The Denver Broncos will look to get back on track when they take on the Oakland Raiders in week 10 action.
Denver ran into a New England team that is firing on all cylinders right now and came out of that contest with a 43-21 loss. Peyton Manning (438 passing yards and two touchdowns) was able to move the Broncos through the air, but the team could not get the running game going. New England’s defense held Denver to 43 rushing yards on 17 carries and intercepted Manning twice on the day. WR Emmanuel Sanders led the Broncos with 10 receptions for 151 yards.
At the halfway point of the season, Denver ranks 2nd in passing offense, 27th in rushing offense, and 3rd in scoring offense at 30.6 points per game.
The Oakland Raiders have played half of their games and have yet to record a win.

However, interim head coach Tony Sporano has this Oakland squad playing better.
