SNF Open Thread: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders

Discuss the Sunday Night Football game with us here.

Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The 6-2 Denver Broncos will take on the 6-2 Oakland Raiders at the Oakland Coliseum. As you may have surmised from their records, this is a battle for first place in the AFC West division. The Broncos have won their last four away games against the Raiders, but this is by all accounts a better Raider team than those previous four seasons. And the Broncos are not exactly the same juggernaut they were during that stretch.

Denver still has one of the best defenses in the National Football League, but they will be without standout cornerback Aqib Talib and the Raiders are an offense that is not hurting for weapons. Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree, and Seth Roberts form one of the better wide receiver groups you can find. Latavius Murray, Jalen Richard, and DeAndre Washington make up a crowded but talented backfield.

Meanwhile, Trevor Siemien still is not very good and the Raiders defense while not great has some great players on it starting with Khalil Mack.

This should be an interesting game.
