Raiders beat Broncos in 1st game after Antonio Brown's release

Raiders beat Broncos in 1st game after Antonio Brown's release

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr enjoyed a huge night in Week 1 against the Broncos. With the team moving to Las Vegas next year, the game was the last "Monday Night Football" broadcast that will be held in Oakland. Before the game started, Ferrell and Crosby ran to the Black Hole to fire up the fans and kept that same energy on the field. We were fine without him.

"It's just the first game man", cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said. "Killed us on third down in the first half".

Brown agreed to a offer with New England just several hours immediately after getting granted his want to be released by Oakland on Saturday and the Raiders squandered tiny time proving they had moved on. Wiliams had six catches for 105 yards, including a game-sealing 10-yard catch on third down after the two-minute warning.

Carr was an efficient 22-of-26 for 259 yards, a touchdown, and he threw no picks and was not sacked.

"They were throwing the ball quick", Miller said, "but we have to find a way to get there". Sanders had five catches for 86 yards in his return from a torn Achilles tendon.

"I'm never going to bring it up again", said Gruden of Antonio Brown, via NBC Sports Bay Area. WR Tim Patrick left in the second half with a hand injury.

105.3 - Flacco's passer rating, the highest by a Broncos QB since Trevor Siemian's 107.7 mark against Oakland on November 26, 2017.

Just after recording an NFL-small 13 sacks very a year ago following the trade of Khalil Mack, the Raiders got off to a considerably superior start out this 12 months with the pass rush, sacking Flacco 3 times. Fangio spent the past four seasons as defensive co-ordinator for the Bears.
