The Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos game is underway on Monday Night Football, and the Raiders trail 3-0 after one quarter of action. Oakland has struggled on offense but is in position to score at the start of the second quarter.
The Broncos received the opening kickoff but then went three-and-out, giving the ball to Oakland after a punt. The Raiders' first possession went to Jacoby Ford, who caught a pass from Kyle Orton but then proceeded to fumble it. The Broncos recovered deep in Raider territory and settled for a 28-yard field goal by Matt Prater several plays later.
The Raiders and Broncos went back and forth after the early score, putting together drives but ultimately having to punt. The Raiders blocked a Broncos punt with under five minutes left in the quarter however and got the ball back with good field position.
Penalties hampered the Raiders on the following drive but Darren McFadden carried the ball deep into Broncos territory.
Quarterback Jason Campbell has 13 passing yards on three-of-four passing. McFadden, meanwhile, has 40 yards on five carries.
The Raiders will start the second quarter deep in Broncos territory and in a position to score.
