Call it a Christmas Eve miracle.
When the Broncos were forced to punt on their opening possession Monday night in Oakland, Denver attempted to pin the Raiders on their own 1-yard-line.
But Raiders punt returner Dwayne Harris had other ideas.
HE GONE 💨

As the Broncos did not have full control of the ball as they tried to down it, Harris was free to scoop it up and sprint 99 yards for the touchdown.
His 99-yard punt-return TD was just the third of its kind in NFL history.
Is there room for 1 more?
Dwayne Harris scored the 3rd punt return TD of 99+ yards in NFL history
He joins Patrick Peterson (99 yards) and Robert Bailey (103) as the only players to accomplish the feat#DENvsOAK #MNF— NFL Research (@NFLResearch) December 25, 2018
What a moment to start off what could be the last Raiders game ever at the Oakland Coliseum.
