    Raiders 28 Broncos 44




    Broncos and Raiders meet for round two of their division rivalry. Round 1 was a close down to the wire event but this game would go a little differently. ​

    Denver started out strong defensively and offensively and jumped out to a 0–14 lead in the 1s quarter. The Raiders fought back in the 2nd quarter with 14 points of their own, but the Broncos offense was just hot and added 17pts more. With an halftime score of 14-31, the deficit turned out to be too great to overcome. Both teams put up the same amount of points (just about) in the 2nd half and the Broncos get the season sweep over L.A. Brock Osweiler (11/14 254yds 3TD) had a rare turnover free game which really made a difference in this one. It allowed the team to maintain the lead by not giving it away and continuing to add points.​

    21 RB Ronnie Hillman

    RB Ronnie Hillman was a star rushing 146yds and a TD on 20 carries. Denver rushed for 235yds as a team, but the most notable rushing play was the Demaryus Thomas end around play that went 42yds. Thomas had a pretty good day overall with 5 receptions for 150yds and a TD. Now that TE Julius Thomas is out for the year with an abdominal tear, D. Thomas has to step up it up a notch. Not that back up TE Virgil Green is not capable of stepping into that #1 spot. Green only had 2 rec’s in this game, but both happened to be for TD’s. Green will get some good reps in the last few games of the season.​



    Good game Hulk_hagen_55. Good luck!
