Another key AFC West Showdown. However, this rivalry has been one sided as of lately. The Raiders have never beaten the Broncos since Peyton Manning came to town. I believe that trend continues on Sunday.

I believe the Broncos defense will expose the Raiders offense and make them look silly. Then again, the last three opponents the Raiders have faced have a combined 3-9 record. Not to mention they gave John Fox and the Bears their first win of the year.

The Broncos defense keeps Amari Cooper in check the entire game. No receiving touchdowns and less than 70 yards receiving. They will also record another seven sack performance against Derek Carr.

Do not be surprised to see Brock Osweiler in the game at around the fourth quarter mark. I foresee this game as a blowout, as I have earlier predicted before the season begins. But I will throw a bone to the Raiders, just a small one though.
