    Raiders continue to skate the fine line between winning and losing with another close game, this time against division rivals the Denver Broncos.

    Raiders win the toss and elect to start on D and are able to force a Denver punt. The Raiders offense came out running the ball with some success which would set up a Parris TD pass to Schilens to open the scoring. Broncos D would play great after this first series and totally shut down the Raiders offense for the rest of the 1st half. Mean while, the Broncos offense started to find its rhythm in the 2nd quarter, but could only manage 2 FGs to go into halftime down by 1, @ 7-6.

    Raiders would control the 2nd half and hold the Broncos scoreless. Not that the Raiders went on a scoring binge, they could only manage another 10 points but it was enough to secure them their 5th win of the season.
