There is only pride on the line tonight when longtime rivals the Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders meet on Christmas Eve.

Both teams are out of playoff contention. The Broncos (6-8) can still finish with a .500 record while the Raiders (3-11) have a shot at the No. 1 pick, but only if they lose out and the Arizona Cardinals win next week.

The first time these two teams met this season was way back in Week 2. The Broncos eked out a 20-19 win over the Raiders at home.

Who wins tonight in Oakland? ESPN has laid out its prediction.

The FPI gives Denver a 60.5 percent chance of winning.

ESPN prediction for Denver-Oakland.

Broncos-Raiders will kick off at 8:15 p.m. ET.

ESPN will broadcast the game.
