The Oakland Raiders travel to Mile High to face the Denver Broncos in both teams' first interdivisional matchup of the season next Monday night.

The Raiders (1-1) are coming off of their first win of the season, a 19-9 defeat of the Jacksonville Jaguars in Oakland. Terrelle Pryor, Darren McFadden and a stingy Raiders' defense led Oakland to the victory. Pryor ran for 50 yards on nine carries while McFadden ran for 129 yards on 19 carries in the Raiders' shotgun and pistol-heavy offense.

The Broncos (2-0) enter Week 3 after pulling away from the Giants during the second half in New York in Week 2. A Broncos' lead of 17-16 late in the third quarter became a 38-16 Denver blowout after the visitors scored 21 straight points in a six-minute span.

The Broncos announced on Wednesday that Ryan Clady will miss the rest of the season due to a Lisfranc injury to his left foot that he suffered against the Giants, as he was placed on injured reserve.

Although the Broncos will be heavily favored in this AFC West matchup, it will a contest of two teams heading in different directions.

Following are a few things to look out for as the Raiders visit the Broncos in Week 3.
