Key Plays: Broncos vs. Raiders

Posted Sep 23, 2013

A look at some critical non-scoring plays in Denver’s 37-21 victory against the Oakland Raiders.

Broncos ball: Third-and-8 from the DEN 47, 12:54 to play, first quarter
Facing Denver’s first third down of the game, quarterback Peyton Manning connected with wide receiver Eric Decker for a 17-yard completion. Instead of an early three-and-out, the Broncos offense stayed on the field and finished the drive with a touchdown when Manning hit Decker from 2-yards out for the first points in the opening quarter for Denver in 2013.

Raiders ball: Third-and-12 from the DEN 46, 12:54 to play, second quarter
Quarterback Terrelle Pryor went to running back Rashad Jennings on third down, but cornerback Kayvon Webster was right there to make a big hit, limiting the play to a 1-yard gain and forcing a Raiders punt. Denver’s offense turned that into more points as the offense went 80 yards in 10 plays to take a 17-0 lead on a Wes Welker 12-yard touchdown reception.

Broncos ball: First-and-10 from the OAK 13, 2:52 to play, third quarter
After only needing one third-down conversion to march down the field to the doorstep of the end zone, it looked like Manning and the offense were ready to add on to their 30-7 lead. Raiders defensive end Lamarr Houston sacked Manning however, and forced a fumble in the process. Fellow defensive end Jason Hunter scooped up the loose ball to end Denver’s drive. Oakland converted that turnover into points when running back Darren McFadden hit fullback Marcel Reece on a 16-yard touchdown pass to cap the ensuing drive.

Broncos ball: First-and-10 from the OAK 20, 12:19 to play, fourth quarter
Running back Ronnie Hillman burst forward for a 19-yard carry that set Denver up with a first-and-goal from the 1-yard line. On the next play, the second-year running back finished the job, plunging behind a lead block from defensive tackle Mitch Unrein for his first touchdown of the season.

Broncos ball: Second-and-5 from the DEN 33, 2:31 to play, fourth quarter
With the Broncos looking to run out the clock, rookie running back Montee Ball coughed up the football, turning it over to Oakland. For the second time, the Raiders capitalized, turning the Broncos giveaway into points. This time, McFadden ran the ball in from 1-yard out to cut Denver’s lead to 37-21, which would turn out to be the final.
