Thursday October 8th, 2015

The undefeated Denver Broncos (4–0) will travel to California to face the Oakland Raiders (2–2) on Sunday in a battle of the AFC West’s top two teams.

The Broncos are led by a defensive unit that has given up a league-best 275.5 yards per game, and a second-best 17.3 points per contest. Denver’s strong defense has also picked up the slack for quarterback Peyton Manning’s slow start. Manning has a 80.8 passer rating and five interceptions through the first quarter of the season, which is his lowest rating since his rookie campaign in 1998.

Oakland’s defense has been less effective this season, ranking 31st in the league with 310.5 passing yards allowed per game. However, quarterback Derek Carr has been solid in 2015, completing 62.6 percent of his passes for 922 yards and seven touchdowns.

The Raiders will attempt to start 3–2 for the first time since 2011, when they finished with eight wins.
