Raiders run past Broncos for second Allegiant Stadium win

The Las Vegas Raiders came away with a 37-12 win over the Denver Broncos behind a big second half.


It was the fifth time this season the Raiders scored at least 30 points in a game. The team’s record is 5-0 in those games.


Additionally, it was the second win for Las Vegas in it’s new Allegiant Stadium in four tries.


The win keeps the team undefeated in the AFC West at 3-0, sitting in second place behind the 8-1 Kansas City Chiefs.


Kansas City’s lone loss on the season came at the hands of Vegas on Oct. 11 when the Raiders won 40-32.


The Chiefs will attempt to even the score Nov. 22 on Sunday Night Football when quarterback Patrick Mahomes makes his Allegiant Stadium debut.


A 27-6 second half was the result of multiple forced turnovers by Las Vegas.


Three of the five turnovers committed by Denver were committed in the second half.


The Raiders did not commit a turnover during the game.


Broncos quarterback Drew Lock threw two of his four interceptions in the second half.


Lock went 23-for-47, passing for 257 yards, with a touchdown and four interceptions.


Safety Jeff Heath led the way with two interceptions while defensive end Carl Nassib and linebacker Nick Kwiatkoski grabbed one apiece.


Cornerback Nevin Lawson came away with the lone fumble recovery of the day.


Coming into the game, the Raiders were last in the league in defensive takeaways.


On the offensive side of the ball, Las Vegas was aided by 203 team rushing yards while holding Devner to just 66 yards of its own.


Second year running back Josh Jacobs led the way with 112 yards on 21 carries and two touchdowns.


He now has four touchdowns against the Broncos, the most against any team for him.


Backup running back Devontae Booker added 81 yards on 16 carries, also scoring twice.


Las Vegas won the time of possession battle 36:38 to 23:22 behind the strong rushing attack.


Quarterback Derek Carr went 16-for-25, passing for 154 yards also marking the first time all season long he finished without a touchdown pass.


Carr is now 6-6 in his career against the Denver franchise.


He is now at least .500 against every team he has at least four starts against with the exception of one team.


That one team is Kansas City, which Carr has a 3-10 career record against.
