The Oakland Raiders head into their game on the road against the Denver Broncos with a head of steam following their upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers last week.
The Broncos' defense is struggling and is one of the primary reasons for the team's slow start to the season. Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning is seemingly always playing catch-up and that explains why the Broncos are both giving up and scoring 25.7 points per game through the first three games of the season.
The Raiders' offense is finding its stride after finally getting something out of the running game and running back Darren McFadden last week. The defense is giving up a whopping 29.3 points per game and will face a Manning-led offense that does not want to fall to 1-3 on the season.
The Raiders have won their previous four trips to Denver.
