Week 3 of the NFL season finds the Oakland Raiders playing their third straight AFC Western divisional opponent, this time against arch-rival Denver Broncos. One of the best rivalries in sports will be underway today with the Raider leading the all-time series 55-40-2.
The Broncos come into Oakland with a lot of confidence and a 2-0 record after taking down the teams from Ohio, while the Raiders are 1-1 and can take a stake of 1st place with a victory today.
It's been well documented and abundantly analyzed around here about JaMarcus Russell's quarterbacking capabilities. However, his best games so far have been against Denver, so look for JaMarcus to respond with an improved and solid game today with a game plan that will put him in position for success.
It doesn't get any better than this with these two teams so let's bring it Oakland! The Raiders can set their course for the rest of the season today with a win, as the grueling part of their schedule begins starting next week.
