DENVER (AP) - Behind Darren McFadden's 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 would start at quarterback despite a sore knee in place of Bruce Gradkowski (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.
