The Raiders started the game well as Peyton Manning threw the ball deep for Emmanuel Sanders, but was intercepted by DJ Hayden. Their offense failed to score a touchdown, although they did take the lead through a 41-yard field goal from Sebastian Janikowski.
Denver responded with a drive to the goalline of the home side, but they failed to find the endzone, as Brandon McManus fired through the posts from 20 yards to tie the scores. McManus added another field goal at the start of the second quarter as the Broncos' offense continued to struggle.
Oakland took the lead in the match when Manning threw his second interception of the game as Justin Tuck blocked his pass and managed to catch the rebound. Derek Carr then threw a strike to Brice Butler at the back of the endzone for the touchdown.
The Broncos retook the lead when they capitalised on a mistake by Carr as he was picked off by Bradley Roby. Manning then threw a swing pass to CJ Anderson, who pulled off an incredible play to beat several tacklers and run in for a 51-yard score.
Just before the break, the visitors extended their advantage when Manning threw deep down the right sideline for Sanders, who went above his man to make a diving catch for a 32-yard touchdown.
