The Raiders will look to rebound from an embarrassing performance on Sunday Night Football where they were dominated by the Washington Redskins. For those who can not get in front of a screen for the game, head over to either team's homepage to check out radio listings. Carr was sacked four times, the most he's had in a single game since 2015.
These longtime division rivals split their two meetings a year ago with the home team winning both times. Backup running back Jamaal Charles had 31 yards on just three carries and added another 14 yards on a reception. He had a rating of 52.9 and a QBR of 3.5.
This will be the 116th game between the Raiders and the Broncos. The Raiders are showing signs of being the poor defensive team that they were a year ago, and that's going to result in a lot of losses to quality teams, as Carr and company can't score 30-plus points every weekend. As the stats show above, Denver is the No. 3 rushing offense in the NFL. In three matches against the Denver, he is averaging 3.79 yards per attempt with three touchdowns. They did manage seven tackles in the backfield.
PREDICTION: The Raiders stand a much better chance to win with Derek Carr under center instead of Matt McGloin, per last meeting. But Lynch gives the Raiders a tone-setting physicality and personality. Green was superb in the first two games, truly shining as a blocker and he'll need to do so again.
The Oakland Raiders and Denver Broncos meet Sunday in National Football League action at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Last season saw him post the second 1,000-yard season of his career (with his last in 2012), as he hauled in a career-high 89 receptions.
Lynch also has a short, but painful, history against the Broncos.
"They're all must-wins", Joseph said. The Broncos were able to hold down Bills running back LeSean McCoy, but they allowed Tyrod Taylor to control the ball with short passes, as he completed 20 of 26.
OUR PREDICTION: Both of these teams had to fly cross-country last week and knew they were facing each other this week.
"We may have different values and beliefs, but there's one thing we all agree on: We're a team and we stand together no matter how divisive some comments and issues can be, nothing should ever get in the way of that", the players concluded.
