Raiders let another one get away

Up 13-7 at the half, the Oakland Raiders allowed ten fourth quarter points while their "offense" produced little in a 17-13 loss to the Denver Broncos.

If it weren't for the defense, the Oakland Raiders would have gone without a touchdown yet again.

The Raiders produced three turnovers on defense and their only touchdown of the game came when Nnamdi Asomugha setup his offense at the Denver 15-yard line.

Oakland could not convert, however, on two Fabian Washington interceptions.

Denver used a 42-yard punt return by David Kircus to setup their first touchdown. Three plays later, Jake Plummer hit Javon Walker for a 39-yard score to tie the game at 7-7.

Sebastian Janikowski tied his own franchise record with a 55-yard field goal in the second quarter and added a 20-yard field goal before the half.

Denver took their first lead of the game in the fourth quarter with Plummer going 6-for-6 for 60 yards, capped by a one-yard toss to Kyle Johnson.

Jason Elam added a field goal at the two-minute warning to give the Broncos a 17-13 edge, converting when Andrew Walter fumbled as he was sacked.

Oakland would get the ball again with a minute and 50 seconds on the clock. But Walter fumbled the ball away on what amounted to successive offensive players, ending any chance of a comeback.

Warren Sapp has two sacks in the game to give him six on the year. It is his second multi-sack game of the year.
