The Broncos are led by head coach Vance Joseph, quarterback Case Keenum, running back Phillip Lindsay and pass rusher Von Miller. Denver is coming off a Week 15 loss to the Browns and enters the game with a 6-8 record.
The Raiders are led by head coach Jon Gruden, quarterback Derek Carr, and tight end Jared Cook. The Raiders are coming in off a Week 15 loss to the Bengals and enter the game with a 3-11 record.
Owner Mark Davis is moving the Raiders to Las Vegas in 2020, and since the city of Oakland recently sued his team and the rest of the NFL over the move, he is looking for another venue for his team next season.
“I’ve spent five years playing in the stadium and we have people talking trash about it, but I love it,” said quarterback Derek Carr of the only home stadium he has known as a pro. “It’s ours. It has been fun, and the fact that it could be the last (game) is crazy. When that time comes, we’ll enjoy it.”
Head coach Jon Gruden routinely talks with the fans in the “Black Hole” behind the south end zone before games and after Oakland victories, which have been rare in this 3-11 season.
“I get emotional about it,” Gruden told reporters this week. “Hopefully, we get it all resolved to where we can continue to play here (next season). … It’s going to be a great atmosphere, Monday night, Christmas Eve, Denver coming to town. I get excited thinking about it
