Denver Broncos vs. Oakland Raiders: 5 Storylines to Watch
Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos (12-3) visit the Oakland Raiders (4-11) in the final regular-season matchup for both teams in Week 17.

For the Broncos, this is an important game. It's simple—if the Broncos win, they're in as the AFC's No. 1 seed. If they lose and the New England Patriots win their game versus the Buffalo Bills, then New England becomes the conference's top seed with home-field advantage throughout the playoffs.

For the Raiders, it's another lost season in a decade of misery—2013 will mark the 11th straight non-winning season for Oakland. About the only reason the Raiders have to look forward to this game is playing the spoiler role versus their AFC West rivals.

The Broncos have a No. 1 seed to play for, while the Raiders have the opportunity to ruin Denver's opportunity at clinching the AFC's top seed. What are five storylines to watch in this Sunday's game?
