Seabass just tied an NFL record. Back with more soon.
Denver’s offense is out of sorts.
It really can’t get anything going either by the pass or the run. Denver has 140 yards of offense at halftime.
The Raiders’ offense hasn't done much either against an improved Denver defense. But the Raiders have taken advantage of a turnover and a blocked punt for a lead that could be too much for Denver to overcome if its offense doesn’t get into gear.
Both teams have bee undisciplined. Denver has been penalized eight times for 71 yards and Oakland has been flagged eight times for 55 yards.
The rain storm that hit earlier in the game has calmed down.
Denver safety Brian Dawkins may be 37, but he can still deliver the wood. He had two huge hits Monday night. Dawkins is being used mostly in run situations.
Denver defensive end Elvis Dumervil is only playing on passing downs. He injured his shoulder and the team is using him in situations where he is most valuable.
Oakland used a Wildcat play with Darren McFadden getting the direct snap. He pitched to Jacoby Ford. It was snuffed out for a three-yard loss. But that’s a lot of speed for Oakland in the backfield. It will use the formation again.
