The Denver Broncos hold a 31-6 lead over the Oakland Raiders early in the fourth quarter at Sports Authority Field at Mile High on Sunday afternoon. Peyton Manning threw two touchdown passes in the third quarter to give him three for the game.

Manning found Eric Decker for a 17-yard scoring strike to open the second half scoring. After the Broncos blocked a punt on the Raiders' ensuing possession, Willis McGahee's 4-yard touchdown run just four plays later put the Broncos up by three scores.


The Broncos added another score after holding the Raiders to a three-and-out, as Manning connected with Lance Ball for a 14-yard touchdown to put Denver up, 31-6.

Manning has completed 28 of 36 passes for 323 yards and three touchdowns in what has been his best game in a Broncos uniform to date. Meanwhile, Willis McGahee eclipsed the century mark on the ground during the quarter, racking up 105 yards on 17 carries with a touchdown in the game.
