This game is important for the Raiders. If the Broncos lose to the Saints, they will fall to 3-4 on the season. The Chargers lost earlier today to fall to 3-4. The Raiders won today to rise to 3-4 which means a loss tonight would have them tied for first place in the division.
Aside from division implications for the Raiders, this should be a damn good game. That is if you like offense. If you are a fan of defense, you might want to turn away.
Peyton Manning vs Drew Brees is what the headline for this game. It should be a shootout between these two All Pro, Super Bowl winning quarterbacks.
The Broncos are the favorite simply because the Saints have one of the worst defenses in the NFL. But Brees can be the great equalizer as he is still on a NFL record streak of consecutive games with a touchdown pass.
So, let's go Saints.
