Broncos vs. Raiders

cbssportsline.com

TIME: 04:05 P.M. EST

VENUE: Invesco Field


Since they last met the Oakland Raiders, the Denver Broncos have gone from surprising division leader to a team just trying to hang on to a wild-card berth.

Another strong performance Sunday against the visiting Raiders, however, would move the Broncos a step closer to ending a four-year playoff drought.

Denver fired veteran coach Mike Shanahan, who led the franchise to its only two Super Bowl titles, in part because of last season's disastrous finish following a 3-0 start, which included three straight losses in December.

The Broncos turned to 33-year-old Josh McDaniels and they got off to another strong start by winning their first six games, including a 23-3 victory in Oakland on Sept. 27.

With injuries piling up once again, Denver is scrambling to avoid another late swoon.

The Broncos had seemed to buck that trend with back-to-back wins, but that run ended with a 28-16 defeat last Sunday at unbeaten Indianapolis - Denver's fifth loss in seven games.

Despite those losses, Denver (8-5) leads the AFC's wild-card race by one game over Miami, New York, Baltimore and Jacksonville. The Broncos still have a faint chance of catching San Diego in the AFC West but face a two-game deficit.

A loss this week and a Chargers win put a division title out of reach.

"We all understand where we're at," McDaniels said. "At the beginning of the season, we wanted to put ourselves into a position at this point to be able to play in the postseason. We've done that. Now, our urgency has to go up along with the rest of the league's. We can't take any days off (or) any plays off."

The Broncos could use a strong performance from Brandon Marshall and quarterback Kyle Orton as they're potentially facing a short-handed backfield. Last season, Denver used seven different running backs, none playing more than 12 games.

Correll Buckhalter could sit out after leaving last week's game with an ankle injury, and LaMont Jordan is recovering from an ailing back. Knowshon Moreno, who leads the team and all NFL rookies with 837 yards, also has a banged-up ankle.

However, fullback Spencer Larsen could return after injuring his back on the opening kickoff last week and could pave the way for Peyton Hillis to get more carries, especially if Moreno is limited.

With a record-setting performance, Marshall nearly helped Denver rally from a 21-point deficit against the Colts, setting an NFL mark with 21 receptions for a career-best 200 yards and two touchdowns.

However, he's failed to top 84 yards in six career games against the Raiders (4-9) and had five catches for 67 yards in the first meeting this season.

The Broncos chose to rely more on the run in their Sept. 27 victory with Buckhalter gaining 108 yards on 14 carries and Moreno adding 90 on 21 attempts. Marshall, however, opened the scoring with a 2-yard reception, one of his career-best nine touchdowns this season.

Denver also intercepted Oakland quarterback JaMarcus Russell twice and sacked him three times, but the Raiders will turn to Charlie Frye after Bruce Gradkowski tore the MCL in both of his knees in last week's 34-13 home loss to Washington.

"As the coach I want to do what I think is best for this team, and that's Charlie Frye," coach Tom Cable said. "It gives us the best opportunity to win. You watch Charlie every day and his preparation, he just certainly deserves the opportunity."

After taking over for the beleaguered Russell on Nov. 22, Gradkowski was 2-2 as a starter, leading the Raiders to comeback wins over Cincinnati and Pittsburgh.

Frye, playing for his third team in three seasons, was 19 of 33 for 149 yards, one touchdown and one interception in his only game against Denver, a 17-7 defeat for Cleveland on Oct. 22, 2006. He hasn't thrown a pass during the regular season since Oct. 12, 2008, while playing for Seattle.

The Broncos are searching for their 23rd win in 30 matchups against the Raiders since their return to Oakland in 1995. They have won 11 of 14 home meetings in that span.

The Raiders, however, snapped a three-game skid at Invesco Field with last season's 31-10 victory. Oakland's Darren McFadden rushed for a pair of touchdowns, and Hillis had the Broncos' only TD.

Josh McDaniels On Raiders QB Charlie Frye

Broncos coach Josh McDaniels told Bay Area reporters by conference call he worked out Frye for the Patriots before the draft.

“He’s a mobile quarterback, not unlike Gradkowski in terms of his ability to get away a little bit and create some plays with his legs, or keep some plays alive by moving out of the pocket,” McDaniels said. “So, we’re definitely going to be ready for both, a pocket passer and a guy that can move and do some things with his legs.”

Charlie Frye is so weak, plus Oakland's ground game has been non-existent lately. If I was betting money I'd take Denver.........

Heyward-Bey out for Sunday's game vs. Broncos; Will miss 3rd straight game

Raiders coach Tom Cable says Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) is "doubtful" to play in Week 15.
With three games left, DHB's season could potentially be over after catching just nine passes for 124 yards and one touchdown in 11 games.

The No. 7 overall pick has made no obvious progress since going down in Week 12.Raiders coach Tom Cable says Darrius Heyward-Bey (foot) is "doubtful" to play in Week 15.

dont worry about him, worry about murphy (who got robbed by a 21 carries to get what was it 80 something yards??) shiliens and higgins. we re gna stop that run. only way you guys win is if raiders dont make an adjustment to denver lining up their receivers w our linebackers.
