Denver Post.... Raiders blast Broncos 59-14; fans express their displeasure
Broncos were shamefully annihilated by the Oakland Raiders, 59-14, before a disgusted sellout-turned-very-small-crowd at Invesco Field at Mile High. "The whole Broncos organization, country, team, fans, players, coaches, owners, from top to bottom, that was an embarrassing performance." The massacre at Invesco will live on for a while.
This was one of those games in which it looked like the Broncos had eight players on defense. The Raiders had 169 yards rushing by halftime, and tailback Darren McFadden had four touchdowns on 196 yards rushing and receiving with more than five minutes remaining in the third quarter. The Raiders needed only three plays before McFadden scored the first of his four touchdowns.
