    Oakland has way MORE than a chance against Denver

    Pop quiz! When Den lost on Thurs, then the Pats AND Cincy lost on the following Sunday, all forfeited a golden opportunity to strengthen their playoff spots. THe question is, what ELSE did all 3 teams share in common aside from the loss?

    Anyone...

    Anyone...

    They all lost, as favorites, to divisional opponents.

    People CONSTANTLY underestimate the grind and fight divisional games often are.

    Now, a few points to consider when looking at Oak/Den:

    -Divisional game!

    -No Von Miller, the heart and mind of that D. The athletic cornerstone. Gone.

    -Terrell Pryor gets the start! He's been on the sideline for 5 weeks. Do I think he's a great QB? Nope. Good? Probably a stretch. He is, however, different from what Oakland has put on film for 5 weeks, and he's an athletic QB. When Denver just lost their most impactful and athletic defender.

    People have openly wondered if Oakland can "pull off a miracle". I wouldn't see it that way. I expect this to be a very close game. Denver has 3 losses, all by 7 or less, Peyton has a late pick in each of those losses.

    Oakland would LOVE to be the reason Denver loses the top seed, and would end another miserable season for them on somewhat of a high note.

    Well it's still Oakland. I'd love to see the broncos lose, but I think it's unlikely.

    Another record set by the Pats in jeopardy, Denver is only 18 points away from tying and then breaking the 2007 single season scoring record. Have to root for Oakland, but the record is likley gone.

         I wouldn't bet the house on it.

         Who cares...as long as the Patriots do what they need to do today.
