Nov. 6, 2016
Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum
Oakland, CA

The Raiders offensive line manhandles the Broncos' elite defense. Oakland (7-2) has a season-high 218 rushing yards on 43 carries. Latavius Murray has a game-high 114 rushing yards and three TDs. The Raiders have the ball for 41 minutes, 28 seconds, compared to 18:32 for the Broncos. Denver's Von Miller has only a sack, a tackle for loss and two total tackles.

The AFC-West leading Raiders end a five-game home losing streak to the Broncos (6-3), who had won 11 of the previous 13 road games against Oakland. At 7-2, the Raiders are off to their best start since 2001.
The Raiders' Derek Carr engineers three touchdown drives on 20 of 31 passing for 184 yards. Carr does not throw for a score but he also has no turnovers against the ball-hawking Denver defense, which enters the game tied for the NFL lead with 16 takeaways.
The Broncos are held to 33 rushing yards on 12 carries, averaging a mere 2.8 yards per carry. The Raiders have 218 rushing yards on 43 carries, averaging a solid 5.1 yards per rush.
A week after having an NFL-record 23 penalties against Tampa Bay, the Raiders are penalized only eight times for 72 yards compared to 12 infractions for 104 yards for the Broncos.
Oakland defensive end Khalil Mack has two sacks, a forced fumble and fumble recovery against Denver. The second-year starter has seven sacks the past two games against the Broncos.
The Broncos' Trevor Siemian finishes 18 of 37 passing for 293 yards and two TDs with an interception. He starts the game 1 of 8 for 4 yards before hitting four straight on Denver's fifth drive.

"That's what we do. We try to take our will out on people and today it looked real good. Some days it doesn't but today it looked real good. We have to keep building. We have to get more consistent."

Raiders LT Donald Penn

"We gave up 200 yards rushing today. That's definitely not the mark of a great defense, we can't just get run over."

Broncos LB Brandon Marshall

2: Sacks by Oakland defensive end Khalil Mack, who has four sacks the past two games and six sacks the last four games.
2: Consecutive Raiders victories over the Broncos after Oakland dropped the previous eight games to Denver.
41:28: Time of Possession for the Raiders compared to 18:32 TOP for the Broncos.
218: Oakland net rushing yards compared to 33 rushing yards for Denver.

The 20 points scored by the Raiders in the first half are the most points allowed by the Broncos in the opening half since Cincinnati scored 20 against Denver in a 37-28 win on Dec. 22, 2014 — a span of 29 games, including playoffs.
The Raiders' defense opens the game by forcing the Broncos into four consecutive three-and-outs. It is the first time since 2012 that Oakland does not allow an opponent to get a first down on the opening four drives.
The Raiders improve to 18-18 in Sunday night games since 1978, when the NFL started playing Sunday night games. The Broncos are 14-6 on NBC Sunday Night Football since 2006.
With the victory, the Raiders lead the series with the Broncos 62-50-2.
