NFL Week Four Match Up: Raiders at Broncos

The Denver Broncos players say the days of kneeling for the national anthem are over- and beginning Sunday they will all STAND together

After two wins in the season, the Raiders faced a 10-27 loss to the Redskins last week. Despite 31 attempts in the game against Washington, Carr only threw for 118 yards, giving up two interceptions and four sacks for -22 yards. Quarterback Derek Carr played probably one of the worst games I've seen him play since donning the Silver & Black. Since the Raiders trailed the entire game against the Redskins, it's a given that they were going to end up throwing the ball more.

Denver (2-1) is also seeking retribution from a lackluster game last week that saw them get outplayed in Buffalo in a 26-16 loss. It also means the Broncos' defense will have to keep Oakland's offense off the field, as forcing punts and turnovers become even more of a focus in keeping Khalil away. RB Marshawn Lynch has 75 TD runs since entering NFL in 2007, second most in league.

Against an improved defensive front featuring Von Miller, Derek Wolfe, free agent Domata Peko and a blossoming Adam Gotsis, the three running backs combined for 84 yards on 40 carries for a 2.1-yard average and zero touchdowns. But they haven't had much success against the Denver secondary led by Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby.

Should he sit the game out, it will be the first regular-season game he has missed since the 2013 season when he was a member of the San Francisco 49ers. Wide Receiver Amari Cooper was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was a full participant in practice by Friday, whereas Crabtree has been limited in practice all week and is listed as questionable.

Allen was among the 29 former Alabama players who got on the field during the third Sunday of the NFL's 2017 season. The Broncos are on an urgent edge, and that can be a healthy thing. If you can't do that, you're not going to beat the Broncos, especially in Denver.




Both the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos lost their Week 3 games.

The statement comes a few days after Broncos executive John Elway - who led Denver to victory in Super Bowl XXXII in January 1998 - said he believes in standing for the anthem. I have a feeling this could turn into a shootout.

You can listen to the Broncos Radio Network or the Raiders Radio Network. "We wanted to make our point and it's done now".

More importantly (perhaps), the Oakland defense will need to be committed to stopping the running game.
