DENVER (AP) -- Jake Plummer -- no longer has to be a pretend John Elway. He already has had a game that rivaled the master's.Plummer threw two first-quarter touchdown passes and ran for another Monday night as Denver improved its unbeaten record by routing Oakland 31-10. He also broke one of Elway's team records with a 40-yard scramble that set up a field goal. Elway's longest run of his 16-year career was 34 yards.
Rod Smith (80) was ejected after his swing at Raider Chris Cooper hit the umpire instead.
Denver's Rod Smith was ejected in the second quarter for throwing a punch aimed at an Oakland player that hit umpire Undrey Wash. ... Oakland safety Rod Woodson returned two weeks after injuring his knee against Tennessee. He was expected to be out longer. ... Denver safety Kenoy Kennedy left in the third quarter with a twisted left ankle. ... Oakland's Jerry Rice extended his NFL record string of consecutive games with a reception to 260, and teammate Tim Brown extended his to 160.
