The Denver Broncos face off against the Oakland Raiders at Coliseum, otherwise known as The Black Hole. The Broncos have won seven straight games against the Raiders and will look to make it eight in a row.

Antonio Smith and Jack Del Rio will be facing off against their former teams. Last year, Smith was playing for the Raiders and Del Rio was the defensive coordinator for the Broncos in 2014.

This game will also mark the return of Derek Wolfe. He is returning from a four game suspension and it should be interesting to see how he does in his 2015 debut.

Gary Kubiak has a lot of challenges in selecting his 46 players to suit up for the AFC West showdown. We all know that Ty Sambrailo and Cody Latimer will not be suiting up as Kubiak mentioned it in the media session on Friday afternoon.

Let’s take a look at the other five players that will not be suiting up for the Broncos against the Raiders.

WR Cody Latimer

OL Ty Sambrailo

OL Shelley Smith

QB Trevor Siemian

DB Lorenzo Doss

LB Lerentee McCray

DE Kenny Anunike

Once again, Kenny Anunike is inactive. It baffles me that he has not seen a snap in the NFL so far. He did not appear on the injury report, so something tells me this is a healthy scratch. With the return of Derek Wolfe, that could have been another reason why.

The Broncos will still roll with two quarterbacks in Manning and Osweiler. This was not much of a surprise.

Evan Mathis and Bennie Fowler were labeled as “questionable” but are suiting up for the game. It will be interesting if Kubiak puts them on a pitch count. If so, look to see Max Garcia in the game for a few snaps.

Kick off is at 2:25 PM MT! Go Broncos!
