Raiders vs Broncos: Instant Grades, Analysis for Denver

On Sunday afternoon, the Oakland Raiders are visiting Sports Authority Field at Mile High to take on the Denver Broncos.

This marks Denver's first divisional matchup for the 2012 NFL season, and the first of two yearly meetings with the Raiders.

After two straight losses to drop Denver's record to below the .500 mark, Denver will be looking for a huge win out of one of their most heated rivalries.

Peyton Manning faces a defense that has shown plenty of give early in the season, and Willis McGahee is rushing against a front seven that allows more than 100 yards per game in 2012. Aside from the two men in the backfield, Denver has receivers on each end with deep catch capabilities and an ability to thread the center of the field.

Denver has all its weapons at its hips, ready to draw, and Oakland is already reeling after barely moving past the Pittsburgh Steelers in a shootout in Week 3.

This could easily turn into another high-scoring game for both sides on Sunday afternoon. It will be up to the veteran leadership of the Denver Broncos to keep the home team in the lead.

Kickoff at 2:05PM (MST) on CBS.
