While the talent disparity between the Eagles

1. With Michael Crabtree (ejection) and Amari Cooper (concussion) sidelined in the first half, Oakland had to rely on a shorthanded receiving corps and its running game, paced by Marshawn Lynch, to salt this one away. Beast Mode's numbers weren't pretty -- he toted the ball a season-high 26 times for 67 yards -- but his grinding gains came at opportune moments and wore down Denver's front over time, Stephon Tuitt Youth Jersey putting the Raiders ahead by 21 heading into the fourth quarter. But after the Broncos pulled within one score late in the fourth, Lynch was stuffed on two runs, forcing Oakland to air it out. Off of his back foot on third-and-8 in the shadow of his own goalpost, Derek Carr lobbed a parabola to Cordarrelle Patterson, who reeled it in for the first down over backup corner Brendan Langley and then broke Langley's "tackle" for a 55-yard gain. If Oakland is to make a run at the postseason or the AFC West -- the Raiders and Chargers are now within one game of Kansas City -- the Raiders will need more gutty performances like this one. Matchups with the lifeless Giants and the struggling Chiefs loom.

2. Denver's quarterback situation is devolving into an absolute quagmire. The Broncos started Paxton Lynch this week after originally benching Trevor Siemian for Brock Osweiler, and then shelving Osweiler after three starts for their second-year project. Unfortunately for the Broncos' front office hoping for a respite from poor QB play, Lynch was wholly ineffective in his third career start, T. J. Watt Youth Jersey his first since Week 12 of 2016, and exited with an ankle injury in the third quarter. Siemian entered the game, leading two touchdown drives, but the damage was done. Lynch was inaccurate all afternoon, settling for short gains and taking sacks instead of testing Oakland deep. Terry Bradshaw Youth Jersey When he did take a chance, it backfired. Lynch's first-half red-zone interception, thrown into triple coverage and landing in the lap of NaVorro Bowman for Oakland's first INT (!) of the season, changed the momentum of the entire game. At 3-8, Denver's season is all but over, and there are serious questions at the QB position, where John Elway has employed three backups and not a single signal-caller of the future. Suddenly, in a wide-open AFC West, the Broncos are the odd team out.

3. The trajectory of this one turned early on a skirmish between Aqib Talib and Michael Crabtree. After Talib successfully snatched Crabtree's necklace early in the first quarter -- the second time the corner had literally yanked Crab's chain in a calendar year -- both threw punches at each other and were ejected from the game. Denver lost its feistiest corner, and Oakland, Troy Polamalu Youth Jersey its most reliable receiver -- Crabtree didn't even return to the sideline, watching the rest of the game from a Coliseum box, Beast Mode-style. Talib's loss ultimately hurt the Broncos more as the aforementioned Langley, thrust into duty, was beaten on two of the game's most decisive pass plays (a Cooper TD haul and the Patterson third-down conversion). With Crabtree out, the Raiders reaped good showings from Patterson and Johnny Holton (five receptions, 125 yards combined).
