The Broncos Rub Salt In The Raiders’ Wounds By Trolling Them After Their Wild Card Loss To The Texans

After not posting a winning season since 2002, the Oakland Raiders were one of the greatest storylines in the NFL this year. Third year quarterback Derek Carr made a spectacularly unexpected bid at MVP with 28 touchdowns and just 6 interceptions on almost 4,000 yards passing. But a devastating leg injury Carr suffered against the Colts last week turned the 12-4 Raiders from a formidable Super Bowl contender to a team fighting to reestablish its identity in the most crucial time of the season.

But Saturday, the Houston Texans ended the Raiders best season in nearly two and a half decades after beating them 27-14 in the wild card game. No one enjoyed watching the Raiders crash and burn more than their   the Denver Broncos, evident in this tweet they sent out less than an hour after the Raiders season ended.

Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall was particularly happy with the demise of a team who took a lot of shine off he and his Broncos this year.

Marshall also retweeted numerous pictures, including the ones below.

Simmer down, Denver. You missed the playoffs a year after winning the Super Bowl. Your projecting your bruised egos.

Matt’s love of writing was born during a sixth grade assembly when it was announced that his essay titled “Why Drugs Are Bad” had taken first prize in D.A.R.E.’s grade-wide contest. The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
