Matt Prater’s 20-yard field goal and a gift touchdown courtesy of the special teams and the offense put the Broncos in charge in the third quarter, which has been a disaster for the Raiders most of the season.
After Oakland forced a Denver field goal attempt despite a first-and-goal at the 1, Mike Goodson elected to return a kickoff deep in the end zone.
He only made it to the 8, and moments later Carson Palmer was the victim of a sack fumble by Von Miller, who blew past Khalif Barnes. The resulting Denver recovery set up a 1-yard run by Knowshon Moreno.
The Broncos later added a 33-yard field goal by Prater to cap a 13-0 quarter and are being outscored 139-51 in the third quarter this season.
