Raiders Second Drive cont....

--A third and 10 upcoming for the Raiders as we open the second quarter...
--Great job by the Broncos defense this time, and the Raiders are forced to punt...

Broncos Second Drive --

--Lechler is on of the best in the game. He proves it once again with a 63 yard punt...
--Selvin Young will reportedly be back in the game at some point...
--Scheffler took a bad angle to that pass, but the coverage was good...Sapp was wide-open on that one but Cutler tried to go down field...
--The Broncos follow the Raiders in going three and out.

Raiders Third Drive --

--Solid punt by Sauerbrun, and JaMarcus Russell Will Enter the game for the Raiders...
--I wasn't the high on Russell coming out of LSU, we're about to find out if I am right...
--Russell's first pass is a completion and his era as a Raider begins...
--Penalty, looks to be a false start...Actually a motion penalty and Russell will face his first 3rd down..
--Lynch just got drilled in the back...no call, and the Raiders pick up a first down.
--The Raiders have found something now with Fargas. The excitement of seeing Russell for the first time has given the Raiders a spark...
--Broncos defense starting to come after Russell now, and Dumervil gets the tip. Big 3rd and 10 coming up...
--Another fumble will force a field goal attempt...
--58 frickin' yard attempt coming up....No Good, and the Broncos have great field position...

Broncos Third Drive --

--Nothing going on first down...
--Broncos have great field position but cannot take advantage, going three and out from mid-field...

Raiders Fourth Drive --

--Russell returns for his second drive....
--The Broncos are dropping, while the Raiders are throwing short. Denver needs to force the action, not sit and wait...
--Raiders pick up another first down on the ground...
--Typical of a rookie, for every good throw is a bad throw for Russell...
--Things are really easy for a QB when the defender falls down...This time Bly can't keep his feet, and the Raiders are inside the 35...
--Broncos get pressure on Russell and D.J. Williams does a good job keeping him from getting big yardage...
--False Start will turn a 3rd and 3 into a 3rd and 8
--Big play up-coming here...
--Raiders nearly pick it up, and with a 4th and one upcoming the Raiders will go for it...
--Not a chance....Great stop by the defense and the Broncos take over at the 26 yard line...Oh, and Nate Webster's helmet came off for the 400th game in a row...

Broncos Fourth Drive --

--The first defender rarely brings Brandon Marshall down...The Broncos need to pick up a couple first downs now...
--Fumble by Travis Henry, and the Raiders take over. What a waste of 15 million dollars...

Raiders Fifth Drive --

--The Raiders get the ball back, and Josh McCown returns to a cascade of boos...
--Raiders attacking the air now, and Jerry Porter picks up a first down...
TWO MINUTE WARNING -- Raiders 7 - BRONCOS 7
--The defense has been on the field a loooong time, especially in the second quarter...
--Raiders get closer to a first down, and a touchdown here could be a back-breaker...
--Touchdown Raiders on the pass from Josh McCown to Zach Miller...Domonique Foxworth couldn't keep up with a Tight End...Awesome...RAIDERS 14 - Broncos 7

Broncos Fifth Drive --

--The Broncos have a total of 13 yards in the second quarter...Embarrassing...
--Broncos would be wise to just let the clock run out....They try, but the Raiders call timeout...Why Not??
--Broncos decide to throw....and Javon Walker has his first reception since Week 2...
--Cutler runs for a first down, and now the Broncos will call timeout...
--Cutler has lost his rhythem, and the Broncos need to let the first half end...
--Finally it will and the Broncos will head to the locker room behind...

END OF FIRST HALF -- RAIDERS 14 - BRONCOS 7
