Not sure how much more you can dominate a half, but this is the Raiders we're talking about. The only way the Raiders score is on a questionable tip play on a wide receiver screen that was ruled a lateral on the field.

Manning has completed 15-22 for 199 yards and is picking one of the Raiders' reserve corners. CJ Anderson leads all rushers with 27 yards on 8 carries to go along with two redzone touchdown runs. Ronnie Hillman also has 28 yards on 7 carries.

On the other end of the spectrum, Derek Carr has just 34 yards passing to go along with 25 more on the ground between Murray and McFadden.

Demaryius Thomas broke Rod Smith's franchise record of 1602 receiving yards (2000). Emmanuel Sanders is 30 yards an 1 touchdown away from joining the 100 catch, 1400 yard, 10 touchdown club.

Peyton Manning is one touchdown away from 40 on the season.

Defense has been absolutely stifling forcing three and out after three and out. Connor Barth nailed a 49 yarder and has converted 12/13 on the season so far.

Use this 2nd half thread to countdown to the beginning of the postseason.
