15:00: The Raiders have a first-and-10 at the Denver 30-yard line. JaMarcus Russell drops back and lofts a pass to Darren McFadden who was streaking down the sideline. His legs got tangled up with Marquand Manuel’s and both players fell down. A flag is thrown and pass interference is called on Manuel. It’s a first-and-goal for the Raiders at the six-yard line.
14:54: Justin Fargas takes the handoff two yards before being brought down by Marcus Thomas. That brings up second-and-goal from the four-yard line, and Russell fakes a handoff before finding Ashley Lelie in the middle of the end zone for a touchdown.
The Sebastian Janikowski extra point is good, and the Raiders’ lead over the Broncos is extended to 24-10.
14:08: Royal is back deep to receive. The kick goes out of the back of the end zone, and the Broncos offense sets up at the 20-yard line. Cutler takes the snap out of the shotgun formation and gets the ball to a diving Tony Scheffler, who hauls it in as he falls out of bounds for an 18-yard gain.
Oakland Head Coach Tom Cable throws out the challenge flag, however, and the play will be reviewed.
The play is overturned — Scheffler apparently had his right foot in bounds but his left hand touched out of bounds before his other foot came down. Second-and-10 for Denver at its own 20.
14:03: Cutler is lined up in the shotgun with four receivers out wide. He takes the snap and gets it to Brandon Stokley, who picks up two yards before being dragged down.
Third-and-8 from their own 22 for the Broncos. Cutler is in shotgun with four receivers again, and he throws an interception to the left sideline. Thomas Howard comes away with it and runs out of bounds. The Raiders take over at the Denver 43.
On the first play after the interception, Justin Fargas takes the hand off and scampers 21 yards to the Denver 22. On the next play he follows it up with a four-yard gain, setting up second-and-6 for Oakland.
12:14: Fargas is stopped for no gain on second down, but on third down he grabs nine yards and sets Oakland up with a first-and-goal from the nine-yard line. He proceeds to take another carry up the left side for a three-yard gain on first down.
10:30: On second-and-goal, the crowd is getting into it, but Darren McFadden takes a carry, fights his way up the left sideline and gets knocked out of bounds by Roderick Rogers at the one-yard line just before stretching the ball out over the pylon.
That sets up third-and-goal at the one-yard line for Oakland. The INVESCO Field faithful are on their feet, but McFadden plows up the middle into the end zone for the fourth Raiders touchdown of the day. The Janikowski extra point is good, and Oakland leads the Broncos by 21 points, 31-10.
9:09: After a one-yard loss on a Peyton Hillis run and an incomplete pass to Brandon Stokley, Brandon Marshall catches a Cutler pass on third-and-11, turns around and sprints his way for some extra yardage, getting a first down and putting the Broncos in Raiders territory.
Hillis takes the first-down carry for 12 yards, setting up another first down at the Oakland 37-yard line.
8:04: After an incomplete pass on first down, the Broncos are called for an illegal motion on second down, setting up second-and-15 at the Oakland 42. Cutler throws the ball over Marshall’s head and out of bounds, setting up third-and-15.
7:43: Cutler is in the shotgun and hands off to Hillis on a draw play. The crowd is showing some displeasure as the Broncos are left with a fourth-and-10.
Cutler completes the pass to Marshall for a first down, but there’s a flag on the play. There are two fouls on the play — holding on the defense, and a personal foul chop block on the offense. The penalties offset, and the offense will replay fourth down.
6:52: This time around the pass falls incomplete, intended for Marshall. Stokley sprints over to the referee to argue for a penalty, but no flag is thrown. The Raiders take over at their own 37-yard line.
6:29: On first down, Fargas picks up two yards, and Spencer Larsen is shaken up on the play. He’s helped off the field, and Fargas picks up five yards on second down. On third down, Russell bootlegs to his right and gets a first down before being touched down by Marquand Manuel.
Play is stopped because there’s a Bronco down on the field — I can’t tell who it is yet. Looks like it was Josh Shaw, and he walks off the field flanked by trainers.
3:50: It’s second-and-3 for the Raiders and they pick up one yard on a run by McFadden.
On third-and-1, McFaden bursts forward for the first down before being brought down after five yards by Marcus Thomas.
2:20: Fargas takes the carry on first down, geting close to the marker. It is a first down as the clock winds down to the two minute warning.
2:00: Russell takes two knees to close out the game.
The Oakland Raiders come away with the three-touchdown victory, 31-10. The Broncos move to 6-5 with the loss. Next week the team travels to New York to face the Jets.
