Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos Preview and Predictions

Josh Zerkle@JoshZerkleChief Writer IIISeptember 24, 2012

The Oakland Raiders come into this AFC West clash riding high after upsetting the Steelers 34-31. First-year head coach Dennis Allen won his first game, and Oakland now travels to face Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.

The Broncos are hungry for a win. They've lost two in a row, and a scary pattern is developing. They are falling behind early by a lot of points. The good news is Manning didn't throw any interceptions against the Texans. The bad news: His 300 yards and two touchdowns weren't enough to beat the red-hot Texans.

Will Carson Palmer continue his roll? Can Darren McFadden gobble up yardage against a tough Broncos defense? Finally, will Peyton right the ship in Denver and beat the Raiders?

Let us know in the comments below.
