NFL FREE PICK: Take the Broncos. Denver is coming off a tough home loss to Houston, 31-25. Oakland shocked Pittsburgh at home, 34-31. The problem for the Raiders is a defense that allows 264.7ypg in the air and 116.3ypg on the ground taking on Peyton Manning, Eric Decker, Demayrius Thomas and the rest of the explosive Denver Broncos. Denver will put up more of a fight than the Pittsburgh defense, that was worn out after a long trip from the East Coast and lacked the likes of S Troy Polamalu and LB James Harrison. The Broncos should be able to generate more pass rush pressure than the Steelers did.
