Denver and Oakland clash in an AFC West battle on Thursday Night Football.
Denver has rolled off seven straight wins to move its record to 9-3, and has already clinched the AFC West division crown. The most recent victory came over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, as Peyton Manning led the Broncos to a 28-10 lead after three quarters and Denver held on to win, 31-23. Manning has thrown for 284 yards per game while completing 68 percent of his passes.
At 3-9, Oakland is on a streak as well, but it has consisted of five straight losses. None were really close, either, except for a 20-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns on Dec. 2. Even then, the Raiders turned a 10-point loss into a three-point loss with a touchdown that came with one second left. Oakland is struggling. The Raiders rank in the bottom seven in rushing offense, rushing defense and passing defense.
Date/Time: Thurs., Dec. 2, 6:20 p.m. MT
TV: NFL Network
Odds: Denver is favored by 10.5 points.
