Raiders vs Broncos week 4 live game thread

The Raiders take the field at Mile High to face Peyton Manning and the hated Broncos. They have a chance to get back to .500 on the season although with the Chargers beating up on Kansas City, a win here wouldn't mean a share of the lead in the AFC West.

The Raiders have fared well against the Broncos in Denver in recent seasons. Much of that has been the play of Darren McFadden. He had 150 yards rushing last season in Denver and 165 yards rushing with 2 touchdowns in 2010. Both wins.

The Broncos are without two starting linebacker, including their starting middle linebacker. Both are suspended for this game. But while McFadden may have a good day, the Raiders will need to keep up with the scoring abilities of Peyton Manning. That could prove difficult with a weak Raiders secondary and no pass rush to speak of.

Questionable coming into this game were RB Mike Goodson (hamstring), TE Richard Gordon (hamstring), TE Brandon Myers (concussion), WR Rod Streater (eye, neck). Only Gordon is inactive for the game. Active for the first time since the opener is WR Juron Criner.

Questionable for the Broncos was WR Matt Willis, and LB Nate Irving. Neither are starters. Both are inactive.

This one is shaping up to be a shootout just like last week against the Steelers. We shall see.
