[CSNBY] Finally! NaVorro Bowman records Raiders' first interception of season

It took 12 weeks, but the Raiders finally have their first interception of the season.

It came in unlikely fashion from an unlikely source.

With the Broncos at the 1-yard line early in the second quarter, Broncos quarterback Paxton Lynch scrambled to his left and attempted to throw across his body. He was trying to find tight end Virgil Green in the end zone. NaVarro Bowman broke up the pass and fell to the ground. The ball stayed in the air, deflected off Reggie Nelson's hands and ended up in the hands of Bowman, who was lying on the ground.

It ends the Raiders' NFL record for longest drought without a touchdown. It was the Raiders' first interception in 357 pass attempts.

On the ensuing drive, the Raiders went down the field and cashed in with an 8-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr to Amari Cooper.
