Broncos Sixth Drive --

--Broncos get the ball first, and some how Brandon Marshall needs to ball in his hands more.
--They try, and luckily Marshall can pick up two yards...
--Another incompletion by Cutler who is really out of whack now...
--The way this team is playing simply makes me sick....period...
--The necessary INT by Cutler comes in the 3rd quarter this week and the Raiders are set up to score again...

Raiders Sixth Drive --

--The defense comes up with two solid plays, knowing they cannot give up another TD...
--Porter makes a solid catch, but the Raiders will be forced to try a field goal...It's good...
--Raiders 17 - Broncos 7

Broncos Seventh Drive --

--Turnovers by the Broncos on back-to-back possessions has lead to 10 Raider points....
--The special teams for the Broncos is once again pathetic...
--The Broncos offense is running the option, down 10, on the road, in the 3rd quarter...Sad...
--Like we have seen a few times this season, the Broncos are getting physically beaten....
--Another fumble, another turnover and the Raiders are looking to blwo this one wide open...
--Why...WHY IS TRAVIS HENRY IN THE GAME???

Raiders Seventh Drive --

--All that progress the offense was making the past few weeks?? Forget about it...
--Remember how good the Broncos DB's were supposed to be?? Forget about it...
--
RAIDERS 24 - Broncos 7

Broncos Eighth Drive --

--Nothing the Broncos can do now but try and get something accomplished, just to see of there are any men in the locker room that we want back next year...
--There's a big play, play-action fake and deep to Stokely, who makes the catch and has the Broncos inside the 15 ayrd line...
--A couple runs by Henry brings up a 3rd and 3 from the 6. This has to be 4 down territory...
--A false start....why not?
--The Raiders come after, and get to Cutler, and now the Broncos will have to kick the field goal. Just nothing good happening for the Broncos...
--Raiders 24 - Broncos 10

Raiders Eighth Drive --

--It be nice if the Broncos could come up with a turnover right now...
--More solid special teams coverage has the Raiders out to the 40 yard line...
--How did the Broncos not come up with that fumble???
--Nothing going for the Broncos defense, who are simply being put into an unfair position trying to be the strength of this team. The Broncos are in a state of total chaos right now...
--116 yards for Fargas in 2 1/2 quarters...
--Solid hit by Ian Gold keeps the Raiders from another first down and forces another field goal try...
--It's NO GOOD -- The Broncos still have a glimmer of hope, down 14...

Broncos Ninth Drive --

--What a rope that was, about 40 yards on a laser beam and the Broncos are across mid-field...
--Just like that Cutler is back in a rhythem...An incredible throw to Scheffler has the Broncos in scoring position again...
--Henry nearly fumbled again, but as it is he gains 5 yards...
--Another meaningless play to Cecil Sapp.....Wasted plays over and over...
--The Broncos woes on third down continue, as Cutler gets sacked and the Broncos will have to try another field goal...
--Raiders 24 - Broncos 13

Raiders Ninth Drive --

--Another piss-poor job by the Broncos in kick-coverage...
--Raiders will try and eat some clock...
--There's the turnover the Broncos needed, and just like that the Broncos have the ball with great field position...

Broncos Tenth Drive --

--The final play of the third quarter is a Cutler scramble for 2-yards. The Broncos have a chance....

END OF THIRD QUARTER -- RAIDERS 24 - BRONCOS 13
