Hey, we're all in this together, remember (#SilverAndBlackLivesMatter)

1:49 PM - Alright, you fucks, kickoff is at 4:25 PM Eastern

1:49 PM - The Raiders head into this game 4-6 while the Broncos are 3-7. 

1:49 PM - Raiders cornerback David Amerson is STILL out of action. The following players are listed as questionable for Oakland: linebacker Cory James, guard Gabe Jackson, and wide receivers Johny Holton and Cordarrelle Patterson.

1:50 PM - And on the other side of the field, here's the injury report for the Broncos: defensive end Adam Gotsis, defensive tackle Domato Peko, tight end Jeff Heurman, linebacker Shane Ray and receiver Emmanuel Sanders are all listed as questionable.

1:51 PM - The over/under is set at 41 and Vegas has the Raiders as -3.5 favorites.

1:52 PM - The relevant offensive and defensive stats are below:

1:53 PM - ESPN'S Football Power Index gives Oakland a 70.4 percent chance to win today's ball game. Alas, the Raiders haven't exactly been stellar at home - defending their turf (which includes last week's "home game" in Mexico City), Oakland is 2-3. However, it's still better than the Broncos' away record - they're 0-4 on the season outside of the state of Colorado.

1:54 PM - I'll be back around 4 p.m. See you then, kids.

4:05 PM - Alright, kickoff will be in just a couple of minutes. Amazingly, the Raiders can pull within one game of the Kansas City Chiefs by chalking up a W this afternoon, following K.C. dropping their 1 p.m. game against Buffalo 16-10.

4:12 PM - Update: all of the Raiders players listed as questionable earlier this afternoon WILL play. Amerson, however, is still going to be sidelined.

4:13 PM - Of course, the big story in this game is Paxton Lynch's debut for Denver. It's not like he can play any worse than the guys who have been starting - I mean, the Broncos aren't on a six game losing streak for nothing.

4:17 PM - Oh, and I wouldn't be betting on this one: both teams this season have been TERRIBLE against the spread. The Raiders are 3-6-1 while the Broncos are 2-7-1.

4:27 PM - Raiders get the ball first.

4:28 PM - Third and four for Oakland already. Incomplete to Roberts. Time to punt.

4:29 PM - The Denver return man goes down at his own 20.

4:30 PM - C.J. Anderson runs for four.

4:34 PM - Lynch runs for four.

4:35 PM - Second and six. Chris Harris of the Broncos is walking off the field.

4:36 PM - Lynch runs it up the gut for four. Holy shit, Michael Crabtree just Bill Goldberg slammed Aqib Talib down the sideline and now they're having an honest to goodness fist fight on the field.

4:39 PM - We've got dueling brawls on TWO spots on the field. Like, punches and shit are getting thrown for real. Crabtree and Talib are both thrown out of the game. And Gabe Jackson is tossed for running into a referee.

4:41 PM - Chris Harris is back in the game. And Roberts hauls in a 20-yard pick up on third and 15.

4:42 PM - Washington runs for two, maybe three.

4:43 PM - Lynch runs for about seven.

4:43 PM - Third and one. Lynch gets driven behind the line. Time to punt.

Well, it may have taken a year, but he FINALLY got revenge on Aqib Talib for stealing his gold chain.

4:47 PM - Broncos take over around their own 20. Janovich runs for about 20 yards. A flag is down. It's holding against Denver. 

4:48 PM - First and 20. This is like The Longest Yard or Blitz: The League in real life. Nobody can play football worth a fuck, but at least they know how to fight like motherfuckers.

4:49 PM - Third and 12. The blitz is on and Lynch just dumps it off behind the line of scrimmage.

4:50 PM - Shit, I haven't even brought up the fact Bill Musgrave (the Raiders O.C. last year) is calling the shots for the Broncos' O this week. 

4:51 PM - Looks like the Raiders will take over damn near around midfield on their next possession.

4:52 PM - Lynch hit behind the line. A flag is down - roughing the passer against Denver.

5:01 PM - Second and six. Lynch runs to move the chains. Paxton Lynch, that is. Not Marshawn.

5:01 PM - Paxton has the worst mustache you've ever seen in your life, by the way. The back gets three on the first down run.
