LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Tonightâ€™s Broncos vs. Raiders 2012 game (live score below) will deliver an unbalanced pairing for Thursday night NFL action. The Broncos come into tonight’s game with a 9-3 record, while the Raiders start with a 3-9 record. As fans wonder what channel is the Broncos vs. Raiders 2012 game on tonight, the question also remains if the Raiders have a chance to win tonight against Peyton Manning.
Broncos vs. Raiders 2012 channel confusion returns this Thursday night like most NFL games that evening. As fans wonder what channel the Broncos and Raiders game is on tonight, only the NFL Network has the answer. The NFL Network solely will be broadcasting the game this evening December 6, 2012.
The game which kicks off at 8:20 pm EST airs exclusively on the NFL Network. Officials tell news that fans can catch the Raiders game tonight in the U.S. on DirecTV channel 212 and on Dish Network channel 154. For Canadian viewers, the Saints game will air on Shaw Direct and Bell TV.
Prior to tonight’s game, the Raiders have won only two games at home, while the Broncos have only lost two games on the road. Both Peyton Manning and Carson Palmer have delivered impressive numbers this season, buy Palmer has been plagued by far too many interceptions.
Manning has a sixty-eight percent completion currently, while Palmer has sixty-one percent. Both quarterbacks have passed over three thousand five hundred yards this season and have more than twenty touchdown passes. But the difference is on interceptions, with Manning giving up nine and Palmer giving up thirteen.
The difference is also evident on receiving. The Broncos have sixteen touchdown receptions from their two leading receivers, Thomas and Decker. Oakland has only ten from Myers and Moore.
On rushing, the situation is not much better. Denver’s McGahee and Hillman have five touchdowns rushing this season compared to McFadden’s two.
Coach John Fox told the Broncos news website before tonight’s game “We always say people remember what you do in December. So that’s what we have ahead of us. We’ve got a division game coming up. Hopefully, we get to 5-0 in the division. There’s a lot to play for. We’ll see where that leads us.”
Oakland, however, believes that there is never adequate preparation in facing Peyton Manning. “You’re never really ready for Peyton Manning,” Oakland defensive coordinator Jason Tarver told news. “It’s a matter of getting on the same page and having enough coverage looks to hopefully slow down his progression and challenge guys in coverage, that’s what we need to do.”
