SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Utah Utes and current Denver Broncos wide receiver Tim Patrick caught an early touchdown against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The Broncos hosted the Raiders on Sunday, October 17.

With 6:49 remaining in the first quarter, Broncos quarterback Teddy Bridgewater connected with Patrick for 23 yards and six points.

Patrick’s touchdown reception tied the game at 7-7.

It was Denver’s first touchdown on an opening drive in the team’s last 25 games. The last time the Broncos scored a touchdown on their first offensive possession of a game was in December 2019.

After the play, Patrick had two catches for 30 yards and a touchdown.

The former Utah standout has recorded three touchdown catches this season.

Denver’s game against Las Vegas is broadcast on CBS.
