NFL Week Four Match Up: Raiders at Broncos

Adjust Comment Print

Denver Broncos safety Darian Stewart and the rest of the Broncos defense held the Oakland Raiders to a mere 10 points on Sunday.

But, Derby was just getting started.

"Obviously, growing up you always work on one-handed catches. Didn't think anything different".

"That was a pretty good catch", Siemian said of the 29-yard TD catch that was much more than pretty good. I thought we did some things to get in position to win the game.

"I felt like it was three fingers", on the ball, Derby said. While Siemian was not spectacular against Oakland, he did a good job of protecting the ball. "Not too good", he said.

Broncos defensive end Derek Wolfe sacked Oakland Raiders' quarterback Derek Carr for an 8-yard loss.

The Denver Broncos are no strangers to drama at the end of football games, so it shouldn't have come as a surprise that it took a insane play by Justin Simmons to seal a week four win against the Oakland Raiders. He's a talent. I'm not down on him. "That's something that I can fix". Whether Manuel gives the Raiders a better chance, and how long Oakland may be without Carr, who signed a record contract extension this offseason, remains to be seen.

LONG TIME COMING: The Broncos looked like they were in prime shape late in the first half when Bennie Fowler downed a punt at the Oakland 1, but Carr instead produced Oakland's first 99-yard touchdown drive since October 2, 2011, against New England.

In a game against a tough Denver defense that is among the best in the NFL, Lynch will need to take pressure off of Carr and the rest of the Raiders' offense. He was concussed this preseason but didn't miss a game, and suffered another head injury.

Tavecchio continued his flawless season, making his lone extra point as well as his only field goal attempt.

Broncos' Justin Simmons, right, celebrates making an interception late in the fourth quarter against the Oakland Raiders at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday in Denver.

"We're going against guys who have been to Pro Bowls and we're shutting them down", Broncos nose tackle Domata Peko Sr. said.

ABOUT THE BRONCOS (2-1): Despite last week's effort, Anderson ranks fifth in the league with 235 rushing yards and is averaging 4.4 per carry. "It's the whole team and this defense is playing great". He then drove the Raiders into Broncos territory again, only for his interception to put a sour end to his brief outing. Last season, the Broncos were minus-2 in turnovers in a 30-20 loss to the Raiders in November and plus-2 in the win over the Raiders in the season finale. Wide receiver Amari Cooper dropped so many passes he should have a priest burn the gloves he was wearing.
