OAKLAND -- Quick thoughts midway through the third quarter:
The Denver defense looks much improved. It is controlling this game so far.
The Raiders must get tight end Zach Miller more involved in the offense. He can help bail out Russell.
The Raiders are supposed to have one of the best secondaries in the league. It hasn't shown up to tonight as Cutler is ripping them apart and the Broncos lead 24-0.
