It's a tough game to watch for many Raiders fans. Both these teams have been hated rivals at some point in their existence. The Steelers and Raiders went at it in the playoffs many times in the 70s, but the Raiders see the Broncos twice a season and would like to see that franchise remain with fewer rings.
Both teams will field their All Pro quarterbacks after their status were uncertain in recent weeks. Big Ben will be without his All Pro receiver Antonio Brown and his starting running back DeAngelo Williams, putting him at a decided disadvantage against a tough Broncos defense.
