Fingers in the remote control. Switch from Thursday Night Football imminent.
Thurs., December 6, 9-3 Denver Broncos at 3-9 Oakland Raiders – For fantasy eyes only
The marketing trolls at the NFL Network are working overtime to promote tonight's Thursday Night Football contest between the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders.
