    45-42 BRONCOS



    This one went back and forth all game long. The opportunistic Denver defense had a few takeaways and the team that wins the turnover battle usually comes out on top.

    Brock Osweiler has become more than a game manager at quarterback as of late. He threw 4 TDs and proved to the world that it's time he starts getting some mention as an elite NFL QB. The young gun taught future Hall of Famer Kurt Warner a lesson in decision making.

    Demaryius Thomas continues to make big plays. He doesn't catch a lot of passes, but he makes the most of his opportunities.

    Rookie RB Darrian Reagen, who got off to a blazing hot start, had been relatively quiet for the past two games. Some thought he hit the rookie wall, but after his performance in Oakland this week, it looks like he's run through that wall. The D-Train picked up over 150 yards on the ground and ran for 2 scores.


    Oakland was down two scores in the fourth quarter and made a hell of a comeback to tie it up with 9 seconds left in regulation. Instead of going for the 2PT conversion and the win, Oakland head coach decided to be conservative and take this one into overtime.

    In OT, Oakland won the coin toss...but ended up punting away their first possession. Both offenses, who were flying high in regulation, stalled in extra time. Denver ended up getting good field position and Osweiler made some big throws to get them into field goal range.

    Matt Prater, who's been automatic this season, knocked down a 45 yard game winner and the Broncos escaped Oakland with their perfect division record still intact.

    Not how I saw this game going, but it was definitely a fun one.
