ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (AP) - Try as they might, the Denver Broncos can't shake the memories of the Oakland Raiders' last visit. The 59-14 loss to their archrivals last Oct. 24 is among the low points in the franchise's 52-year history.
With the Raiders opening up the 2011 season at Mile High on Monday night, the Broncos have been watching snippets of that Denver debacle.
The film showed Zach Miller practically strolling in for a 43-yard touchdown that started the rout, Darren McFadden running for 165 yards and scoring four touchdowns, and the Broncos turning the ball over on their first two offensive plays as they fell behind 21-0 before running a play that didn't result in a turnover.
Both teams agree things will be different Monday night.
