Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders 11/6/11

Coming off a bye week and hosting Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos, the Raiders entered Sunday's game confident that they could get back to winning games. But Tebow, Eric Decker, and Willis McGahee had other ideas, and when the Raiders couldn't stop taking penalties, the Broncos ran away with the game. I continued my season-long mission to make pictures of Raiders fans in costume and/or carrying signs:

I've never been sure what wrestling has to do with the Raiders (or how you can be a fan of both Hulk Hogan and Rowdy Roddy Piper), but this guy is at every game:

Hue Jackson has quasi-filled the power vacuum created by the death of Raiders owner Al Davis, getting his way on trading big draft picks for Carson Palmer. If the Raiders can't turn it around, they're both going to be in trouble:

Denarius Moore continues to play well:

I dropped the shutter down to 1/40th to get the opening kickoff:

The Raiders defense had Tebow on the run for most of the game, constantly either rushing him or knocking him to the ground:

Tebow managed to stay in the game, and ran directly into some beautiful light reflected off of the private suite windows:

Jacoby Ford was largely contained, but broke off a nice long run after catching a pass:

Denarius Moore risked a fumble reaching the ball out away from his body:

Michael Bush picked up a lot of yards filling in for Darren McFadden, here diving in for a score:

Fullback Marcel Reece caught a perfect pass from Palmer and then fought his way into the end zone for a score:

Moore and Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey go up for a pass that would be intercepted by Bailey:

This would have been a nice catch, but Raiders cornerback DeMarcus Van Dyke was called for pass interference:

Broncos punter Britton Colquitt couldn't handle a snap, and was lucky to throw the ball away without taking a safety:

If you've ever seen the David Lynch movie Blue Velvet, you will know why I made about 40 frames of Willis McGahee taking oxygen on the sidelines:

The Raiders have to travel to San Diego for a Thursday night game vs the Chargers.
