Another Monday Night game at Mile High, but this one provided more excitement than the game mentioned before this. The Broncos were looking to sweep the season series against the Raiders on this day. However, it would take all 60 minutes in order to accomplish this.

Terrell Davis would open up the scoring. After coming off a major knee injury that forced him to miss the entire 1999 season, the running back would find the end zone just under four minutes into the game to give the Broncos a 7-0 lead.

However, that lead would not hold up as the Raiders would score ten unanswered points. That included a Brett Conway field goal and a Zack Crockett one yard run would give the Raiders the lead going into the half.

The second half would prove to be one for the ages. And the scoring in the half would start in a way we would have never guessed. With the Raiders punting the ball away, Shane Lechler would have his punt attempt blocked and returned by Ian Gold for a touchdown.

That special teams touchdown was the start of 17 unanswered points for the Broncos as they would take a 24-10 lead early in the fourth quarter. But the Raiders would not go away quietly. Another Crockett touchdown cut the lead to seven and a Rich Gannon to Tim Brown touchdown connection with just over a minute left in the fourth quarter tied the game at 24.

But once again, the Mile High Magic would provide to be the difference as Brian Griese would lead the Broncos down the field and left it to the boot of Jason Elam. His 41 yard field goal as time expired would give the Broncos a 27-24 win.

The biggest takeaway of this game was that it was the final Monday night game at Mile High Stadium.
