The Raiders put up an impressive 59-14 route last season in Denver, and Raiders special teams came through against the Chargers. With Cable up in Seattle coaching Seattle the motivational leader of last years Raiders is gone.
The Raiders are likely to return to their previous pattern of Raider football. The first pattern is where the Raiders become over aggressive and as a result pick up several personal fouls.
The second pattern in Raider ball before Cable got them playing was a lot of turn overs. Dumervil, Miller, and Dawkins need to increase the pass rush, and killer hits to help increase the turnovers.
Another key for the Broncos is to establish the run. Orton cannot throw a lot of interceptions in this game if the Broncos want to win.
