I did not watch yesterday's Thursday Night Football game, but I'm going to just make some educated guess about what happened and proceed as though I did, in fact, watch it. Hey guys, did you happen to see the Oakland Raiders get totally destroyed by Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos?
Seriously, I don't understand why they even play Manning after the first half when they're up. I'm also legitimately shocked at how bad the Raiders are this season. If you're wondering why I'm not really talking about the Miami Dolphins ... well, it's because I haven't watched the Dolphins once this season and it wouldn't make sense for me to talk about it.
Anyway, quick links and such. Enjoy.
