The Broncos won the opening coin toss and deferred to the second half.

Facing a 3rd & 10 with 10:20 left in the first half, Manning connected with Wes Welker but the wide receiver was brought down by Chance Casey and Brandian Ross short of the first-down marker that forced a Denver punt.

On 3rd & 7, Carr stood in the pocket and delivered a strike to Mychal Rivera for a gain of 14 and an Oakland first down.

With just over 5:00 left in the first half, Manning threw to Andre Caldwell, but DJ Hayden provided the coverage and forced the incomplete pass.

Two plays later, Wes Welker recovered a fumble short of the first down marker that forced Denver to punt yet again.

The Broncos moved the ball the length of the field, but on 3rd & 8, Manning's pass to Demaryius Thomas was incomplete and Denver was forced to settle for a field goal.
