Store To Give Away Free Appliances If Broncos Blank Raiders

Denver_Manning_2013More than $1 million worth of refrigerators, dishwashers and mattresses will be on the line once again on Monday night when the Denver Broncos play the Oakland Raiders.

For at least the last decade, the Appliance Factory, a network of 13 stores in Colorado, has offered customers who buy products from the stores in the week before the Raiders game their items free if the Broncos shut out the Black and Silver.

There have been some close calls over the years for the promotion, and Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski has played the role of near-spoiler. Janikowski kicked two early field goals, Oakland’s only points of last year’s game in Denver. And, if not for a Janikowski field goal in the 2004 and 2005 games played in Denver, the Raiders would have been shut out.
