Shelby Harris made the play of the game when he knocked down Carr’s pass on the Raiders’ final offensive play of the game.
Phillip Lindsay didn’t have the best performance of his young career, but he did rush for just enough yards to push him over the 1,000-yard rushing mark for the second consecutive season. His 8-yard run in the fourth quarter pushed him over the limit, and he finished with 1,011 for the season. He is the first undrafted running back in NFL history to begin his career with back-to-back 1,000-yard rushing campaigns, and he is the fourth Broncos running back to post back-to-back 1,000-yard seasons.
DaeSean Hamilton and Courtland Sutton both showed out at wide receiver. After recording 167 receiving yards in his first 14 games, Hamilton has tallied 130 yards over his last two games. His development with Lock under center could prove pivotal in 2020. Sutton, meanwhile, caught four passes for 52 yards and also drew a handful of penalties, including one that moved the ball to the Oakland 1-yard line that set Denver up for a go-ahead score. Sutton finishes his second season with more than 1,100 yards.
Trey Marshall forced a game-changing turnover in his second start at safety.
Drew Lock again didn’t light up the stat sheet, but he again led the Broncos to key drives as he completed 17-of-27 passes for 177 yards and a touchdown. Lock is now 4-1 as a starter, matching Trevor Siemian and Norris Weese for the best record by a Broncos quarterback in his first five career starts. He also posted a higher quarterback rating (94.2) than Carr (89.5).
