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

Getty									A week of antics led to the Raiders releasing Antonio Brown

Joe Flacco threw for 268 yards and a touchdown, but was sacked three times in defeat.

"It really wasn't (a distraction)", Gruden said. Hats off to the Raiders, they outplayed us today. "They scored touchdowns and we didn't".

Team captain, Derek Carr was on fire last night, finishing 22-of-26 for 259 yards, one TD and is now only 81 yards from being the Raiders all-time passing leader. Both Raiders and Broncos players looked on in shock. The Raiders used a combination of a pounding run game and timely passing attack to keep the Denver defense off-kilter. "We didn't make the plays down there, that's for sure". As Abram whipped around his leg nailed Conley on the top of the helmet. But Flacco was running a new system installed by first-time offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello after coming over from Baltimore. "He's not drawing from a lot of experience", Gruden said. It's over. You know? Let's look at the winners and losers from Week 1. The Raiders found the end zone twice in the first half.

Broncos: RT Ja'Wuan James left the game in the first half with a knee injury.

Ideal in the preseason, McManus kicked three field goals and came within inches of tying Matt Prater's National Football League record-long 64-yarder set in 2013.

Even with all their struggles, the Broncos did have a chance to snatch momentum in the third quarter.

For the second consecutive season, the Raiders held their season-opening opponents to fewer than 100 yards of offense in the first half. He got things started with a huge reception on a crossing route from Flacco that was reminiscent of Demaryius Thomas' game-winning overtime touchdown in the playoffs.

"You know, we gave it a shot", Gruden said to NBC Sports Bay Area. "I had no question that we were going to be able to come out here and do what we did tonight". Additionally, he displayed hands and explosion on a 28-yard catch and run.

"Should have made certain plays when the ball was supposed to be going to me and I kept slipping in the damn grass", Sanders said.
