Broncos vs. Raiders

January 1, 1978

With his team down 7-3 in the third quarter, hard-hitting Raiders safety Jack Tatum appeared to force a Denver fumble on Oakland's two yard line. Unfortunately for the Raiders, the officials didn't see it that way, ruling that the Denver running back was down before the ball came out. The Broncos would score on the next play to take a 14-3 lead. They never gave it up; icing the game after Oakland made it 20-17 late in the fourth. Denver's Haven Moses (pictured) caught five passes for 168 yards and two touchdowns.
