Streaks, Statistics & Notes



Denver has won the last two meetings after losing the previous four.

Broncos’ seven-game winning streak is the longest in regular season for franchise since a 14-gamer in 1997-98 with John Elway at quarterback.

John Fox is the third coach since the merger to take over a team with a losing record and win divisions his first two years.

Broncos are tied with the Raiders for the most AFC West titles since the merger with 12.

Denver has outscored its opponents by 77 points in the fourth quarter.

Broncos WR Demaryius Thomas is tied for the NFL lead with 17 catches of at least 25 yards.

Denver LB Von Miller has 15 sacks, two shy of Elvis Dumervil’s team record set in 2009.

Raiders have lost five in a row for the first time since 2007 and have not led at any point in a game since early in the third quarter Nov. 4.

Oakland has allowed 59 plays of at least 20 yards, third worst in the NFL.

Raiders TE Brandon Myers tied the franchise record with 14 catches last week, and his 69 receptions are the most for a Raiders TE since Todd Christensen had 95 in 1986.

Oakland K Sebastian Janikowski kicked his 40th field goal of at least 50 yards last week, tied for third most all-time.

Raiders RB Darren McFadden could return this week from a sprained right ankle. McFadden has rushed for at least 100 yards in three of his last four games against the Broncos. Marcel Reece has been spelling McFadden.
