Raiders embarrassed on Manning's historic day
Early and often
The Raiders opened the game with a prompt three-and-out. Following that drive, Denver meticulously drove down the field, ending a 12-play drive with a three yard touchdown pass to Eric Decker.
Pryor fumbles, Manning strikes
On the first play of their second drive, Terrelle Pryor fumbled the snap and the ball was recovered by Denver at the Oakland 21. Peyton Manning made quick work of scoring again, cashing in with a seven yard touchdown pass to Knowshon Moreno.
Prater ties record with FG
After another stalled Raiders drive, Denver moved once again into scoring position. Matt Prater kicked a 34-yard field goal that tied the record for most team total points in a season.
Oakland sputters, Denver breaks record
Oakland appeared to put together a solid drive as they moved close to Denver territory. The drive sputtered, however, and the Raiders punted. Manning then struck again, turning a third and short into a 63-yard touchdown pass to Demarius Thomas that broke the single-season team scoring record and put Denver up 24-0.
Peyton makes history
Manning took over to toss another touchdown to Thomas. On the five-yard pass he surpassed Drew Brees for most passing yards in a single season. The score made the halftime deficit the worst for the Raiders since trailing 31-0 at Green Bay on 12/11/11. Manning ended the half 25-for-28 with 266 yards and four touchdowns.
Raiders squander a chance
The Broncos pulled most of their starters to open the second half and Oakland forced a punt on Denver's first drive. The Raiders blocked the punt, and recovered at the Denver 27, but could not move the ball, and set up for a field goal. Sebastian Janikowski missed the try and the Raiders remained scoreless.
Pryor adds garbage TDs
Matt Prater added another field goal, then Terrelle Pryor got the Raiders on the board with a 14-yard pass to Rod Streater and a nine-yard pass to Nick Kasa. The scores brought the lead to 34-14, which would be the final. With their sixth straight loss, and eighth of nine, the Raiders cemented themselves as the fifth slot in the 2014 NFL Draft.
