Raiders Vs. Broncos Score Update: Willis McGahee and Tim Tebow Combine To Lead Broncos To 38-24 Victory

After the first 30 minutes of this matchup with the Oakland Raiders, it appeared that the Denver Broncos would once again struggle to find any sort of rhythm or consistency on the offensive end of the field. With the Raiders leading 17-7 and having all the momentum, the Denver Broncos responded in resilient fashion, using a dominant running game to pull away for a comfortable 38-24 win.

In his return from a hand injury, Denver RB Willis McGahee showed how important he is to the Broncos, rushing for a game-high 163 yards on only 20 carries. McGahee found the endzone twice, including a 60-yard touchdown at the end of the 3rd quarter that tied the game up at 24.

With the score tied at 24 in the 4th quarter, Eddie Royal provided the defining play of the game, as he returned a Raiders punt 85 yards for a TD. Royal also added a TD catch to help lead the Broncos to the win.

Although it wasn't always pretty, Tim Tebow delivered a productive performance in the win. Tebow completed only 10/21, but did throw for 2 TD's and 0 INT's. Tebow was particularly impressive running the ball, as he rushed for 117 yards. Surprisingly, the Broncos are now only one game out of 1st place in the AFC West heading into a visit to Kansas City next week.
