Bob Davis

Recommended Posts

The defending Superbowl Champion Denver Broncos hosted the Oakland Raiders, (the number one seed in the NFC) in the opening game of the new season. The Bronco defense was dominant as they shut down the Raiders on their opening drive. Bronco running back Jim Jensen fumbled on the third play of the Broncos opening drive which was recovered by the Raiders and taken all the way to the Bronco 22 yard line. Again, the Bronco defense not only held but sent the Raiders back 15 yards. Kicker Errol Mann was able to knock home a 52 yard field goal for the first score of the game. Bronco QB Craig Morton was a perfect 4 of 4 for 66 yards as he led his team deep into Raider territory. K Jim Turner tied the game as time ran expired in the first half. The Broncos went on a 7 play drive that included a forth down conversion and culminated with a Morton to WR Rick Upchurch 42 TD. The Bronco defense held tough and the Raiders were not able to score again. The Broncos win 10-3.
