The Denver Broncos (10-3) have defeated the Oakland Raiders (3-10) by a score of 26-13 on Thursday Night Football.

In a messy game that featured sloppy play on both sides, the Broncos proved too much for the Raiders to overcome, despite Denver's offense stalling four times and settling for field goals off the leg of Matt Prater.

On the nigh Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning went 26-of-36 for 310 yards and a score while running back Knowshon Moreno gave balance to Denver's offense by rushing 32 times for 119 yards and another score.

On defense, outside linebacker Von Miller recorded yet another sack (his 16th of the season) while forcing a handful of holding calls throughout the night.  Miller forced a fumble on his sack, bringing his season total to six, tying a team high (Elvis Dumervil has also recorded six this season).

The Broncos remain perfect in division play and will travel to Baltimore to take on the 9-3 Ravens next week in a game that will play a big part in the 2013 AFC Playoff picture,

Meanwhile, the struggling Raiders will take on the dismal Kansas City Chiefs at home in Week 15.

Peyton now improves to 5-2 all-time against the Raiders and 5-0 all-time on Thursday Night Football.
