After getting beat by the Awful Kansas City Chiefs, The Oakland Raiders thought they would sleep walk through the Denver Broncos. Instead, Tim Tebow’s rushing and passing, and the great rushing game of Willis McGahee put a stop to the Raiders. Granted, the Raiders are still trying to transition with a new QuarterBack. Carson Palmer got his first start to the season as the Raiders QB and had some very crisp throws. Some Drops and some passes that he got away with from being intercepted. Palmer is still heavy footed and hasnt gotten the ryhtm in his head as when its time to flee the pocket, but that just comes with reps, I think Palmer will end up putting up good numbers for Oakland, It just takes Time.
Now onto the DMT’s (Denver McGahee Tebows) as Woody Paige calls them. That offensive output was 100% all on the coaching. John Fox and his staff finally made a game plan to use with Tebow’s strengths, which helped Tebow throw the ball down field. Even though he had 2 throws way off targets that were wide open, Tebow bounced back and threw a completion right after it. one was for a TouchDown. Tebow also rushed for 118 yards making have 3 of the top 4 rushing games all time for Broncos QBs. With the running calls and the QB sneaks and the pass plays mixed in great, allowed Tebow to play to his strengths and kept the penalty riddled Raider defense on the Field. Tebow looked like an NFL quarterback with the great coaching of Fox and staff.
Next week is the battle for the AFC west. with the Raiders playing the Chargers on Thursday and Chiefs playing host to the Broncos, could end the 3 way tie for AFC west leader. Or could just add more confusion.
John Fox will have to change things up for next week heading into Broken ArrowHead. Im sure the Chiefs wont take this week of preperation lightly as they did the Dolphins week.
