raiders have an excellent defense, on par with the Broncos. Their offense looks shaky even with a healthy Carr.

  16. Stop excusing Siemians poor decision making.

    Yeah.. he’ll toss a few nice passes, but when under pressure, mostly he panics and starts chunking 50/50 balls.

    Did last week, did this week. Nothing skillful about it.

    Several of those were blind luck and could have been the difference in the game… LOSING.. and will eventually.

  17. Raiders badly exposed for second week in a row. Welcome to third place in the West. Better than 4th, no? Prediction: Raiders will miss the playoffs by a wide margin Smiling Jack Del Rio and entire coaching staff let go. Reggie 32-52 on very thin ice. Derek Carr will still be below career .500. Book it, Dano!
