Denver Broncos lead Oakland Raiders at half time.


Many of the sportsbooks in Las Vegas had the Broncos as 16 point favorites against the Oakland Raiders on Monday night. It looks like they might have undershot that number by a bit.

The Denver Broncos currently lead the Oakland Raiders by a score of 27-7. The Broncos have been methodically moving the ball down the field virtually every possession. Britton Colquitt, the Broncos punter, has only seen the field one time.

It has been an absolute passing clinic for Peyton Manning and the Broncos so far. Denver hasn’t been that successful in establishing the running game, but they really haven’t needed to.

The Raiders are fortunate that they made it on the scoreboard at all. Denarius Moore caught a 73 yard touchdown pass from Terrelle Pryor that saw both Bronco defenders run into each other and Moore spin away from them on route to the endzone. Other than that broken play the Raiders have looked mostly lost on offense.

Matt Prater has added two field goals to the Broncos scoring. He has hit successfully from 53 yards and 41 yards
