OAKLAND, Calif. http:///...hoes-pink-white.html . -- Playing in high-profile games is old hat for the Denver Broncos after two trips to the Super Bowl the past three seasons and plenty of other opportunities to play on the NFLs biggest stages.Its a new experience for the Oakland Raiders, who have spent more than a decade at the bottom of the standings and far from the limelight of hyped primetime games.For the first time since 2006, the Raiders (6-2) have an opportunity to play on the NFLs premier Sunday night stage when they host the Broncos (6-2) on Sunday night in an AFC West showdown.I think what we recognize as an organization is as you become relevant, as you play good football, youre going to have more of these opportunities, coach Jack Del Rio said.This is the natural progression in building a good football team. We should expect to be in these games. Were going to expect to win these games. Then were going to move forward and have more of these kinds of games.The game offers an intriguing matchup with Derek Carr and Oaklands high-powered offense that is coming off a record-setting performance in last weeks 30-24 overtime win at Tampa Bay facing Von Miller and the leagues most dominant defense.Adding more juice to the matchup is the fact that these teams are longtime rivals with a history of playing in big games.Weve never liked the Raiders, safety T.J. Ward said. Its always come in the same way, regardless of what their record is. Its just a dislike we have for them. And thats not going to change.Here are some other things to watch this week:LUXURY CARR: In his third season as a pro, Carr has made significant strides and is now considered one of the top quarterbacks in the league . Carr threw for a franchise-record 513 yards last week and joined Y.A. Tittle and Ben Roethlisberger as the only players to throw for at least 500 yards and four touchdowns in a game without an interception.Its still kind of surreal and I dont think it will be real to me until Im done playing and I can kind of look back, Carr said of the accolades.TURN IT OVER: The Broncos are tied for the NFL lead with 16 takeaways this season, leading to a league-high 80 points on the ensuing drives. Denver has won 27 straight games when winning the turnover battle, including last year in Oakland when Chris Harris 74-yard interception return in the fourth quarter turned a possible go-ahead drive for the Raiders into a win for the Broncos.MACK ATTACK: Raiders edge rusher Khalil Mack had his best game ever the previous time he faced the Broncos. Mack had five sacks that game, including one in the end zone against Brock Osweiler that led to a safety in Oaklands 15-12 win . Osweiler is no longer in Denver and the Broncos have two new tackles in Russell Okung and Donald Stephenson. Mack is hitting his stride of late with four sacks the past three games after recording just one the first five weeks.The guys a monster, teammate Bruce Irvin said. He wreaks havoc every week and he has to be accounted for. Its that time of year where hes about to get it rolling. Its really exciting to see.COOP AND CRAB: The Raiders have one of the leagues most dynamic receiving duos in Amari Cooper and Michael Crabtree. Cooper is third in the league with 52 catches and 787 yards receiving, while Crabtree is tied for the league lead with six TD catches and ranks fifth with 47 catches. The Broncos counter with the leagues top secondary , led by cornerbacks Aqib Talib, Chris Harris Jr. and Bradley Roby.I feel like they have two good receivers. I dont feel they have two elite receivers, Ward said. So, we have two elite corners. We have three elite corners, and thats their job. So, I think well be all right.CLEAN IT UP: The Raiders are coming off a record-setting performance theyd like to forget. Oakland committed an NFL record 23 penalties last week in Tampa Bay for 200 yards. The Raiders are on pace for 172 penalties this season, which would break the record of 163 the franchise set in 2011.Were not going to dwell on it, Del Rio said. Were not going to spend any more time than is necessary to make the corrections, and then we move on.---AP Pro Football Writer Arnie Stapleton in Englewood, Colorado, contributed to this report---AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP-NFLhttp:///...mson-749490-016.html .J. Ellis hit two-run homers and the NL West champion Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres 4-0 Saturday night. http:///...undy-136046-666.html . Spiller left Week 3s 27-20 loss to the New York Jets with a thigh injury, but fully practiced with the team all week and expects to be ready to go on Sunday. http:///...e-colorful-gold.html . They were putting most of their energy into a record-setting offensive display. Alex Hales, Englands opening batsman, has apologised for his teams slow over-rate during the third Test against Pakistan, by giving a disgruntled fan a partial refund on his match ticket.Alexis Fuller, who attended the third days play at Edgbaston, contacted several players on Twitter to ask for a 10% refund, after it had been pointed out by Michael Vaughan, the former England captain, that only 81 of the days prescribed 90 overs had been bowled.I want 10% of my money back, Fuller wrrote. http:///...oes-black-white.html. Wouldnt go to football and find it ended after 80mins.Hales, who was unbeaten at the close on 50 not out, following an unbroken 120-run stand with Alastair Cook, replied saying: ok DM me your bank details Ill do it now.The fan later posted a picture on social media that he claimed showed a transaction of £4.10 from Hales into his account. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
