The Denver Broncos have an opportunity to make up ground before their bye in two weeks. First up are the Oakland Raiders, who are 2-4 like the Broncos. Jason Campbell appears to be the starting quarterback for the Raiders, but should he go down with an injury or just appear overwhelmed by the Broncos' defense, Kyle Boller will be ready to step into the game.â†µ
The Broncos' running game appeared to gain traction last week by totaling over 100 yards on the ground. If the Broncos can maintain that production and help Kyle Orton put up his normal numbers from this season, the Raiders will be in for a long day. Avoiding costly, dumb penalties (ahem,
Nate Jones Renaldo Hill) will also help the Broncos defeat the Raiders on Sunday afternoon.
Prediction: Broncos 30, Raiders 14
Knowshon Moreno rushes for over 100 yards and scores two touchdowns. Take it to the bank. Oh, and Tim Tebow attempts and completes his first pass. He'll need to wait for a touchdown pass later on in the season.
