Kickoff from Sports Authority Field at Mile High will be at 1:25 p.m. PT, 4:25 p.m. ET.

114th regular-season meeting. Oakland leads the all time series 62-51-2.

Raiders wide receiver Michael Crabtree has been downgraded to doubtful ahead of Sunday's game at Denver, the team announced Saturday.

The Broncos have allowed just 203 rushing yards through four games - the fewest allowed by the Broncos to this point in the season in team history.

Crabtree has 13 receptions for 170 yards and three touchdowns this season. The Broncos should first focus on running the ball, wearing down the defensive front and setting up plays through the air in the process. If they can limit mistakes and force the Raiders to pass the football, they'll have control of the game and a good chance to be 3-1 at their bye.

But that kind of late-game magic isn't sustainable year-over-year, and this Raiders team might - just might - be worse than last year's team, particularly if the offensive line continues its current run of form. "You have a speed guy, you have a power guy or you have a guy that's overall just an athlete". Then they played the Washington Redskins.

The team will also include search and rescue professionals, as well as support staff providing medical care and logistics. Soldiers stand near parts of a collapsed school building during a search for students at the Enrique Rebsamen school .

We all became fans of Marquette King last season as he captured us with his vibrant personality and fun celebrations on the field.

So, yes, it's a big game beyond the usual significance of a home division game. Crabtree never talks to the media. Look for Talib to attempt something similar.

The Raiders lost 27-10 to the Washington Redskins last week and the game wasn't that close. Mack has 32 sacks since he was the Raiders' first-round pick in 2014. Carr was injured on the play.

Broncos quarterback Trevor Siemian completed 16 of 26 passes for 179 yards, one touchdown and a 94.9 passer rating. Last season Carr was tackled in an awkward way late in the season against the Indianapolis Colts, and broke his leg.

"He did a good job, a really good job", tight end Jared Cook said.

Quarterback Derek Carr doesn't think the offense is far away from getting their third-down issues fixed.
