Oakland Raiders Fans Chant "F*ck AB" During Monday Night Home Opener

Before the game started, Ferrell and Crosby ran to the Black Hole to fire up the fans and kept that same energy on the field. But a freaky foot injury, fight with the National Football League over his helmet, skipped practices, multiple fines, a run-in with general manager Mike Mayock and odd social media posts ultimately led to the decision to release the game's most prolific receiver two days before the opener.

"It's just the first game man", cornerback Chris Harris Jr. said.

It was the Raiders' first game since the weird departure of superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown, who after joining the team in the offseason ran his own way out of town before ever taking a snap in Oakland.

Brown agreed to a deal with New England just hours after being granted his wish to be released by Oakland on Saturday and the Raiders wasted little time proving they had moved on. Catching six of seven targets for 105 yards with a score, Williams' play spoke volumes. The veteran quarterback entering a crucial year for his future finished the night going 22-of-26 for 259 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions.

"They were throwing the ball quick", Miller said, "but we have to find a way to get there".

Not-so special teams: The Broncos gave up a late 72-yard kick return to Dwayne Harris, who burned them for a 99-yard punt return TD in December.

Bringing down Joe Flacco twice on Monday night, defensive end Benson Mayowa became the first Raiders defensive player with two sacks in a single game since Khalil Mack during Week 15 of the 2017 season. WR Tim Patrick sustained a broken left hand and will miss at least a month.

"He played good against the run", Gruden said.

Fangio doesn't figure he has any inherent advantages Sunday when his old team, the Bears, visit Denver.
