"I just feel we never really stayed in sync on offense," McFadden said.
Palmer was sacked three times, but the Raiders couldn't get to Manning before or after center J.D. Walton hurt his left ankle and was replaced by veteran Dan Koppen in the second quarter.
The referees were no factor. They called nine penalties, five for 41 yards against the newly disciplined Raiders. The Broncos had amassed more than $150,000 in fines over the first three weeks and, though there weren't any obviously finable infractions in this one, they played like bullies, outgaining the Raiders 503-237.
Manning agreed it helped having the regular officials back to keep the game moving quickly.
"Yeah, sure. I guess so," he said. "I want to keep it kind. It was good to have them back. I think there are still some things they could do better. I don't want to inflate their egos."
NOTES: The Raiders have allowed more points over the first four games (125) than in any year except 1961 and 1962, before the late Al Davis took over. ... Even with a 2-yard punt, Raiders P Shane Lechler averaged 49.4 yards on seven kicks. ... This game was just the eighth in NFL history in which a team won by 30 or more points without the benefit of a takeaway. ... The Broncos have just one home game between now and Nov. 18 with four road games and a bye in that span.
