Darren McFadden Throws Touchdown Pass To Marcel Reese For Raiders (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Struggling to impact the game with his legs, Oakland Raiders running back Darren McFadden used his arm to score a touchdown against the Denver Broncos on "Monday Night Football."
In a move that may not have surprised many who followed him in the SEC, McFadden threw a 16-yard touchdown strike to fullback Marcel Reece in the third quarter. To that point, Peyton Manning had tossed for three scores as the Broncos rushed out to an early lead. McFadden, meanwhile, had been held to fewer than 10 rushing yards.

Twice the runner-up in Heisman Trophy voting while at Arkansas, McFadden starred in the Razorbacks' version of the "Wildcat offense" dubbed the "Wild Hog" before being selected by Oakland with the No. 4 overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft. McFadden completed 14 of 22 attempts at Arkansas for seven touchdowns against just one interception.

This was McFadden's first NFL completion and first NFL passing touchdown. It cut the Broncos' lead to two scores but McFadden and the Raiders would get no closer, losing 37-21.
