There weren't many bright spots for the 2018 Oakland Raiders. The team finished 4-12 in its first year under new head coach John Gruden, and he sent many of the team's most-iconic players (Amari Cooper, Khalil Mack) out the door.

But one of the team's few good moments came in a Week 16 matchup with the division-rival Denver Broncos. Oakland managed to reel off a 27-14 victory, sparked by this incredible first quarter punt return TD.

The ball is perfectly punted to the 1-yard line, but rather than pick it up, the Broncos let Raiders' returner Dwayne Harris scoop up the ball. Somehow, Harris manages to avoid some would-be tacklers and knife his way through the teeth of the Denver defense. He then takes it to the house for a 99-yard TD, giving Oakland a 7-0 lead.

The Raiders would manage to hang on to the lead, ultimately winning, 27-14.
