The terms “accomplish” and “Oakland Raiders” haven’t been put in a lot of sentences together of late, but this feels like the game in which the silver and black are going to at least stay competitive again. They had the Cleveland Browns dead to rights last week, and had RB Darren McFadden been out there, there probably would have been a good shot to win that one. All of the major problems have come on the road for this team this year, including losing by 22 to Miami, 31 to these Broncos, 35 to Baltimore, and 24 to Cincinnati. At home though, no game has had a margin of defeat greater than 10 points outside of a 38-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints, and it just doesn’t feel like Denver is going to come on the road and win this one by this many points. We don’t truly believe that the residents of the Black Hole are going to see a win, but we do think that they are at least going to make QB Peyton Manning for his 10th victory of the season. This is just a heck of a lot of points to be giving in any NFL game on the road.
Broncos @ Raiders Pick: Oakland Raiders +10.5
Denver @ Oakland Score Prediction: Denver 24 – Oakland 20
