------------Welcome to the live blog of Raiders vs. Broncos-----------

Kickoff is less than 10 minutes away.

Join us in this live blog of the Denver Broncos versus the Oakland Raiders as kickoff is a little after 8:30 p.m. ET.

These two teams met in Week 4, the Broncos overwhelmed the Raiders 37-6.

The Broncos are already owners of the AFC West and they can thank Peyton Manning for this.

He is first in the league with an 81.1 QB rating. He ranks second in the NFL with a 68 percent completion percentage, fourth with 7.8 yards per pass and third with a 20+ touchdown to interception ratio.

The numbers on Manning are 3,502 passing yards, 29 touchdowns and nine interceptions.

The Broncos have done their best allowing teams 16 sacks. Keeping Manning on his feet is important for the Broncos since the QB is coming out of neck surgery.

Their defense has been better than last year as they are ranked in the top 10 in defensive categories. They are 10th in points allowed (20), 3rd in the league in total yards allowed (308), 6th in passing yards allowed (211) and 7th in rushing yards per game (96.4).

It is an uphill battle for the Raiders, but they have a pretty good quarterback in Carson Palmer, but the rest of the team has not responded, especially the defense.

To keep it simple, they have allowed the most points per game at 31.3.
