For their first repeat division game of the 2015 season the Raiders head to Denver to face the Broncos. The two teams met in week 5 and the Raiders lost tough one 16-10 thanks to a late interception returned for a touchdown. As fate would have it, that's how they lost against the division foe Kansas City Chiefs last week.
These two teams are on very different trajectories over the past month or so. The Raiders are 5-7 having lost 4 of 5 and the Broncos are at 10-2 having won three straight. They did perhaps despite Peyton Manning going out with injury or perhaps because of it. Manning was not his old (or young as it were) self this season and replacement Brock Osweiler has awoken the Broncos offense. With the help of their top ranked defense, the Broncos are looking pretty impressive.
