The Denver Broncos used all three phases to defeat the Oakland Raiders Sunday at the O.co Coliseum 38-24.
Quarterback Tim Tebow had two touchdown passes and 118 rushing yards. But he wasn’t the highest rusher on the day for Denver, as running back Willis McGahee ran for 163 yards and two touchdowns of his own. Overall, the Broncos put up 299 yards on the ground against the Raiders.
Denver also got it done on defense. Cornerback Champ Bailey picked off Oakland quarterback Carson Palmer twice — the second of which sealed the game for Denver. Cornerback Chris Harris also had an interception, which led directly to a 60-yard touchdown run by McGahee to tie the game 24-24 at the end of the third quarter.
Not to be outdone, the Broncos special teams got into the mix. With 5:53 left in the game, Eddie Royal received a punt and ran 85 yards for the go-ahead touchdown.
