Three weeks ago, the Denver Broncos had a 6-6 record and a path to make the playoffs based on a scheduled that included three losing teams in their final four games. But a road loss at San Francisco coupled by a home defeat to the Cleveland Browns last week have eliminated the Denver Broncos from the playoffs with a 6-8 record headed into Week 16. Denver’s offense let them down in the end as the team generated just 14 points against the 49ers and 16 points to the Browns. Team generated just 21.9 points per game on the season. 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. Gone was Amari Copper and their star pass rusher Khalil Mack. What was left was a team that generated last place results in a competitive AFC West division. The defense was as bad as season’s past. Oakland was 32nd and worst in rushing and scoring defense. Team surrenders 29.9 points per game. Head coach John Gruden is hoping that his in season rebuilding process will result enough talent from his first round picks in the draft to make this team a playoff contender again. Probably the biggest player under the microscope in their final two games is quarterback Derek Carr. The Raiders have an exit option to his contract at the end of the season. Carr has not thrown an interception in his past nine games.
