Julius Thomas not expected to play against Dolphins

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Until late Thursday night, it appeared Denver would need a win against Miami just to maintain a share of the AFCW lead.

But thanks to the Raiders, the Broncos now have a golden opportunity to pull a game ahead of Kansas City heading into the Week 13 rematch at Arrowhead.

And if the Lions pull off the upset at Foxboro, Denver could jump back into a tie for the best record in the AFC, although the Patriots do hold the head-to-head tiebreaker.

Emmanuel Sanders didn’t like intent behind hit that concussed him

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Rams safety Rodney McLeod was not fined for his borderline hit that left Emmanuel Sanders with a concussion.

The wideout agreed with the league's decision from a rules standpoint, but he didn't appreciate how McLeod approached the play:

In terms of targeting, I felt like the guy could have gone for the ball. I think his intentions the whole time were to deliver a blow. That's the only thing I am not too happy about.

Don’t ever feel guilty about enjoying a Chiefs loss

Good Morning, Broncos fans! Let's all continue to laugh at the Chiefs, shall we?

What happened last night truly could not have been timed better, what with the fawning and fluffing that had immediately preceded it.

That the Raiders nearly blew the game by acting like they'd never been there before (well, it wasn't really acting; they hadn't been there before) was the icing on top.

Raiders’ first win in 368 days comes at just the right time

Oakland (1-10) pulled off the shocker on Thursday night, knocking off the rival first-place Chiefs (7-4) in a 24-20 victory.

The win broke a 16-game losing streak for the Raiders; their last win came November 17, 2013, and that was against a Texans team amidst their own 14-game losing streak.

Derek Carr led Oakland on a late 80-yard scoring drive, throwing a game-winning nine-yard touchdown pass to James Jones inside the two-minute warning.
