Denver (4-3) at Oakland (5-1)

Time: 9 p.m., chs. 2, 7.

Line: Raiders by 5 1/2 .

Outlook: The Broncos have beaten the Raiders seven consecutive times. Now, the Raiders have a chance for revenge. That said, the Raiders are notorious for missing tackles and blowing assignments - are you listening, Anthony Dorsett? The Broncos have yet to settle on a No. 1 running back. Mike Anderson started against Oakland last season and ran for 187 yards.

The pick: Oakland. The Raiders have too many offensive weapons for Denver to contain.
