Broncos vs. Raiders 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Denver and Oakland clash in an AFC West battle on Thursday Night Football.

Kirby Lee-US PRESSWIRE

The Denver Broncos hit the road for an AFC West divisional battle with the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night at the Oakland Coliseum.

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.
