Rant Sports Post-Game Coverage: Recapping Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders
The Denver Broncos entered Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders looking to end a four-game losing streak at home against their division rivals and thanks to a strong performance by Peyton Manning–they managed to come through with a big 37-6 win.
Manning led the way for the Broncos by completing 30 of 38 passes for 338 yards to go along with three interceptions and zero touchdowns as Denver picked up their second win of the season to improve to 2-2. After back-to-back losses to the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans, there was plenty of questions surrounding Manning and whether or not they made a mistake by signing the future Hall of Fame quarterback during the offseason–especially after throwing three interceptions in the first half against the Falcons.
The best part about Sunday’s game for Denver is Manning looked like his old dominant self once again by creating problems for Oakland’s defense for the entire game. Not only was Manning perfect in the turnover category, but the offensive line did an excellent job at protecting their quarterback as the Raiders failed to record a single sack.
As for Oakland’s offense, they failed to get anything going against Denver’s defense as Darren McFadden was limited to just 34 rushing yards and Carson Palmer displayed another disappointing performance–completing just 19 of 34 passes for 202 yards.
Up next, Manning faces a familiar foe as the Broncos travel to Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Manning may be with a different team, but this rival will still be just as intense as the past considering these two quarterbacks are Canton bound when the time is right.
