The book on Carson Palmer never changes: some really nice throws and at least one crushing interception.
Running Backs: C
Darren McFadden was mostly quiet in his return, though he did have a 36-yard run.
Darrius Heyward-Bey had a 56-yard catch-and-run TD, and Rod Streater recorded his first 100-yard game.
Offensive Line: D
Pressure on Palmer was not Oakland's problem in this game. The holding calls were another matter.
Defensive Line: C
Sacks for Desmond Bryant and Lamarr Houston. Pressure was inconsistent.
Philip Wheeler had 10 tackles, but the unit didn't make many big plays.
Defensive Backs: C
Michael Huff had a terrible game before he got hurt. Phillip Adams had a key interception.
Special Teams: C
Mike Goodson’s bad decision to return a kickoff out of the end zone helped set up a Denver scoring opportunity.
Miles separate these two teams.
