Raiders Vs. Broncos Update: Kyle Orton Passes And Passes But Comes Up With No Points

The Denver Broncos don't look all that much improved from last season's lousy performances. It's still early, but we're seeing the Broncos shy away from the running game and throwing on each down. On this lastest drive, which resulted in a Matt Prater missing a 56-yard field goal, the offense was frustrated by penalties and also rewarded by them.

Rookie tight end Julius Thomas has a 12-yard gain, but a holding call on center J.D. Walton brought it back. But two penalties and two receptions by Brandon Lloyd put the Broncos in Raiders territory. However, Kyle Orton missed on three straight passes to Eddie Royal, Eric Decker and Lloyd. Prater then sliced the field goal attempt, keeping the score at 10-3 in favor of the Raiders.

Willis McGahee had a loss of three yards on the first play of the drive and then there were no more runs after that. Denver has just 17 rushing yards.
