Top 20 Tweets by Raiders Fans Angry Their Team Lost to Broncos & Peyton Manning
Another week, another group of fans who can't believe their team managed to lose to the Denver Broncos.
This time around, it's boosters of the Oakland Raiders, who hosted Denver at The Black Hole yesterday afternoon.
As noted in our recent collection of Raiders suck memes, plenty of Raiders loyalists thought this would be the year their squad would finally return to respectability — and for a while, Peyton Manning seemed eager to help them, throwing two picks to Charles Woodson, the defensive back who bested him in Heisman Trophy balloting nearly two decades ago.
But once again, the Broncos' incredible D made up for the offense's impotence, with an assist from usually reliable Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, who misfired on not one but two field goals. (Technically, the first one was blocked, but mainly because it barely got six feet off the ground.) Final score: Denver 16, Oakland 10.
During and after the game, Raiders fans vented their spleen on Twitter. Below, count down their twenty most memorably profane and/or pissed-off tweets, decorated with images from the game.

Broncos sucked ass today, and if the Raiders didn't suck more ass they would have lost, Mike. They are 5-0 but not looking it. @mftebbetts— Gunny Dave USMC (@dave_usmc) October 12, 2015
