Running Backs: C

Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos


Darren McFadden was mostly quiet in his return, though he did have a 36-yard run.

Receivers: B

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.
