Raiders Vs. Broncos Score: Denver Comes Up With Field Goal After Oakland Turnover

The Denver Broncos won the coin toss and elected to receive the ball. It didn't pay off as the Oakland Raiders forced the Broncos to punt. But on Oakland's first play from scrimmage, rookie Von Miller forced a fumble on Jacoby Ford. Rookie safety Rahim Moore recovered the ball. The Broncos, though, settled for a Matt Prater 28-yard field goal for the 3-0 lead.

The Broncos' first drive started with Knowshon Moreno rushing for a gain of one yard, which was followed with a 15-yard pass to fullback Spencer Larsen. Last year's receiving yard leader Brandon Llloyd went in motion on the next play and had an inside slant for an 11-yard gain. Knowshon Moreno struggled on the drive, having rushing plays of one yard and a loss of six. Larsen failed to properly block on the play. On 3rd-and-15, Kyle Orton completed a 12-yard pass to running back Knowshon Moreno, forcing the Broncos to punt.
