The Broncos drove to midfield and the Raiders blocked Brandon McManus’63-yard field goal try to win it.

Las Vegas led by a touchdown at the half but Denver rallied. McManus, who had a 70-yard field goal try blocked at the end of the first half, had a 37-yarder and another from 26 yards out to cut the deficit to 17-16.

Raiders wide receiver Henry Ruggs III fumbled after a hard hit, and five plays later Gordon ran it in from the 10. Lock passed to Jeudy for the 2-point conversion to put the Broncos ahead 24-17.

Lock’s one-yard touchdown pass to Troy Fumagalli gave Denver a 10-3 lead, and the Raiders matched it on Carr’s 28-yard TD pass to Waller.
