At halftime of their AFC West showdown, the Las Vegas Raiders lead the Denver Broncos 19-16. The game was at one point knotted at 10-10 before each team scored a touchdown in the final four minutes of the half — and they each missed the ensuing extra point. The Raiders then engineered a last-second field goal drive to take the lead.

The Vegas touchdown came on a 68-yard fumble return by Amik Robertson, who picked the ball of the ground after Melvin Gordon fumbled it on his first carry of the game. Denver’s touchdown came courtesy of Jerry Jeudy, whom Russell Wilson connected with on a beautiful seam ball shortly after he had found Kendall Hinton for a big gain against a blown coverage. 

The teams’ earlier scores were registered by Josh Jacobs (12 carries for 58 yards, five receptions for 31 yards) and Courtland Sutton (four catches, 34 yards). The much-anticipated matchup between Davante Adams and Patrick Surtain II, with each player making a couple plays while they were lined up across from each other. Raiders wideout Mack Hollins also nearly had a touchdown, but one of his feet came down out of bounds. 

Can the Raiders manage to nab their first win of the season, or will the Broncos stage a second-half comeback? We’ll find out soon enough. In the meantime, keep it locked to our live blog for the rest of the afternoon as we update you with stats, scores, and highlights.
