To say the Denver Broncos first battle of the season against the Oakland Raiders was a massive disappointment may be an understatement. But now, in Week 17, Denver has an opportunity to even the ship on a division rival.
After coming off of the worst performance defending against the run, the Denver Broncos aren’t concerned with their ability to stop opposing offenses from running the ball, even without Derek Wolfe.
With the five-time defending division champs and Super Bowl 50-winning Broncos scrambling to retain as many of their key free agents as possible, the division's other three teams are dealing with their own priorities. The Raiders, with the second-most cap space in the league, shape up to be big spenders.
