The Broncos and Raiders were tied in the fourth quarter of their AFC West tilt, and it looked like this game that would be headed to overtime, or at least a last-minute finish like the other late NFL games.

Then Eddie Royal stepped in. He returned a punt 85 yards for the Denver score, putting them ahead of Oakland in a key game for the division.

Willis McGahee then added to the lead with a touchdown in the final two minutes of the game.

This was Royal's first punt return for a TD since 2009. Patrick Peterson's OT punt return will likely be talked about more at your office water cooler, but don't forget that Royal sealed the win for Denver in the wide open AFC West.
