ENVER (AP) �" Behind Darren McFadden's (FSY) four touchdowns, the Oakland Raiders scored the most points in their 50-year history Sunday with a 59-14 thrashing of the demoralized Denver Broncos.

The Raiders (3-4) won for the third straight time at Invesco Field, fueled by a 38-point outburst in the first 22 minutes, including touchdowns 8 seconds apart to kick-start the rout that recalled so many of the lopsided scores between these former AFL teams in the 1960s.

The Raiders kept the Broncos (2-5) guessing until announcing shortly before kickoff that backup Jason Campbell (FSY) would start at quarterback despite a sore knee in place of Bruce Gradkowski (FSY) (sore shoulder).

It didn't seem to bother him one bit, and McFadden certainly showed no ill effects of a recent hamstring injury in scoring on a pair of 4-yard runs and a 19-yard reception in the first half and on a 57-yard run in the second. ... ncos_N.htm

Wow. I couldn't believe it. It was 24-0 in the first, 38-7 at the half and 59-14 after 3 quarters. Unbelievable. We broke a franchise record and who better to do it against!

I watched the whole game, and it was absolutely great hearing the play-by-play guys talking about the Raiders being contenders and making noise this year. This win was nearly a decade in the making.

So happy to be a Raiders fan right now. As it stands, we're 3-4 and going home to take on Seattle. Lets do it!

Amazing win. Darren McFadden- what a weapon. The offense was definitely clicking on all cylinders. 4 and 4 is certainly a distinct possibility now!

115 points in the last 3 games. Now all we need is another Quarterback controversy after winning 3 in a row with Campbell.
