2016 Broncos-Raiders Week 17: By The Numbers

Share/Bookmark

broncos_raiders

The Denver Broncos will be playing their 3rd overall and 2nd regular-season game on New Year’s Day this Sunday when they host the Oakland Raiders. Denver defeated the Raiders 20-17 in the 1977 AFC Championship Game to earn their first Super Bowl appearance.

The (12-3) Oakland Raiders have clinched a playoff berth and can capture their first AFC West division title since 2002 and secure a 1st-round bye with a win against the (8-7) Denver Broncos or a loss by Kansas City. Oakland can also earn the No. 1 seed and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a win and a New England loss.

Kickoff is set for 2:25 pm MST and the game will be broadcast by CBS (Broadcast Map link), which means another 4 hours of suffering through the worthless anecdotes of Jim Nantz, the worst play-by-play announcer in the U.S., the post-concussion nonsensical rantings of Phil Simms, the biased color analyst and the somewhat attractive, yet still inane sideline reporting of Tracy Wolfson.

These two teams have met on 112 previous occasions. The Broncos have a record of 49-61-2 against Oakland (Home: 24-29-2 / Away: 25-32-0) and the Raiders have a current 2 game win streak in the series. The last meeting in Week 9 at the Black Hole had Oakland victorious 30-20 on November 6th.
