NFL: Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos will open the 2019 regular season on the road against the Oakland Raiders in the second of the two Monday Night Football games the NFL has in Week 1.

The Broncos-Raiders rivalry has a long history. One which has seen the Broncos climbing out of a hole for decades, inch by inch, they have closed the gap to just 53-64-2. That, after starting their history 6-26-2 leading up to the Broncos Super Bowl appearance in 1977. In recent history, it has been all Broncos who have amassed a 33-15 record since 1995.

That included an opening day Monday Night Football slaughter of the Raiders in 2008 that saw Jay Cutler throw for 300 yards and two touchdowns, while Eddie Royal snagged 9 catches for 146 yards and a touchdown of his own.

Let’s hope for another hilariously bad performance from the overhyped Jon Gruden Raiders in 2019.
