Broncos vs. Raiders
The Denver Broncos travel to Oakland in the second of a three game road trip that includes last weekend’s loss to the New England Patriots. The Broncos (6-2) are looking to take out some aggression on the Raiders after getting absolutely bludgeoned against Tom Brady and the boys last week.
The Raiders (0-8) have a terrible record but an improving young quarterback and a hungry team, a team that would love nothing more than to welcome the mighty Broncos into town and beat them. Of course, that will be much easier said than done.
The Broncos have lost this season in the toughest places to play in the NFL in recent years — in Seattle and New England — and absolutely need this win to keep pace in the AFC and get back to at least having the same record as the Patriots to hope they mess up at some point on their up-coming five game stretch.
It’s up to the Broncos in Oakland to take care of business. Here’s all you need to know about today’s game.

This is a game that the Broncos are favored to win big in, and I think they will. They are favored by 11.5 points, but it’s always tough for a team to cover that spread. The Raiders are going to give the Broncos their best game, and they are going to be really fired up and trying to take advantage of a team that looked stale last week, to say the least.
The Broncos need to come out in this game ready to run, ready to hit, and ready to play their best football, because that’s what they’ll get from the Raiders. Plus, as their biggest rivals historically, the Broncos have a chance to cement the Raiders having yet another losing season, and that’s an opportunity they can’t pass up.
I do think the Raiders put up a fight, but I also think the Broncos will dominate this game.
