I would like everybody to stand and take a moment of silence for the Oakland Raiders defense.
Now everybody can open their eyes and be seated. Man oh man, I feel bad for the fans of Oakland who have to witness a possible slaughter on Monday Night.
I think after this game we should rename Peyton Manning, Jason Voorhees. I have a feeling he’s going to treat this Raiders defense like camp counselors from the first to last whistle of the game. If he threw seven touchdown passes against the defending champions, how many do you think he could throw against the Oakland Raiders?
Right now Peyton has an incredible total of 769 passing yards and nine touchdowns with ZERO interceptions. Ontop of that, he’s only been sacked three times in the last two weeks. So if he continues to get the protection he needs, he’ll end up throwing more than seven against Oakland. Wouldn’t that be coconuts?
Anyways, wide receiver Eric Decker was able to get things together as he brought in nine receptions for 87 receiving yards. He led all eight Manning targets in yards and receptions but didn’t record a touchdown. Both Wes Welker and Julius Thomas had 35+ yards receiving with both Manning’s touchdowns.
This defense picked off Peyton’s little brother four times in this game.
Knowshon Moreno finally got things rolling as he rushed for 93 yards on 13 carries and two touchdowns as the rookie Monte Ball continues to struggle early on.
Peyton finished the game 30 for 42 with 307 yards passing and two touchdowns. Still putting up perfect numbers.
Now let’s talk about the possible victims on Monday. Oakland picked up a 19-9 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars, so watch out Denver.
All jokes aside, Pryor wasn’t really able to get anything major done except for getting Janikowski in field goal range. But let’s face it, the man could probably hit a 75 yard field goal.
McFadden rushed for 129 yards on 19 carries as he had more yards than his quarterback had passing yards.
Pryor picked up 50 yards with his legs on nine carries and went 15 for 24 for 126 passing yards.
Oakland’s only touchdown came from running back Marcel Reece.
What a game to close out Week 3.
