Team Notes

The Raiders fell to the Denver Broncos, 26-13, at O.co Coliseum on Thursday.

The contest marked the first Thursday home game for the Silver and Black since Oct. 25, 1979.

The Raiders held the Broncos to two touchdowns on seven red-zone trips (29 percent). The Broncos entered the game tied for fourth in the NFL in red-zone offense at 61.4 percent.

The Raiders had a 10-play, 90-yard touchdown drive in the second quarter that lasted 6:33, the longest drive by the Silver and Black this season.

The drive was the third of 90-or-more yards this season, following a 93-yard drive on Nov. 11, vs. New Orleans, and a 92-yard drive on Sept. 16, at Miami.

Oakland’s defense tied a season high with three sacks. The total also tied for the most against the Broncos in a game this season.

The Raiders scored a touchdown with 1:59 remaining in the second quarter, the 10th time this season that Oakland has scored within the final two minutes of the first half. The Raiders scored within the final two minutes of the first half in nine straight games before having the streak snapped on Nov. 18, vs. New Orleans.

The Raiders fell to 7-8 all-time in games played on Thursdays.

 

Individual Notes

QB Carson Palmer completed 19-of-30 attempts for 273 yards, moving into 10th place on Oakland’s all-time list with 6,455 passing yards in a Raider uniform.

Palmer had two touchdown passes, marking the sixth time in the last seven games that he has recorded multiple scoring tosses.

Palmer notched a quarterback rating of 100-or-more for the third time this season, posting a 101.1 rating.

WR Rod Streater produced his first career 100-yard receiving game, recording four catches for 100 yards. He is the third different Raider to post a 100-yard receiving game this season, and the first rookie to do so since WR Denarius Moore totaled 101 yards in the 2011 season finale.

Streater hauled in a 58-yard pass from Palmer, recording his second long reception in as many games. He posted a 64-yard touchdown catch on Dec. 2, vs. Cleveland.

Streater’s reception is tied for the fifth-longest play from scrimmage by the Raiders this season.

WR Darrius Heyward-Bey had a 56-yard catch-and-run touchdown in the fourth quarter, marking his longest reception of the season. His previous season high was a 55-yard touchdown catch on Nov. 11, at Baltimore.

Heyward-Bey tied a season high with five receptions for 82 yards.

WR Denarius Moore hauled in four passes 43 yards, the eighth time this season that he has totaled four-or-more catches.

RB Darren McFadden scored a touchdown on a 6-yard reception, marking his first receiving score of the season and his first since Oct. 16, 2011, vs. Cleveland. McFadden has five career receiving touchdowns.

McFadden broke off a 36-yard run on the Raiders’ first drive of the second half, his longest run since a 64-yard touchdown scamper on Sept. 23, vs. Pittsburgh.

McFadden returned to action after missing five games due to an ankle injury. He played for the first time since Nov. 4, vs. Tampa Bay.

McFadden rushed for 52 yards, bringing his career total to 3,134 and moving him ahead of No. 11 Harvey Williams (3,094, 1994-98) on the franchise’s career list.

DB Phillip Adams picked off a Peyton Manning pass in the second quarter, giving Adams an interception in two straight games. It is the first time a Raider has recorded an interception in consecutive games since S Matt Giordano had picks in the final two games of the 2011 season.

Adams was credited with two passes defensed, marking a career high for the third-year player.

DE Lamarr Houston posted a sack for the second straight game, getting to QB Peyton Manning on a third-and-8 play and forcing Denver to settle for a field goal. It was Houston’s third sack of the season.

DT Desmond Bryant notched his first sack of the season, dropping Manning in the second quarter. Bryant’s sack forced the Broncos to settle for a field goal and marked his first sack since Dec. 11, 2011, at Green Bay.

S Mike Mitchell got to Manning for a sack in the second quarter, his first since Oct. 2, 2011, vs. New England.

Mitchell’s sack was the first by a Raider defensive back this season.

TE Brandon Myers recorded a reception for the 14th straight game, a stretch that dates back to the 2011 season finale.

Myers’ team-leading 70 catches are the most by a Raider tight end since Todd Christensen’s 95 receptions in 1986, and the most by a Raider since WR Jerry Porter hauled in 76 passes in 2005.

K Sebastian Janikowski converted a second-quarter PAT, extending his streak of consecutive successful PATs to 123.

WR Juron Criner had a season-long 17-yard reception in the fourth quarter. Criner has 14 catches over the past five games.

P Shane Lechler punted five times, increasing his career punts total to 999.

Lechler placed three punts inside the 20-yard line, tying a season high that he set on Nov. 25, at Cincinnati.

Inactive for the game were WR Derek Hagan, RB Jeremy Stewart, FB/RB Jamize Olawale, OL Lucas Nix, T Willie Smith, DE Jack Crawford and DT Richard Seymour.
