Top 20 Tweets About How the Raiders Suck After Their Latest Loss to the Broncos

Once upon a time, the Broncos-Raiders rivalry was one of the NFL's best -- but no longer. Even after losing in humiliating fashion to the Patriots last week, Peyton Manning and company took a while to get focused on Oakland and wound up trailing 10-6 during the middle of the second quarter. But then they woke up and casually pounded out a 41-17 win against what may be the most hapless Raiders squad ever. Twitter Nation responded in nasty fashion, ripping the O-towners with memorable frustration and vitriol. Below, check out our picks for the twenty most memorable tweets, supplemented by photos from the game and a bonus Vine in which Broncos backup QB Brock Osweiler thinks he's about to get into the game but doesn't. It's a laugh riot -- just like yesterday's game.
