Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos: Full Oakland Game Preview

The Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos prepare for their second matchup of the season with both teams heading in opposite directions.

The Raiders failed to meet head coach Jack Del Rio’s expectations, but he ensured the team would continue to press forward in the final four games, per CSNBayArea.com reporter Scott Bair.

The Broncos ride a three-game win streak with new starting quarterback Brock Osweiler at the helm.

The fourth-year quarterback hasn’t lit up the boxscore behind a makeshift offensive line, but he’s provided enough production to enable the ground attack. The Broncos rushing offense ranks third in the last three outings, averaging 161 yards per contest.

The Raiders defense improved as a whole, ranking fifth over the past three games and surrendering an average 285.3 total yards.

Oakland’s record doesn’t reflect overall growth, but this team made strides since the first meeting in Week 5.

Here’s the tale of the tape between these AFC West foes.
