Royal's 85-yard yard punt return TD helps Tebow, Broncos run over Raiders 38-24
OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) ' Eddie Royal returned a punt 85 yards for the tiebreaking score, Willie McGahee ran for 163 yards and Tim Tebow threw two touchdown passes to lead the Denver Broncos to a 38-24 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday.
McGahee had a 60-yard touchdown run that tied the game on the first play after Carson Palmer threw his second of three interceptions for the Raiders (4-4). McGahee then added a 24-yarder to ice it.
The Broncos (3-5) didn't allow the Raiders' offense to generate anything in the fourth quarter and won for the second time in three games with Tebow as the starter.
Tebow did much of his damage with his legs, rushing for a career-high 117 yards on 12 carries. He did enough damage with his arm to keep the Raiders honest, throwing touchdowns to Eric Decker and Royal.
