NFL SPOTLIGHT / WEEK 11

Tonight

OAKLAND at DENVER, TONIGHT, 6 p.m.

November 13, 2000|ROY JURGENS

* The line: Denver by 3.

* Story line: The Raiders bring a 4-0 road record into Mile High Stadium looking to avenge their only loss this season, 33-24, to the Broncos on Sept. 17. An Oakland victory drops Denver to 5-5 and solidifies the Raiders' grip on the AFC West. Denver has won the last six games of this rivalry.

* Key matchups: Running backs Terrell Davis and Mike Anderson against Oakland's front seven. Anderson tore through the Raiders for 187 yards earlier this season, and Davis is finally healthy, coming off a 115-yard game against the Jets. Quarterback Rich Gannon against Denver's front four. Gannon must make the most of each Raider possession. The Broncos sacked Gannon four times and intercepted two of his passes in the last meeting.

* Injury report: OAK--K Sebastian Janikowski (ankle, questionable); RB Tyrone Wheatley (ankle, questionable). DEN--None.
