The Oakland Raiders (4-6) will be looking to hand the Denver Broncos (3-7) their longest losing streak since 1967 when the club lost nine straight. The once might Broncos have come unraveled over the last six games.
And with no end in sight, Vance Joseph fired offensive coordinator Mike McCoy and elevated Bill Musgrave to the position. A day later news broke that Paxton Lynch would be the starting quarterback in Denver.
Now we’ll get to see how that all plays out.
Kickoff is set for Sunday, November 26, 2017 at 2:25 p.m. Mile High time at Oakland-Alameda Coliseum in Oakland, California.

The Broncos opened 5.5-point underdogs to the Raiders, but that was before McCoy being fired and Lynch being named the starter. And also before the Raiders fired a coordinator of their own in Ken Norton Jr. who was running the defense. The line now stands at a 4-point advantage towards Oakland.
Joseph alluded on Thursday that Lynch would be encourage to take off and run with it. They want him to play his style of football and do whatever it takes to win.
“You don’t want Paxton to drop back, go through his progression and kind of just hold the ball and kind of sit there,” Joseph said. “He has legs, so take off and run. Don’t become a stiff pocket passer when you’re not that guy. If you have legs, use them. I’m looking forward to watching him on third downs. If it’s not there, just take off and run and see what happens.”
The Broncos will not lose out. With six-straight losses, you have to believe this veteran team is going to come out and play like its the Super Bowl. The only thing that will shut up the critics is a victory on their belts. The first in a long time. And I think it starts this week.
Prediction: Broncos 20, Raiders 16.
