Greetings, Raider Nation! Though the Raiders have a much-needed bye week in Week 7, the rest of the NFL is chugging right along. Tonight’s matchup pits our mortal enemy, the Broncos, on the road in the desert at the Arizona Cardinals.

Neither of these teams are very good, with the Broncos at 2-4 and the Cardinals at 1-5. But the Cardinals at least have some hope for the future with rookie quarterback Josh Rosen taking the helm as Sam Bradford was, predictably, a combination of injured and ineffective.

The Broncos are the ONLY team in NFL history to have allowed a 200-yard rusher in consecutive weeks. Two weeks ago they allowed the JetsIsaiah Crowell to rush for 219 yards and last week, Todd Gurley ran for 208. Marshawn Lynch might be able to break 150 when the Raiders play them again, and my aged grandmother would likely go for triple digits with adequate power blocking and a good fullback.

Tonight’s game can be seen on FOX and the NFL Network. Enjoy the game!
