Peyton Manning got off to a hot start and didn't look back. Before the first half was over, Manning had broken the record for the most passing yards in a single season, the Broncos had broken the record for most points by a team in a single season, and the Raiders were in a 31-point hole.
By the second half, Brock Osweiler had taken over, and the Broncos had taken the foot off the gas. Manning finished the game 25-of-28 passing for 266 yards and four touchdowns, giving him 55 touchdowns on the season. The four touchdowns gave the Raiders the most passing touchdowns allowed (33) in a season in franchise history.
Osweiler was efficient in the second half but only led the Broncos to three second-half points. The Raiders added two late touchdowns but it was too little, too late.
The win helped the Broncos lock up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Fantasy studs and duds

Demaryius Thomas caught a pair of touchdowns, and Knowshon Moreno added a touchdown as well. The Broncos offense produced plenty of fantasy football studs as it has done all season long.
