Week 5: at Oakland Raiders
All RB vs OAK
Mark and Joe say: Tough matchup. This is a storied AFC West rivalry which is always a hard-fought affair. At running back, the Broncos have a muddle going on now that they are mostly operating out of the pistol formation - Ronnie Hillman has been consistently out-producting C.J. Anderson under Gary Kubiak's regime this year, with 11/103/1 rushing and 1/5/0 receiving for Hillman last week vs. Minnesota and 11/43/0 rushing with 1/27/0 receiving for Anderson - this situation has become a 1A/1B situation with both backs heavily involved in the mix. To date, Hillman has 39/191/2 rushing and 2/8/0 receiving, while Anderson has handled 43/117/0 rushing with 7/57/0 receiving.
The Raiders' rush D is ranked 11th in the NFL averaging 93.2 yards allowed per game, with three rushing scores given out over four games played. Chicago manged 28/98/0 rushing vs. Oakland last week, while Cleveland only posted 14/39/0 on the ground two games ago.
This is a tough matchup for the Broncos' backs as they travel to the Black Hole on Sunday.
