Denver has six turnovers in its first three games, and opponents have cashed in on those giveaways, turning them into four touchdowns and a field goal that account for almost half (31 of 64) of the points surrendered by the Broncos so far this season. He can run, he has the balance and again, he has the power. "You see him and he's physical at the point", said defensive coordinator Joe Woods.

Marshawn Lynch hasn't been the Beast Mode, yet, as he's rushed for 76, 45 and 18 yards in three games since he came out of retirement.

They are also one of two teams who have yet to give up a rushing touchdown.More news: Buccaneers vs. Vikings live stream

If Watson or Green get beaten to the inside, Trevor Siemian could be in big trouble as there are few players as effective in closing down plays once they've created penetration. "This is going to be a good challenge for us, it's going to be fun".
This will be the 116th game between the Raiders and the Broncos.
