The Wild and Wacky AFC West Division, of which the Denver Broncos are a proud participant, is getting crazier and harder to predict every week.
The Broncos face one of their most hated enemies, the Raiders, (whether they are waving the banner of Oakland, Los Angeles and now Las Vegas) this Sunday. This is a famous rivalry sparked even more by the wild feud between former Broncos coach Mike Shanahan and the late Al Davis (the former owner of the Raiders). The rivalry even hit home, with some diehard local Bronco and Raider buffs betting their own hair scalp on the outcome of the game.
Game time for the Dec. 26 showdown is 2:25 p.m., a great time for a hearty meal, a drink or two and a hopeful Bronco victory. In fact, beverages of choice may be a requirement for this Bronco viewing, a must-win if the Broncs want to compete in the AFC West, or even hold their heads high.
