2012 Game-by-Game: Week 4

Posted Jul 5, 2012

In week four of the 2012 season, the Broncos host the Oakland Raiders in their first divisional matchup of the year.


Week 4: vs. Raiders
Opponent o DATE: Sunday, September 30
o TIME: 2:05 p.m. MDT
o LOCATION: Sports Authority Field at Mile High
o TELEVISION: CBS
o OPP. 2011 RECORD: 8-8
o ALL-TIME VS. OPP.: 41-58-2

THE LAST TIME: The Broncos began last year's mesmerizing six-game winning streak with their first victory over the Oakland Raiders in more than two years.

Denver scored 31 second-half points and overcame a 10-point halftime deficit to defeat the Raiders on November 6, 2011 by a score of 38-24. The road victory put the Broncos just a game behind a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West. 

Running back Willis McGahee ran for 163 yards and two scores, while cornerback Champ Bailey made two interceptions to lead a defense that allowed just seven second-half points.

WHAT TO WATCH FOR:
The Raiders are the only opponent of the Broncos' first five that didn't finish the 2011 season with a winning record. The other four teams the Broncos will face before Week 6 had a combined 45 wins last year - and were all playoff teams.

Though the Raiders had the least success in 2011 compared with the Broncos' other early-season opponents, Oakland could be as much a challenge as any of the others. Both in history and in recent years, the Raiders have the edge, winning four of the rivals' last five contests.

KEY MATCHUP: Darren McFadden vs Denver's Front Four
McFadden was out with an injury the last time the two teams squared off. The Broncos won that matchup. The three matchups before that, Oakland won all three. In those games, McFadden ran for 165, 119, and 150 yards. The 2012 Broncos defensive line is revamped and restocked. The coaching staff on the defensive side of the ball has said they want to stop the run using only the defensive line, enabling the linebackers to blitz or play the pass. The Week 4 contest at home against the Raiders will be a great test to that expectation.

GAME NOTES: This will be the teams' 102nd time facing off...The Broncos are 21-27-2 against the Raiders at home...Denver will be facing their 2011 Defensive Coordinator Dennis Allen, who is now Oakland's Head Coach.
