Broncos Announce Team Will Be 'Standing Together' for National Anthem

"A great walk-through [Friday]". There won't be a lot of complicated schemes - just beat the person in front of you. "You can feel the urgency in this building". That said, they're just 2-6-1 against the spread in their last nine games versus AFC West opponents and are 1-4-1 against the spread in their last six games played inside the conference. But at the same time, Joseph didn't want his team to dwell on last Sunday's defeat. If they can't run the ball, that only helps (which needs all the assistance it can get) the Raiders tight end, and running back coverage defense. We saw through the first two games of the season what an offense looks like and is capable of when it has balance.

A "must-win" game? Yes, but that makes it no different than the others.

The team said its locker room is very diverse, but that being members of the same squad unite them as a team. So what are the keys to Sunday's contest? After watching the tape of the Redskin game, and seeing Raider quarterback Derek Carr under constant pressure (multiple interceptions, and sacks) the Bronco defensive front had to be saying: FEED ME!

Jared Cook, Seth Roberts and Cordarrelle Patterson could also see their roles increase in the passing game, as well as running back Jalen Richard.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree has been downgraded to doubtful for Sunday afternoon's game against the Denver Broncos, according to the injury report the team listed.

For the first time in his National Football League career, Chiefs linebacker Reggie Ragland (Bob Jones) was active for a regular-season game. Against the Bills, it was a different matter. Fantasy Tip: Denver's No. 4 overall defense ranks first against run after shutting down Melvin Gordon, Ezekiel Elliott, LeSean McCoy in first three weeks.

Denver rebounds at home while the Raiders fall further into a funk. Thirty-two Broncos knelt at Buffalo and almost all of the Raiders sat on the bench.

"Yeah, you know where he is every time you break the huddle", Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian said of Mack. Losing Crabtree could hinder the offense, but they are too good to be ruled out of any game.

Two years ago, Mack sacked Brock Osweiler five times in the second half. He's had seven sacks against them.

That's why we went back to re-watch tape of the AFC West's other elite pass rusher, to figure out how he can be limited by Denver this week in a must-win divisional game.
