Top 20 Tweets About Who Is and Isn't to Blame for Broncos' Lame Loss to Raiders

The Broncos' 30-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders on Sunday Night Football wasn't nearly as close as the score indicates.

The Raiders dominated the contest from start to finish, and Denver's shortcomings were evident in all phases of the game. Quarterback Trevor Siemian started slowly and proved singularly unable to inspire a meaningful comeback. Meanwhile, the injury-riddled defense, which was left on the field far too long thanks to offensive ineptitude, gave up a staggering 223 yards in rushing to a squad with a previously pedestrian ground game and committed penalties aplenty at the worst times possible — three of them coming on the Raiders' last scoring drive.

Fans on Twitter were apoplectic about the performance, with many of them casting blame for the loss in a variety of directions.
