Brandon Stokley will play in Thursday nights game against the Oakland Raiders. Stokley missed the Broncos last game dealing with a wrist injury. His return to the team will obviously boost its offensive presence but will have a negative impact on targets for tight-end Jacob Tamme.
For the season Stokley has 36 catches for 449 yards and 5 touchdowns. Denver is a 10.5 point favorite playing in Oakland.

Since earlier in the week seemed to be “Nit-Pick Day”, here is a list of the things I nit-pick the Broncos about.
#1. We seem to always play down to our opponent’s level.
What is it with the Broncos for the...

Raiders head coach Dennis Allen mentioned he wants to give some of their younger talent including QB Terrelle Pryor and RB Taiwan Jones more work in the coming weeks, per Steve Corkran.
Oakland has maintained that they believe Pryor can be a quarterback in the NFL, but there are plenty of questions as to whether or not he’s capable of handling the position.
Jones, who played...
Oakland Raiders vs. Denver Broncos
The fantasy football playoffs are here, so its time to make each start and sit decision count. One wrong move and you could potentially be done for the year. There are some sure thing starts in this week’s divisional battle, but there are also a few puzzling ones that most owners will have a tough decision on: such as will Knowshon Moreno continue...
After overwhelming another overmatched division rival, Peyton Manning and the streaking Denver Broncos can turn their attention to much more meaningful opponents.
Manning threw for 310 yards and had his 30th touchdown pass of the season on the game's opening drive to help the Broncos roll to their eighth straight victory, 26-13 over the Oakland Raiders on Thursday night.

The Oakland Raiders looked like they had something going in their favor when they went to halftime losing only by six, after scoring a touchdown and stopping Peyton Manning’s two-minute drill. But then came the second half and the Broncos, with 13 unanswered points in the 3rd quarter, took control of the ballgame and never gave it back. The loss [...]
When I was looking at the AFC West coming into this season, I felt it was a division that was up for grabs. A lot of people were quick to pick the Denver Broncos simply because they were able to add one of the biggest free agents ever known in quarterback Peyton Manning. I wasn't one of those people to pick the Broncos because I had to see just which Peyton Manning we were going...
The Oakland Raiders on Wednesday strongly denied a report that club was negotiating to bring former coach Jon Gruden back to the club. The report, broke by Pro Football Weekly editor Hub Arkush on Tuesday, said that Gruden was discussing on the same day that current coach Dennis Allen was attending the funeral of this father. "... There are two people on this planet that...
Fantasy playoffs are on the line. It begins with the Thursday night football game. The red hot Denver Broncos meet the ice cold Oakland Raiders. If it wasn't Thursday night it would be a slam dunk.But it is a Thursday night game where the visiting team does not do so well. But this is not Tim Tebow's Broncos. This is Peyton Manning's team. Is there anyone you can...
The Raiders extended their losing streak to 6 straight and dropped their overall record to 3-10 with a 26-13 loss to the rival Denver Broncos.
The Raiders were large underdogs coming into the game but looked like they might be able to make it interesting as they went into half only down 6 points to the Manning-led Broncos.
They came out driving well in the second half, as...
I gotta be honest, Raider Nation. I’m running out of things to talk about, report, and analyze in the AFC West. It’s pretty simple, really. The Denver Broncos are good. The Chargers, Chiefs, and Raiders are not. The Broncos clinched the division title this past weekend and now set their sights on a 2 or 3 seed in the playoffs. The [...]
