Raiders steal one from the Broncos
The Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Broncos 34–24 on Sunday afternoon in a tough loss on hometown turf.
Driving the news: This was the third consecutive loss for the Broncos, marking the first time in franchise history that the team followed a three-game win streak with a three-game losing streak, per the Denver Post.
- The loss overshadowed festivities surrounding the induction of Mike Shanahan, the winningest coach in franchise history, into the team's Ring of Fame.
- The Raiders rebounded with a strong performance on Sunday following consecutive losses and the resignation of disgraced head coach Jon Gruden earlier this week.
What to watch: In a quick turnaround, the Broncos will travel to Cleveland Thursday night for a matchup against the Browns.
