  • Official Game Day Thread: Week 17: 2014 The raiders vs The Broncos

    Well here we are folks, the last regular game day thread of the year, but not of the season.
    We are in the post season... question is will we be playing next week or he week after?

    I hope everyone had a nice holiday, we needed it after the Bengals game. That game also cost me a Fantasy Championship. I trailed by Six points and had Manning and CJ on my team and Peyton throws the int at the end instead of the TD. Game over man... game over.

    Cincy had a good game plan to stop our pass rushers. Our oline struggled and Peyton threw 4 ints, some because he did not go through his progressions and read the D correctly. Special teams other than one return were god awful. It was a mess, even if he did throw for 300 yards. We had bad and dumb penalites and that Ref Bill Vinovitch that..... (fill in the blank) Let's hope that was our last bad game of the season.

    So now it comes down to the Raiders game. A win ans we get the 2nd seed. A loss and all heck breaks loose around here. A loss and a Bengals wins means we drop down to 3 and host San Diego or Baltimore. Let's hoe it doesn't cone down to that.

    Oakland has won a few games this year, they beat KC, 49ers and Buffalo. Carr has thrown for 20 TD while Peyton has 39. They have some fight in them and would like nothing better to end their season beating a division rival. They have nothing to lose and a loss helps there draft position, so it is win win for the Raiders.

    All time Broncos are 47-59-2 vs the Raiders. (24-31 on the road vs them)

    So how do we do in the 17 th game of the season. We are a pedestrian 5-5 in the last decade. Of the 5 wins 3 were at home / 2 on the road. Of the 5 losses 4 were at home 1 on the road. So we won 3 of 7 final home games... We did win the last 2 years vs Chiefs and Raiders. So if we don't beat ourselves we have a chance.

    Peyton has over 4000 yards, but the last 3 weeks we have ran more times than we tried to pass. Either we are trying to keep his arm fresh, or establish a strong run game for the post season. Either way we need the O-line to do better than they did on Monday. Raiders give up over 120 on the ground per game so we would be wise to run it. On the ground the Raiders rushing avg is about 80 yards per game. I don't think we will see the D give up an 80+ plus run this game

    Oakland started off strong against us in the first match up and then fell off. They have lost the last 6 times they have faced us. Let's make it 7 and take the week off

    I hope it is a good game, it shouldn't be a hard game for Denver, but upsets happen. They just better not happen this week.
    Win Lose or Draw As always please follow the COC, report any violations to the Mod Staff so they may respond. I hope everyone has a good Sunday, enjoys the game and has a Happy New Year. As Always GO BRONCOS!

                        If we can't beat the Raiders handily at home in week 17, Elway needs to do some serious evaluating.

                            I hope we go up big and get to play OZ a lot in the 2nd half and give Manning and some of our others a rest.
