Not much went according to plan for the Denver Broncos on Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Raiders dominated the game and pulled away in the second half for a 37-12 win.

Trailing 10-6 at halftime, the Broncos gave up 10 points in the third quarter and 17 more in the fourth. The Broncos allowed 30 or more points for the fourth consecutive game and the Raiders offense piled up 203 yards rushing.

On offense, the Broncos never got into a rhythm.

They had to settle for a 33 yard field goal in the second quarter after a third-and-three pass to KJ Hamler came up short of a first down.

Late in the second quarter, quarterback Drew Lock drove the offense from its 25 yard line to the Raiders five. On second down, Lock scampered around the left side for a touchdown. But a holding penalty on tight end Noah Fant nullified the score.

Raiders safety Jeff Heath intercepted Lock on the next play and the Broncos came up empty on the drive and trailed 10-6 at halftime.

The Raiders controlled the third quarter and early fourth. They scored 20 unanswered points to begin the second half while the Broncos were turnover-prone.

Las Vegas intercepted Lock four times and the Broncos lost a fumble in the game. The Denver defense did not create a single takeaway.

The Broncos are now 3-6 and host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, November 22. Coverage starts at 8 a.m. MST on KOA NewsRadio 850 AM and 94.1 FM.
