Broncos vs. Raiders preview:

Oakland (6-2) enters the game winners of two straight with its last win coming a week ago at Tampa Bay by the score of 30-24. Denver (6-2) has won two games in a row as well with its most recent win coming against San Diego last week 27-19.

The Broncos allowed 369 yards last week to San Diego while picking up 324 yards themselves. The difference in the game was Denver forcing three turnovers by the Chargers. Trevor Siemian went 20-for-38 through the air for 276 yards and one interception.

The Raiders put up 626 yards of offense against the Bucs as Derek Carr had a monster day with 513 yards through the air and four touchdowns. Amari Cooper hauled in 12 catches for 173 yards and a score.

Oakland owns a 60-49-2 record against the Bills all time in the teams' 111 regular season meetings.

Broncos vs. Raiders Prediction:

The Raiders' offense looked unstoppable last week, but Denver's defense is a completely different animal than Tampa Bay's. The Broncos' pass defense is the best in the NFL allowing just 184 yards through the air per game.

Oakland will have to get the run game going, which it has shown it is capable of doing this season, to take care of the Broncos. Denver on the other hand has had trouble all season moving the football, but it should find some success against Oakland's 31st ranked defense.

Denver wins a close one on the road.
