With the Denver Broncos Week 9 debacle in the history books, fans should be geared up for the biggest week on the schedule, Raider Week. As we all know, it does not matter what is happening in the NFL when it is time to play the Raiders. Nothing makes Bronco fans smile more than beating our most hated rival.

Now, with a bitter taste in our mouths, we as fans are chomping at the bit for an absolute destruction of Oakland. We all know how much better it will feel next week if we can point to a nice turn around and a big double digit victory.
I am sure that the Broncos would like that, too. Peyton Manning and company have to know that nothing will please his fans more than seeing him break some single game records, and destroy the most hated team in the AFC West. John Elway must be in the locker room talking about how this game is the most important game of the season to this point. If you do one thing as a Bronco each year, and only one thing, you must beat the Raiders.

Does John Fox know that nothing else matters? He better, or Denver fans are going to start to riot. Put the running game away for this week. Unleash the air assault on Oakland. If the score is 35-0 at the start of the 2nd half, it better be 42-0 by the middle of the 3rd quarter. Julius and Demaryius Thomas had better each make their fantasy owners unbearably happy. Emmanuel Sanders should have two touchdowns in the 4th quarter just to rub it in Oakland’s face (the city and the team).
Someone needs to put a brick on the gas peddle and walk away. This team needs to make a statement. The Patriots game was bad, and if the Broncos walk away from Raider Week with any blemishes, it will be considered a let down. Only a blow out is acceptable in week 10. A win is not a win this week.
