NFL: Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos Isaiah J. Downing-USA TODAY Sports

Game Preview

The Denver Broncos (6-8) have little to play for other than for pride on the road against the Oakland Raiders (3-11), especially with rumors circulating that there is an imminent regime change coming.

With this also being the final home game for the Raiders in the City of Oakland, we can expect an especially rowdy home crowd with a team that will be fired up to play for them. Both combinations tend to spell out doom for the Broncos under Vance Joseph.

With a win, the Broncos 2019 NFL Draft position would sink down into the late teens, while a loss will hold them around 12th overall. That’s what is at stake for the offseason, but losing to the Raiders is something we should never actually hope for.

Here is how to watch.

Odds

The Broncos held at 2.5-point road favorites over the Raiders all week, which means oddsmakers really don’t have a lot of faith in Oakland as a team or a franchise. Then again, who has a lot of faith this Denver team can beat anyone on the road? It’s an AFC West rival game, so it should be a close affair.

Matchup History

One reason to win, the Broncos are still behind in the all-time series with the Raiders thank to the 1960s with a 52-62-2 record against the Raiders in the regular season, which includes a 25-33 road record. The Broncos are also 4-6 all-time when playing games on Christmas Eve.

MHR Radio

In this weeks’ podcast, Ian and Adam talk about what’s next on the head coaching front for the Denver Broncos.

In Broncos & Bratwurst, meanwhile, Kevin wonders if the Broncos are on a road to nowhere under John Elway’s leadership.

To lose or not to lose, that is the question Jess, Laurie, and I argued over during Something Something Broncos. Losing helps the Broncos in April and screws the Raiders in April, while winning just feels good this week and has no bearing on anything. Laurie and Jess disagree.
