Moving into November, the games take on a heightened level of importance and Sunday night’s NFL game of the week between the Broncos and the Raiders is a massive, in-division battle which will surely have huge implications at the end of season. With that in mind, let’s jump a little more in-depth into the week 9 game of the week.
Offense vs. Defense
The Broncos and Raiders took different paths to 6-2. While Denver has leaned on their well-known defensive prowess (giving up just 301 yards per-game), Oakland has seen their offense soar with Derek Carr and have won many of their games with late-game offensive magic (averaging 401 yards per-game). The NFL game of the week could end up being a game where whichever team controls the style of play ends up coming out on top.
Old vs. New
While 6-2 starts are nothing new for the Broncos (this is their fourth-straight season starting 6-2, or better), it is uncharted territory for the Raiders, who haven’t started 6-2, or better, since 2001. The excitement should be at an all-time high in Oakland Sunday night for the week 9 game of the week as the Raiders try to turn the corner and push down their division rival who has dominated the NFC West in recent history.
