Raiders have luxury of catching Traveling Broncs on short week which factors heavily on tonite's spread outcome.
As for Vue's data , action,prime and new and improved comment ? play gimmicks, let's just say he's due.
For tonite's game, One fact stands clear to be considered : Peyton Manning is physically not 100 % fit and by now,
everyone should be familiar with Coach Fox's veteran's wise ways , knowing he will absolutely NOT take the risk of injury or fatiguing Peyton Manning via pass attack on short rest.
Would be like Girardi pushing Andy Petite on 2 days rest with playoffs around the corner.
Raiders have no defense ranked 28 th, allowing 131 yrds rushing per game , which will allow
Broncs to stick to a conservative,run and grind type of game plan allowing Denver's D ranked 3 rd in the league to control the pace vs Ineffective Raiders O that only could score 6 points @ Denver with a healthy Mc Fadden earlier this year.
As far as meaning of this game.It's truly unbelievable that anybody in this forum can even suggest this game has little importance for Denver.
Whoever believes such BS ,should really not be gambling, less it be quarter bets , lol , as some do.
Denver is tied for 2 nd seed with Ravens + Pats and will be hell bent to win out , securing first round bye ,doing everything to avoid playing @ Baltimore ,where Ravens DOMINATE. Ironically Broncs will be playing Ravens next week ,so this is a must win for them in order to try to secure HUGE advantage of playing @ Mile High and perhaps less importantly go for divisional sweep with only Chiefs standing in the way after Raiders tonite for perfect division record.
Could be wrong but Fox would be out of his mind to unleash Peyton towards back to back 300 + yrds on only three days rest.
Denver's D n' Running game will dictate clock while Raiders may hit 16 Pt plateau.
BRONCOS 26 RAIDERS 16
