Raiders 2nd Half Flop Against Broncos

*Opening ceremony American Flag & Jets Fly Over
*Raiders 17-7 Halftime Lead over Broncos
*Halftime Surprise Reunion on Field with Military Father & Family
*Second Half Raiders Offensive, Defensive, Special Teams Flop
*Tim Tebow & Broncos Walk Away with A 38-21 Final

With a chance to take over the AFC western division lead the Raiders failed miserably. Something is seriously broken in Oakland, besides the collar bone of QB Jason Campbell. Who knew just how much the injured starting quarterback meant to the team. Seems the Defense has also gone on an early Holiday, being out-smarted by Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos much of the day.

At this stage of the season, the Oakland Raiders might still be in a 3-way tie for first place in the division, but the way they've played these last two games against division rivals Kansas City and Denver there's no way they make the playoffs.

Granted McFadden hasn't played in the two losses, but the problem isn't necessarily a running back problem, it's a "Team" problem. Coach Hue Jackson needs to handle it quick, or find himself losing hold of this young team. The future is truly beginning to look Silver & bleak.

Halftime Surprise-

A special military family reunion was held at halftime, a father returned from 10 months of military service in Afghanistan. The reunion was disguised as a field goal kicking challenge and the soldier was in a Raiders uniform complete with a helmet with a dark shield to hide his identity. The reunion will be featured on an upcoming episode of Lifetime’s Coming Home.
