The Oakland Raiders beat up on the Jaguars last week in a 19-9 win, but face an entirely different beast this week in Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, who are looking like early Super Bowl favorites after their hot 2-0 start.
Running back Darren McFadden had a big day during the Raiders' win over the Jaguars, rushing for 129 yards and avoiding, at least for another week, his annual injury problems. Quarterback Terrelle Pryor had a solid day on the ground as well, racking up 50 yards a week after piling up 112 in a loss to the Colts.
Pryor will need to prove he can move the ball through the air if he hopes to hang with Manning and the prolific Broncos offense, however. After destroying the Ravens in Week 1, Peyton gave similar treatment to the Giants and little brother Eli last Sunday and already has nine touchdowns and over 700 yards through two games. He'll have to continue on without left tackle Ryan Clady, who was lost for the season against New York.
