The rivalry with the Raiders was ignited in 1977, when the Broncos advanced to their first Super Bowl by defeating the defending champion Raiders in the 1977 AFC Championship. The rivalry intensified in the mid-1990s, when Mike Shanahan was hired as the Broncos’ head coach in 1995. Shanahan coached the Raiders in 1988 before being fired four games into the 1989 season. The Raiders currently hold a 63–52–2 series lead over the Broncos, including 1–1 in the playoffs.

The Raiders pulled to within 16–10 late in the game, however, the Broncos’ defense and special teams preserved the hard-fought victory.

November 26, 2017: During the first quarter of a Raiders’ 21–14 win in Oakland, Broncos’ cornerback Aqib Talib and Raiders’ wide receiver Michael Crabtree engaged in an ugly brawl on the sidelines that resulted in both players initially being suspended for two games, but reduced to one game apiece after an appeal. The two had a history of bad blood with each other, in which Talib yanked off a chain from Crabtree’s neck, during the teams’ 2016 regular season finale in Denver, with Talib repeating his actions that resulted in the brawl with Crabtree. During the play that preceded the brawl, Crabtree also punched Broncos’ cornerback Chris Harris, Jr. in the stomach.
