Eric Decker, Wes Welker and Julius Thomas all touched down for Broncos, taking Manning to an NFL-record 12 TD passes in his first three games this season - one more than Tom Brady's old record.
Ronnie Hillman also rushed for a touchdown.
Terrelle Pryor threw for 281 yards and a Denarius Moore TD for the Raiders, who never looked like recovering from a 27-7 half-time deficit.
The win maintained the Raiders' 100 per cent record from three games, while Oakland fell to 1-2.
The Broncos defense, now halfway through Von Miller's suspension and playing again without injured Champ Bailey, allowed only nine yards on the ground to Darren McFadden, who came into the game leading the league with 223 yards from scrimmage.
McFadden did, however, throw a touchdown - a 16-yard connection to Marcel Reece on a halfback option - and get a late score on the ground.
