Raiders 20, Broncos 19

JaMarcus Russell returned to the Oakland Raiders' lineup in time to hurt the Denver Broncos' playoff hopes.

Russell threw a 10-yard touchdown pass to Chaz Schilens with 35 seconds left for a 20-19 scrum-filled win over the Broncos on Sunday.

Russell was benched a month ago and passed by Charlie Frye on the depth chart this week.

The former No. 1 overall draft pick entered when Frye was knocked out of the game early in the fourth quarter by a blow to the head from linebacker Andra Davis. He went 5-of-11 for 47 yards.

The Broncos (8-6) are still in the AFC wild-card hunt but they were expecting a win over Oakland (5-9), who won at Invesco Field for the second straight season.

    I Bleed Bronco Blue and Orange and yesterdays performance was sickening, to give up that many yards on the ground and to not being able to score from the 2 yard line twice...It just stings more because who we lost to. All I can say Let’s Go Broncos and finish strong.
