The Broncos played the Raiders on Monday night and horrible is the only word that could be used to describe the Raiders. Or maybe awful. They really stunk up Sports Authority Field in Denver and the stench still lingers.
As with any bad team, penalties hurt the Raiders. They were penalized 15 times for 131 yards.
Raiders quarterback Jacoby Ford couldn’t seem to hold onto the ball. Broncos pass-rusher Von Miller speared the football out of Ford’s arms and strong safety Rahim Moore scooped it up at the Raiders 15. The Broncos scored easily, rubbing salt into the Raider’s wounds.
The Broncos delivered in all areas of the game. A Colquitt punt traveled 65 yards and was downed at the Raider’s 1 yard line, leaving the Raiders in dire straits.
Sebastian Janikowski, who is normally reliable for the Raiders, barely made a routine 63 yard kick.
The Raiders are truly a horrible team and they probably won’t want to show their faces in Denver again any time soon.
The final score was Broncos 20, Raiders 23.
