January 1, 1978: The Broncos defeated the Raiders 20–17 at Mile High Stadium to win their first AFC Championship.
September 26, 1988: The Broncos led 24–0 at halftime on Monday Night Football, however, the Raiders sparked one of the largest comebacks in NFL history, winning 30–27 in overtime. After serving as an offensive assistant under Broncos' head coachDan Reeves in the mid-1980s (and again in the early 1990s), Mike Shanahan's first season as an NFL head coach was with the Los Angeles Raiders in 1988, before he was fired four games into the 1989 season.
December 2, 1990: Raiders' defensive tackle Scott Davis blocked a 41-yard field goal attempt by Broncos' kicker David Treadwell in the final seconds for a 23–20 Raiders win at Mile High Stadium.
November 10, 1991: The Raiders won 17–16 in Denver, aided by two blocked kicks — an extra-point attempt and a last-second field goal attempt. Denver was trailing 17–10 with 8:37 left in the fourth quarter, and attempting to tie the game after a touchdown pass from John Elway to Vance Johnson. However, Raiders' defensive tackle Scott Davis blocked the extra-point attempt by Broncos' kicker David Treadwell. After the Broncos blocked a field goal attempt by Raiders' kicker Jeff Jaeger that would have increased the Raiders' lead with 1:55 left, the Raiders returned the favor, when offensive tackle James Fitzpatrick, playing on special teams, blocked a potential 48-yard game-winning field goal by Treadwell as time expired. It was the second consecutive meeting at Mile High Stadium in which the Raiders blocked a field goal in the game's final seconds.
November 22, 1992: The Raiders shutout the Broncos 24–0 at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum. Denver has not been shutout since, and to date, hold the NFL's longest active streak without being shutout.
January 2 and 9, 1994: In the 1993 season finale (January 2, 1994), the Raiders rallied from a 30–13 deficit to beat the Broncos 33–30 in overtime to make the playoffs and set up another game between the two teams in Los Angeles the following week. Outspoken Raiders' owner Al Davis said before the playoff game that Denver was "scared to death of us." Despite the Broncos' protests, the Raiders won 42–24.
1995 season: In 1995, former Raiders' head coachMike Shanahan, who was in an ongoing contract dispute with owner Al Davis at the time, became the Broncos' new head coach, heightening an already contentious AFC West rivalry. Prior to Shanahan's arrival in Denver, the Broncos had lost 13 out of the previous 15 against the Raiders from 1988–94, but during Shanahan's 14 seasons as their head coach (1995–2008), the Broncos went 21–7 against Oakland.
November 22, 1999: At the end of a Broncos' 27–21 overtime win in Denver on Monday Night Football, Raiders' safety Charles Woodson and offensive tackle Lincoln Kennedy engaged in a snowball fight with some fans, after being pelted with snowballs from some unruly fans. Woodson threw a snowball that struck a woman in the face, while Kennedy charged into the stands and assaulted a fan after being hit by a snowball.
November 13, 2000: In the final Monday Night game at Mile High Stadium, Broncos' quarterbackBrian Griese suffered a partially separated right shoulder in the second quarter, and after receiving a pain-killing shot and missing only six plays, he led the Broncos on a game-winning drive late in the fourth quarter that resulted in a last-second 41-yard field goal by kicker Jason Elam, for a 27–24 Broncos' win.
November 11, 2002: The Raiders trounced the Broncos 34–10 in Denver on Monday Night Football. However, the game is notable for an incident between former teammates Bill Romanowski and Shannon Sharpe, in which Romanowski wrestled with and dislocated Sharpe's elbow following an incompletion, forcing Sharpe to miss three games. The two were teammates from 1996 to 2001, however, Romanowski had signed with the Raiders prior to the 2002 season.
November 28, 2004: In a Sunday night game played in a Denver blizzard, the Broncos grabbed the early lead and appeared to be headed toward an easy victory. However, Raiders' quarterbackKerry Collins led a rally in snowy conditions and offensive tackle Langston Walker, playing on special teams, blocked a game-winning field goal attempt by Broncos' kicker Jason Elam in the game's final seconds for a 25–24 Raiders' win.
September 16, 2007: As Raiders' kicker Sebastian Janikowski kicked what would have been a game-winning field goal in overtime, Broncos' head coach Mike Shanahan called a timeout right before he made it. After the timeout, Janikowski attempted the field goal again, but it hit the upright and missed. The Broncos then won on a field goal by Jason Elam.
October 24, 2010: The Raiders scored 38 points in the first half in Denver. The Raiders routed the Broncos 59–14, not only making it the most points scored in a single game in franchise history, but also tying the highest point total that the Broncos have allowed in a single game, since a 59–7 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in 1963.
