The Denver Broncos play the Oakland Raiders this weekend and now both teams will have to contend with two brand new coordinators. On Monday, the Broncos fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and on Tuesday the Raiders fired defensive coordinator Ken Norton Jr.

In a unique turn of events, two brand new coordinators will be charged with creating game plans against the unknown this week. Raiders head coach has a lot of familiarity with new Broncos offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave, but the Broncos also have a lot of familiarity with their former defensive coordinator Jack Del Rio.

Who knows which team has the advantage here. As with every game during the Broncos season, the outcome will likely be determine by how many times Denver shoots themselves in the foot.
