#4- October 4th, 1981

The Denver Broncos made their presence known in Oakland as they recorded their only shutout against the Raiders in the long history on the road. This game took place a little less than a month after the two teams faced off in a defensive battle.

The game appeared to have started out as a defensive battle as both teams were scoreless after the first quarter. Dave Preston four yard score opened up the scoring and it would prove to be the difference. The Broncos would add a Fred Steinford field goal and a Rick Parros touchdown run to lead the Broncos to the 17-0 shutout.

The biggest takeaway from the game was the Broncos defense. They would force six turnovers, four of which were on fumble recoveries. It played a huge part in the game as the Broncos did not turn the ball over once. Luckly the turnovers ended up being the case since the Raiders defense sacked Chris Morton seven times in the game.

This would mark the final game in Oakland until 1995.
