Also Tuesday Vic Fangio said in Monday's team meeting he discussed with players the importance of taking COVID-19 seriously as they move into the offseason: "They need to be cautious moving forward. The virus is still rampant out there. We can see it every day ... it's out there, it's real and they need to be cautious. They've been in an environment that everybody they've been around during the day has been tested during the day ... it's out there and they need to be cautious and careful.''

The Broncos entered Sunday's game with 12 takeaways on defense/special teams for the season, which would have been the lowest single-season total in franchise history. But with the four takeaways Sunday (two interceptions and two fumbles recovered), they finished with 16, second-lowest total behind 13 takeaways in 2008 and one fewer than the 17 the team had in 2017.

Vic Fangio on the Broncos' second to last possession when Melvin Gordon ran out of brounds to stop the clock with 2:34 left, Noah Fant was flagged for holding on the next play (on a 19-yard run when Gordon also was pushed out of bounds) and Drew Lock took a sack on the sideline when he could have thrown the ball away: “We needed to do better when we had the ball on our last drive, we went out of bounds there, we had a penalty which hurt us. Those are the things that we got to improve on.''

Jeff Legwold ESPN Senior Writer 

Vic Fangio on taking the Broncos' final timeout just before the Raiders two-point play when it appeared the Raiders would not get lined up if the clock continued to run: "We just wanted to make sure we knew exactly who they had in there and how we wanted to play and thought it was more valuable at that time to use that timeout then. I would have like to save it obviously, but the game at that point, the thing is coming down to the two-point play.''

Broncos coach Vic Fangio on taking a timeout when the Raiders faced a 4th-and-goal at the 1 on Raiders' last drive: "I wasn't sure what personnel they had there, I wanted to make sure we had the ideal personnel in there for us. With that little time left we just thought it was better to burn the timeout and be straight with what we wanted to do.''
