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 depend on Thursday night?QuarterbacksCarson Palmer or Peyton ManningThe Denver defense ranks fourth in the league. They have recorded 38 sacks which is second in the NFL. Carson Palmer has been sacked 25 times. The Raiders' defense ranks 25th in the league. They will be going against Peyton Manning. Manning is the quarterback who has gotten you to the playoffs. Last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he had 242 yards and three touchdowns. For the season he has 29 touchdowns and 3,502 yards. If you are having flashbacks to last Thursday where the always trusty Drew Brees ended the night with no touchdowns ...

Six more divisional rematches as we get ready for the final four weeks of the regular season. With four playoff spots secure, the race is on.
A lot has changed in this league over the last decade or so, but one thing remains the same: Tom Brady and Peyton Manning are constantly in contention in December. And while Manning is in a new home now, that's again the case this year.

As I finished writing that, something horrifying dawned on me – I have Peyton Manning on Thursday...
Led by their resurgent superstar quarterback, the Denver Broncos have plenty to play for over the next four weeks even though they've already clinched the AFC West title.
The Oakland Raiders, meanwhile, are searching for any signs of progress amid their 10th straight season without a playoff appearance.
In the midst of their longest winning streak in 14 years, the visiting...
It’s fourth down. Your team is down by five. There’s four seconds on the clock. And it’s 14 yards to the end zone. Who do you want as your quarterback? Tom Brady? Peyton Manning? Andrew Luck? How many Colts fans would have picked our rookie quarterback at the beginning of the season? And now…after Sunday?
Andrew Luck is quickly becoming that quarterback. That quarterback...
Oakland Raiders (3-9) @ Denver Broncos (9-3) – 7:20 PM EST
The Oakland Raiders are going to need everything for them to go right to win this ballgame. Thanks to the horrible defense, this team doesn’t stand a chance in a season filled with disappointment. Perhaps the saddest thing is how Carson Palmer’s play is going unnoticed. If they had a decent defense, they would still...
