Defense allows minus-12 yards in first half

With the Raiders mustering minus-12 yards (-17 passing, 5 rushing) in the first half, the Broncos defense stuffed Oakland for the NFL's fewest yards allowed in a first half so far this season through 14 games.

Broncos take an early lead over the Raiders at Sports Authority Field at Mile High.

Though records in this category unfortunately were not kept for some of the Broncos' finest defensive years, this mark is the franchise's best since at least 1991.

Oakland was unsuccessful on each of their four third-down conversion attempts, and they had only one first down. QB Derek Carr was sacked twice—once by OLB Von Miller, which was also a forced fumble, and once by DE Derek Wolfe, which was a loss of 15 yards.

The Broncos outgained Oakland by 236 total net yards.
