The offseason signing of Case Keenum did improve the team from last year but that wasn’t good enough to satisfy their fanbase and management. Rumors are flying that the Broncos are headed to a coaching change once the season is concluded. Denver passing game produces 229 yards per game ranking 19th in the league.

It has been a poor season for the Oakland Raiders. The team sits at 3-11 as they underwent several changes during the season in personnel.
