Denver Broncos right guard Chris Kuper has been downgraded to questionable for Thursday night's game at Oakland with a sprained ankle. Kuper was listed as probable during the week but was downgraded Thursday morning. Manny Ramirez would replace him in the lineup against the Raiders if he can't play. Kuper is the Broncos' top offensive lineman, but he's made just six starts this year. He missed the first four games with a broken forearm and missed two other games with a sprained ankle. The Broncos will be without their top tackler, weakside linebacker Wesley Woodyard, who stayed back in Denver with a sprained left ankle. D.J. Williams is expected to start in his place with rookie Danny Travathan also getting some snaps in Woodyard's absence. --- Online: http://pro32.ap.org/poll and http://twitter.com/AP-NFL

Broncos 26, Raiders 13: Instant Reaction

Running back Knowshon Moreno had a big night. Big Pete provides some post-game thoughts on tonight’s game… Has a complete and utter domination by one team over another had such a close score? This felt like a 50-7 football game, yet there we were, giving the Raiders hope when there really was none. Like I said in my nit-pick article, we need to crush the souls of our opponents...

Brandon Stokley is active for game against Raiders

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...

With Leather’s Watch This: Lo Thine Fantasy Gods, We Beckon Ye For Peyton Manning

Earlier this week, in the Fantasy Football Support Group post, I broke down the strange, new curse that is the Thursday Night Football QB conundrum. Basically, with very few exceptions, quarterbacks – and a lot of stars in general – have been terrible on the NFL Network this season. As I finished writing that, something horrifying dawned on me – I have Peyton Manning on Thursday...

State of the AFC West: Week 14 Edition

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 [...]
