McFadden had seven carries for six rushing yards, as well as three catches for 15 more yards receiving Sunday in a blowout loss to the Broncos. The veteran was unable to get into the flow of the offense since his team was down 31-0 at halftime.

McFadden finished the season with 379 yards rushing with five touchdowns to go along with 17 catches and 108 yards receiving. He was limited by hamstring injuries throughout the year and it has been speculated that he will not return to Oakland in 2013.
