Once upon a time, the Broncos-Raiders rivalry was one of the NFL's best -- but no longer. Even after losing in humiliating fashion to the Patriots last week, Peyton Manning and company took a while to get focused on Oakland and wound up trailing 10-6 during the middle of the second quarter. But then ... More >>
The rivalry between your Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders runs so deep that our recent collection of Raiders suck memes only hints at the passions on both sides.

After gut-wrenching comebacks-that-weren't to the Falcons and the Texans, the Broncos needed a laugher -- and they got one.
