Oakland Raiders (3-9) @ Denver Broncos (9-3) â€“ 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 doesnâ€™t stand a chance in a season filled with disappointment. Perhaps the saddest thing is how Carson Palmerâ€™s play is going unnoticed. If they had a decent defense, they would still be competing for a playoff spot, but they donâ€™t, Darren McFadden has been such a letdown and they canâ€™t seem to get any consistency from their wide receivers. Really, the key to the game for the Raiders is slowing down the Broncos offense, especially in the running game, where the plodding Knowshon Moreno is carrying the ball.

Oakland tailback Darren McFadden limped off the field with about six minutes left in the fourth quarter of Thursday night's game against Denver after twisting an ankle.Fantasy Spin:Just another day in the life of Darren McFadden fantasy owners. Living with his injuries is part of the "fun" of owning the oft-injured, slow-healing Raiders' running back.
According to multiple sources, the Oakland Raiders do not fear that the latest ankle injury suffered by running back Darren McFadden is nearly as serious as the one that kept him out for over a month. Still, considering that we are talking about a player as fragile as McFadden, and also considering that the injury did occur to the same ankle that forced him to miss the last four...
