The Denver Broncos have lost five of their last six games but are finally playing again in Colorado after trips to London and Nashville.

The Broncos are coming off a 17-10 loss to the Tennessee Titans, while the Las Vegas Raiders dropped to the Indianapolis Colts 25-20. Vegas and Denver are two of the worst teams in the NFL so far this season; the visitors come in at 2-7, while the Broncos are 3-6.

Denver’s league-worst offense may be down Jerry Jeudy in the contest, while Derek Carr may get benched. Neither team was expected to be out of the playoff picture by Week 11.

Oddsmakers currently predict that the Raiders will lose the showdown in a low-scoring affair. Experts say the total score will be around 41 points and expect Denver will take the game by two or three points.

The Broncos played the Raiders to a 32-23 loss earlier this season, the lone non-one-score game Denver has played. It was also the most points the Broncos have scored in any game, but they lost Javonte Williams for the year in the contest.

This will be the 125th matchup between the two franchises, which will tie for most between the Broncos and any other team (Denver has played the Chargers 125 times as well.) The Broncos are 53-69-2 all-time against the silver and black and have lost seven-of-their-last-eight showdowns, including five in a row.

The Broncos travel to Carolina next weekend.
