 Leave it to the Oakland Raiders to ruin the renewal of a great rivalry.
The Raiders have done so this year by being, well, awful. They've dropped five in a row, four of them admittedly to decent teams. But they were outplayed by Cleveland in Oakland last Sunday, a true indication of how far they've fallen.
Now the Broncos head to the Black Hole on Thursday night, already owning the AFC West title, but not likely to pull back any against the team Denver fans (and some players) always have loved to hate.
``It's tough,'' Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey said. ``Their fans are probably the rowdiest fans you'll see anywhere. It's tough, but you've got to go in there and block that out some kind of way, and the best way to do that is win the game or get up on them.
``I like it. I like playing on the road because I like people to boo us and I like to make them shut up, so to speak. That's just the way it is. I like winning on the road.''
Denver (No. 4 in the AP Pro32) is on a seven-game winning streak, longest in the league, and is a 10-point favorite to handle the Raiders (No. 31, AP Pro32).
Oakland struggles against any sort of dangerous offense, and with Peyton Manning getting more comfortable each week with his receivers, runners and blockers, the Broncos certainly rate as a threat anytime they have the ball.
They will have the ball a lot, particularly in the end zone.
