The Denver Broncos end the first quarter with a 6-0 lead over the Oakland Raiders. So far, the Raiders defense is coming up strong in the red zone, but otherwise has been unable to stop the Broncos offense.

The Denver Broncos open the game up with a solid drive, but they decided to get cute down near the red zone with a reverse to Cody Latimer that nearly got fumbled. Still, Brock Osweiler looks crisp and ready and the Broncos put up a field goal to go up 3-0 over the Oakland Raiders.

On the Raiders first drive an illegal contact penalty on Chris Harris Jr. extended the drive on the Raiders first third down, but then Von Miller came alive with a strip sack on Derek Carr on the next third down to end the drive for good.

Brock Osweiler's completed his first ten passes of the game, but his first incomplete pass ends the Broncos next drive, but Brandon McManus is there to put the Broncos up 6-0 with the biggest play of the driving being a strike to Vernon Davis over the middle for 19 yards to put the Broncos down in scoring range.

The Raiders got a quick three and out on their next possession to give the ball right back to the Broncos. The Broncos end the quarter with a failed Osweiler deep ball and will be punting to start the second quarter.
