Oakland @ Denver
The Oakland defense is playing well and giving up just 261 yds/game so it will be interesting to see how they fair against the Denver offense that gets 462 yds/game. Another interesting matchup here is Oakland leads the league in rushing with 199 yds/game and Denver has the best run defense giving up just 41 yds/game. This all sets up an interesting game to watch but the Denver offense is too strong for Oakland and Peyton Manning can always find ways to lead his team to victory.
