The Denver Broncos are becoming true drama kings.

After trailing all game, the Broncos took their first and only lead on Brandon McManus' 36-yard field goal with six seconds left in the game and defeated the Oakland Raiders, 20-19, in thrilling fashion on Sunday at Broncos Stadium at Mile High.

Broncos quarterback Case Keenum led a 10-play, 62 yard drive in the final two minutes to set up McManus' game-winning kick.

It was one of four second half scoring drives for Keenum and the offense after the Raiders shut out the Broncos in the first half.

The Broncos rallied from two 12-point deficits. They trailed 12-0 at halftime and 19-7 with 5:25 left in the third quarter.

They scored 10 points in the final 5:58 of the game to pullout the win.

Running back Phillip Lindsay accounted for 111 scrimmage yards and became the first undrafted player in NFL history to record 100 or more scirmmage yards in each of his first two NFL games.

The Broncos are 2-0 and play at Baltimore next Sunday. KOA NewsRadio coverage begins at 7 a.m. MDT on September 23.
