Over the years, the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders have established an intense and storied rivalry. The series has swung to and fro like a pendulum, with the Raiders dominating many of the contests of the 60s, 70s and early 80s. Then, throughout the Shanahan years, the Broncos had the upper hand. Now, the Raiders have once again regained control of the rivalry, as evidenced by a 59-14 drubbing last October.
Headed into the Oakland Coliseum this Sunday, the Broncos have another opportunity to add to the lore of this historic matchup. As Tim Tebow is already 0-1 as a starter against Oakland, losing late last season, and the Raiders have already bested the Broncos once this year, on Monday night of the season opener, Denver will be looking to get back in the win column against the Raiders.
Still, whether in victory or defeat, this heated rivalry has produced some of the most memorable performances in Broncos history. The following slides recount the 10 most memorable Denver moments in the history of the Broncos-Raiders rivalry.
