The Raiders and Broncos are going in opposite directions as the NFL regular season winds down.
Oakland (5-7) has dropped four of its last five games and is coming off a 34-20 loss to the Chiefs that dealt a crushing blow to its playoff aspirations. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr threw three fourth-quarter interceptions in the loss.
Meanwhile, AFC West-leading Denver (10-2) has won three in a row with Brock Osweiler at quarterback in place of the injured Peyton Manning. The Broncos can secure a playoff berth with a ninth consecutive victory over the Raiders when the teams meet in Denver on Sunday.
If the Raiders hope to pull off the upset, they’ll have to eliminate the turnovers that were their undoing in Week 13 against the Chiefs.
