Oakland Raiders vs Denver Broncos will see Peyton Manning in action on Sunday as the Broncos look to continue the form that saw them score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter against the Houston Texans in week 3. The game will start at 4.05 p.m. ET and can be watched online through live stream (details below).
Last week the Broncos looked to be half asleep at the start of the game against the Texans. Their offense looked lackluster and devoid of ideas for much of the opening exchanges. They could only muster 11 points from the first half of the game, but in the final quarter they suddenly woke up to storm to two touchdowns in a matter of minutes.
As the game wore on the Broncos passing offense gradually settled and found a way to navigate the Texans' elite defense. Even though their first half performance left some doubts, the way they continued pushing and eventually opened the floodgates in the Texans' defense will have the Raiders weary of their passing offense today.
The Raiders' offense is not as strong as the Texans' and they could struggle today if Manning and the Broncos turn the screw against them in the same way they did at the end against Texas.
Oakland's defense has allowed a massive 88 points through in its three games to date this season. On top of that the Raiders' passing attack has been atrocious, and is ranked just 26th in the NFL after week 3.
In week 3 the Raiders allowed Ben Roethisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers offense to throw 384 yards as well as four touchdowns, and at time the Oakland defense was all but absent from plays.
There will be no let up today as the Broncos have a passing offense comparable to the Steelers.
