After taking a hit in the fourth quarter of Sunday's Raiders loss to the Broncos, Carr was diagnosed with a transverse process fracture in his back Monday. Not only that, he threw the ball at an opponent after the play and was tagged with a 15-yard unsportsmanlike penalty.

The reason is he has a transverse process fracture.

Manuel's performance was such a turnaround from Carr's Sunday that it had some Raiders fans questioning if Del Rio should have swapped QBs earlier. "But unfortunately, it couldn't put us over the hump". He could be fined by the league for the taunting foul and figures to be on the receiving end of a stern talking to from his head coach.

"I just got off the phone with him; he said he's sorry", Del Rio said Monday. Luckily, Denver's defense came through in the last two minutes with a big turnover to seal the victory for Denver, 16-10.

Oakland couldn't do much against Denver's fortified front seven that has stuffed Melvin Gordon, Ezekiel Elliott and LeSean McCoy.

"Our run defense has been stout the entire year", Broncos coach Vance Joseph said. The Ravens, also 2-2, don't seem to be a very good team.

Trump's plan would cut the number of tax brackets from seven to three, with tax rates of 12 percent, 25 percent and 35 percent. Democratic lawmakers in Congress continued to criticize the plan on Friday, which they have described a giveaway to the rich.

Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch wore a shirt that read "EVERYBODY VS TRUMP" as he arrived at his team's game Sunday. The last time EJ Manuel stepped into a regular-season game was New Year's Day, and he was wearing a Buffalo Bills uniform, as he had for the rest of the first four seasons of his career. "If you're number is called, you've got to step up. So that is a big-time play by J", said cornerback Aqib Talib. This injury will keep him sidelined for the next month or so. The problem came in the group's struggle to slow the run - C.J. Anderson's 95 yards on 20 carries was supplanted by 33 on five totes.

As we wrote following the game yesterday, we hate seeing players get injured, and this couldn't have happened to a classier player in Carr, who signed a massive extension this offseason. We'll fix that. But the concepts are there, and running the football is there.

"I knew coming into everything I was going to have to make an impact on special teams and that's what I was trying to go do, " Taylor said. "She loves her team".

The Broncos started the season converting 7 of 9 red zone opportunities into touchdowns.

"We're hurting ourselves down there", Siemian said. In 25 offensive possessions in 2014 and '15 at Sports Authority Field at Mile High, the Raiders punted 19 times, scored three touchdowns, turned it over twice and missed a field goal. "That part of our offense we have to fix quickly".

The Broncos offense goes through Thomas and Sanders, who have now been the lead dogs through three different quarterback regimes with the team. Baltimore's usually strong defense is ranked 21st, one spot below the Raiders.
