Broncos vs. Raiders series history: Denver looks to make up ground

The Denver Broncos will take their third-ever trip to Las Vegas to play the Raiders in Week 4. Before they touch down in Sin City later this week, Broncos Wire examines the history between these two franchises.

The Raiders own a 69-54-2 record against the Broncos since the teams first began playing each other in their AFL days. Las Vegas has had success against Denver in each of the three locations they have played in (Los Angeles, Oakland and Las Vegas).

The Broncos also should have a personal stake in this upcoming game, as it is their first rivalry game with Josh McDaniels on the other sideline as head coach. McDaniels was Denver’s head coach from 2009-2010, drafting quarterback Tim Tebow and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas during his time in Mile High. McDaniels’ career as Broncos head coach ended in disgrace with a cheating scandal dubbed “McSpyGate” during the 2010 season.

Denver last won against Las Vegas in 2019, handing the Raiders their final loss as the Oakland Raiders, on a last-second pass from quarterback Drew Lock to receiver KJ Hamler. Since then, the Broncos have only come within three points once, during the 2020 season.

Can the Broncos pull into sole possession of the AFC West Sunday with a win?
