Peyton Manning, Raiders Penalties Sink Oakland Against Indianaplis

Somehow the Oakland Raiders offense has scored 12 points (and seven off a Jacoby Ford kickoff touchdown return), although their overall numbers on the game are particularly lackluster. The Raiders have only 10 first downs on the game, and just TWO in the second half. Still, those two first downs were enough to set up two Sebastian Janikowski field goals, thanks to good defense by the Raiders. A Chris Johnson interception set up one field goal, good field position after solid Raiders defense set up the other one.

But the Raiders just haven’t been able to stop Peyton Manning and keep themselves from making mistakes. Another costly defensive pass interference penalty, this one by Stanford Routt handed the Colts 31 free yards and a first down inside the red zone. Manning threw a short touchdown to Blair White to make it 24-16. After Manning threw the interception to Johnson that set up the fourth Janikowski field goal, he redeemed himself with a 9 play, five minute, 68 yard drive, converting two third down throws to Jacob Tamme and Pierre Garcon to put Indianapolis in command, up 31-19. The Raiders would score a late touchdown, but Tamme recovered the onside kick and the Colts bled out the clock.

Manning would finish the game with a modest 16 for 30 for 179 yards, 3 touchdown, 2 interception effort, but it was enough. The Raiders committed 10 penalties for 116 yards, as they fell to 7-8 on the season.
