Tim Tebow made his first career NFL start for the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and got off to a very quick start. In the first quarter, Tebow scampered 40 yards on a quarterback draw for a touchdown, and then hit Brandon Lloyd on a gorgeous 33-yard touchdown pass in the back corner of the end zone as the Broncos opened up a 14-7 lead on the Oakland Raiders.
From that point forward, it was all Oakland.
As a team, the Raiders rushed for 264 yards and three touchdowns. Jacoby Ford got things started with a 71-yard touchdown rush on a reverse, and Darren McFadden - though held out of the end zone - added 119 yards on 20 carries. Michael Bush scored twice while chipping in 24 rushing yards himself.
In all, Tebow threw for 138 yards on 8-of-16 passing and added eight carries for 78 yards, but Denver's offense could muster only nine points after the first quarter while the Raiders, quite literally, ran away with this one.
