The Denver Broncos need to come out today and prove to themselves that last week was a fluke and not a harbinger of things to come. On paper, the Oakland Raiders are pretty bad and anything but a three score blowout win for the Broncos should be seen as a bit disappointing.

With the huge shakeup along the offensive line, however, the Broncos have some questions marks that need answers. Things must have been pretty bad for John Fox to throw away an entire offseason of practice and chemistry-building, so I suppose we just have to roll with these punches.

I shudder to think what Peyton Manning has done this week to prepare coming off a game where he admitted that "he stunk". I am fully expecting a blowout today. All signs point in that direction.

Prediction: Broncos 48, Raiders 17.
