2014 Game-by-Game: Week 17

Posted Jul 22, 2014

For a second consecutive year, the Broncos will conclude the regular season against the arch-rival Raiders.

  • WHEN: Sunday, Dec. 28, 2:25 p.m. MST.
  • WHERE: Sports Authority Field at Mile High.
  • TV: CBS.
  • SERIES RECORD: Raiders lead, 59-46-2 (Tied 1-1 in the postseason).
  • JOHN FOX'S RECORD: 6-2.
  • PEYTON MANNING'S RECORD: 7-2.
  • SERIES STREAK: Denver has won five straight overall, including the last two in Denver.
  • LAST TIME IN DENVER: Broncos 37, Raiders 21; Sept. 23, 2013. Peyton Manning threw for 374 yards and three touchdowns as the Broncos cruised past Oakland on Monday Night Football. Manning's first touchdown pass, a 2-yarder to Eric Decker, gave the Broncos a 7-0 lead 4:32 into the game, and they never relinquished the lead, building the bulge to 30-7 by the third quarter before Oakland tacked on a pair of touchdowns in the final 15:17. Oakland started Terrelle Pryor at quarterback, and he was effective at times, throwing for 281 yards on 19-of-28 passing and adding 36 yards on four carries, good for a 9.0-yard average. Although the Raiders were explosive, they weren't consistently productive; they went three-and-out on five of their first seven possessions.


NOTING THE GAME:

  • For the second consecutive year, the Broncos will close their season against the Raiders. This is the seventh consecutive season in which the Broncos will face an AFC West foe in Week 17. Denver is 2-4 in those games, having won the last two after losing four regular-season finales from 2008-11.
  • Broncos head coach John Fox will look to extend his success against former assistants this year. He is 7-2 overall, including 1-0 in the playoffs, against former assistants who became head coaches immediately after working under him: 1-1 against Jack Del Rio, 2-1 against Mike McCoy (1-1 in the regular season, 1-0 in the playoffs) and 4-0 versus Raiders head coach Dennis Allen.
  • The Broncos ran for 164 yards in their home win over the Raiders last year, their second-highest figure of the season. That pushed Denver to 16-1 all-time when rushing for at least 140 yards against the Raiders. The 37-21 win was the only game of 2013 in which returning running backs Montee Ball and Ronnie Hillman both rushed for more than 30 yards; Hillman gained 66 yards on nine carries and scored once, while Ball chipped in 61 yards on 11 carries.  
  • Oakland's reservoir of success in Denver has run dry since Peyton Manning's arrival. From 2008-11, the Raiders won four consecutive games in Denver. It was their longest winning steak in the Mile High City since 1974-77, and represented as many wins in Denver as the Raiders amassed in the 16 seasons from 1992-2007. Since Manning's arrival, the Raiders have lost twice by a combined 47 points.
  • Raiders quarterback Matt Schaub is 1-1 all-time at Sports Authority Field at Mile High as a starter, losing in 2010 and winning two years later.
  • If including playoffs, the Raiders are the most successful AFC West foe at Sports Authority Field at Mile High. Oakland is 6-7 all-time there. San Diego is 6-8, a tally that includes last January's division-round loss, and the Chiefs are 2-11.
