DENVER (AP) — Brandon McManus kicked a 36-yard field goal just inside the right upright with six seconds left http://www.oaklandraidersteamonline.com/hunter-renfrow-jersey , pushing the Denver Broncos to a 20-19 win over the hard-luck Oakland Raiders and denying Jon Gruden his first win as a head coach since 2008.With no timeouts and 18 seconds left, Case Keenum hit Tim Patrick for a 26-yard gain to the Oakland 18. Cornerbacks Gareon Conley and Leon Hall couldn’t tackle him inbounds and McManus came on to give the Broncos (2-0) their first lead.The Raiders (0-2) lost despite a stellar outing by Derek Carr, who completed 29 of 32 passes for 288 yards and a score four days after Gruden called him out for passing up throws to Amari Cooper in Oakland’s opener.Cooper caught 10 passes for 116 yards Sunday.The Broncos trailed 19-7 late in the third quarter before McManus hit a 39-yarder and Keenum scored on a 1-yard keeper on fourth down with 5:58 left.Denver’s defense held and the Broncos got the ball back at their 20 with 1:58 left. A holding call pushed them back 10 yards but Keenum hit Emmanuel Sanders for 21 yards and Jake Butt for 14.On second-and-10 from the Raiders 44 with 18 seconds left, Keenum found Patrick, who turned upfield but finally raced out of bounds on the Oakland sideline, setting up McManus’ game-winner.The Raiders took a 12-0 lead at halftime after holding the Broncos to just two first downs.The Broncos blew two golden opportunities. One came when linebacker Todd Davis was called for holding, negating a strip sack by Von Miller and Domata Peko‘s fumble recovery at the Oakland 20 in the first quarter.Denver’s initial first down came when Phillip Lindsay burst through the line for a 53-yard gain, but Keenum’s pass to Butt was intercepted by Rashaan Melvin at the Raiders 1.The Raiders had to settle for field goals twice after Miller blew up plays .First, he sliced through the line to dump Marshawn Lynch for a 4-yard loss from the Denver 4, and then he sacked Carr on third-and-3 from the Broncos 21. Mike Nugent‘s field goals of 26 and 46 yards gave Oakland a 6-0 lead.The Raiders made it 12-0 on Lynch’s 1-yard dive late in the second quarter but Shaq Barrett blocked the extra point.Denver’s defense was on the field for more than 20 minutes in the first half of the hottest home game in team history. It was 92 degrees at kickoff, leading to thousands of empty seats as fans stayed on the concourses for much of the first half http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/marquise-blair-jersey , watching the action on televisions.While Keenum only had five completions for 38 yards before halftime, Carr had 158 yards on 18-of-19 passing.HOT TAKEThe kickoff temperature of 92 degrees bested the old mark of 91 degrees on Sept. 19, 2010, against Seattle. To accommodate fans, the Broncos set up several hydration stations throughout the parking lots and encouraged fans to drink lots of water.INJURIESBroncos new right tackle Jared Veldheer left with a concussion in the second half.UP NEXTOakland: The Raiders visit the Miami Dolphins on Sunday.Denver: The Broncos hit the road for the first time, travelling to Baltimore to face the Ravens on Sunday before a showdown with Kansas City at home. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — John Elway might find himself in the market for a veteran backup quarterback soon, yet there’s one man who won’t be getting a call: Colin Kaepernick .“Colin had his chance to be here,” Elway said Thursday when asked if the former San Francisco 49ers QB would be an option if he decides Case Keenum’s backup isn’t already on Denver’s roster.“We offered him a contract. He didn’t take it,” Elway said. “And as I said at my deposition (in Kaepernick’s collusion lawsuit against the NFL) — and I don’t know if I’m legally able to say this — but he’s had his chance to be here. He passed.”Kaepernick declined to take a pay cut from his $11.9 million salary to facilitate a trade to the Broncos in 2016 following Peyton Manning’s retirement.Unable to get a discount from Kaepernick or a rebate from the 49ers, Elway moved up in the draft to select former Memphis QB Paxton Lynch in the first round of the draft that spring.Lynch has been a flop and this week was demoted to third string behind Chad Kelly http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/cody-barton-jersey , last year’s “Mr. Irrelevant,” who missed his rookie season while recovering from knee and wrist surgeries.Kaepernick contends he’s no longer in the NFL because he’s the one who started the protests during the national anthem that have engulfed the league ever since. At first he sat down, then later took a knee during “The Star-Spangled Banner” to highlight social injustices against minorities.Several players joined in, and President Donald Trump criticized them for disrespecting the flag and U.S. military by not standing during the anthem.Lynch was beaten out in 2016 and ’17 by seventh-round QB Trevor Siemian, who was traded to Minnesota in the offseason following Keenum’s free agent signing. Elway declared the backup job up for grabs between Lynch and Kelly.Lynch was demoted after failing to read defenses correctly and throwing for just 24 yards in seven series in Denver’s preseason opener against the Vikings.Kelly threw for 177 yards and two TDs in mop-up duty, but that was his first game in more than 640 days. And he’s had a tougher time this week while running with the second string against the Bears’ backups in joint practices at the UC Health Center .Kelly will get a long look Saturday night against Chicago as Elway determines whether he can trust him to step in and win games if necessary.What he’s looking for in a backup QB is a guy “who has the experience and the ability to come in and help you win a football game,” Elway said. “It’s a different quality because you have to be ready all the time, and mentally be ready all the time and you don’t get a chance to play all the time.“And as hard as it is to find a starter, it’s just as hard to find a guy that can back up. And so, we’re always looking for those.”If Elway doesn’t feel comfortable with Kelly as his backup, he could sign a free agent next week who isn’t in anyone’s camp or wait for final cuts on Sept. 1 for more options.“We’ll wait through this week and see what happens http://www.seattleseahawksteamonline.com/phil-haynes-jersey ,” Elway said. “I feel like we still have time.”Elway said he’s been pleased with Keenum, save for his pair of three-and-outs in the preseason opener.“I was hoping to get off to a better start than we had the first week in the preseason,” Elway said. “But it’s been a good week of practice and Case has had a good camp. So, hopefully we dig in a little bit more this week and get off to a better start.”And he’s hoping Kelly provides a better performance with the second string than Lynch did.Elway might soon have to cut the man he once thought was his next franchise quarterback.“We haven’t played two preseason games yet,” Elway said, “so I’m not going to get into hypotheticals.”Notes: Newly signed S Shamarko Thomas had to leave practice early because of the heat. … Coach Vance Joseph declined to say whether Von Miller will be held out again Saturday: “We’ll see with Von. Last year he didn’t play until Week 3. I think he had four plays, one sack and one quarterback pressure.”
