Broncos defense stifles Derek Carr-less Raiders


The Denver Broncos’ defense put on another stellar performance in a 16-10 win over division-rival Oakland. Here’s what we learned…

1. The Derek Carr injury will obviously set the tone for this week in Oakland. The Raiders made a slight upgrade at backup quarterback this offseason, swapping Matt McGloin with former Bills first-round pick E.J. Manuel, but will be crossing their fingers for good news from any follow-up testing Carr will undergo this week. Jack Del Rio did quell some concerns, telling reporters Carr suffered back spasms and doesn’t believe it will a long-term issue. After watching Carr go down with a broken leg on Christmas Eve last year, the sight of him getting up gingerly and walking to the sidelines had to be nerve-wracking. Back injuries are fickle, but the Raiders were obviously interested in playing this one safe with 75 percent of the season ahead of them.


2. Del Rio went wild on Sunday, and he’ll certainly get beat up for it. But … not here. Was faking a punt with 2:32 to go in the third quarter at your own 33-yard line
