Denver is stacked with talented players thanks to John Elway’s construction of the team over the last four years. So, there have been far more “studs” than “duds” this season, and we’ll look at a few specific men here.
Throughout the John Elway – Peyton Manning Era, a focus on offense was apparent. But things have changed this season, and possibly for the better, as the Broncos are more well-suited to face the playoffs this time around.
The 3-12 Oakland Raiders travel to Denver for their 2014 finale against the Broncos, and it’s probable the Broncos may not have much to play for, in terms of playoff seeding. But Denver will still want to win the game, and the Raiders haven’t been very good on the road this year at all—the Silver & Black is winless, in fact, away from the Coliseum.
The Denver Broncos are coming off a loss, and that means bad news for the winless Oakland Raiders. Peyton Manning loves to dissect a bad defense, and that’s what he’s prepping to do right now—leaving the Silver & Black on the spot for Sunday’s game at the Coliseum against the defending AFC champs.
Both Patriots Nation and Broncos Country are looking forward to Brady/Manning XV. The rest of the planet will probably enjoy the game, too.
The Oakland Raiders didn’t score until the final five minutes of the game Sunday against the conference’s best team, while the defense put the offense in a big hole early.
The Oakland Raiders will be done for the 2013 season when that final whistle blows on Sunday afternoon at the O.co Coliseum, but the Denver Broncos have their sights set on the Super Bowl.
The 4-11 Oakland Raiders can’t keep the 12-3 Denver Broncos from winning the AFC West, but they might be able to stop their division rivals from claiming the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs if the Silver and Black can end a five-game losing streak.
AFC defensive all-pro selections are in. Defensive line, led by J.J. Watt, looks like a brick wall. See who else made the list.
