Default Which NFL game is better?

Ok, this is a spin-off of my other topic (Opinions needed on NFL tickets)

Which Raiders game is better?

1) Raiders vs. Broncos
Oct 17

2) Raiders vs. San Diego
Nov 21

-Keep in mind, I'd like my dad to be safe...I've heard Broncos fans are a little crazy.

I thought you were trying to collect life insurance...

... I would think that the Broncos-Raiders game would make for a better game, but the Raiders would be more likely to win the game against the Chargers... that is, of course, assuming you want to go to a game where the Raiders win.

I have a hard time believing that Broncos fans are crazier than Raider fan.

Assuming Dad's a Raider fan, I'd think the other teams fans should be nervous....lol

Raiders-Broncos. No debate. The Raiders may lose, but this is a blood-n-guts hate-is-hate violence-to-all-Broncos-fans-who-cheer-for-their-team in NA Coliseum kind of game.

Unless Dad is a Broncos fan, Patricia, or even if he were a Broncos fan (with a relatively large inheritance to you in his will), this is the game that he should see. Raiders hate the Broncos. The place should be sold out (or nearly so) on gameday and will be buzzing with noises regarding the decapitation of Mike Shanahan and Jake Plummer...

On the other hand, the Chargers have the best running back in the league, and Tomlinson loves to run against the Raiders, though he almost never wins...

Yes, seeing LT would be a treat as well.

The Chargers game will be more meaningful for the Raiders, as they figure to be in a tight battle with San Diego for third place in the AFC West again this year, with the both the Broncos and Chiefs well ahead of both of them. It also figures to be closer than the Denver game, as Oakland will probably be about a 3 or 4-point favorite over the Chargers on November 21 while the Broncos will be a strong favorite in the October 17 game - at least 6 points (that's what the lines would have been if either game was being played on opening day, at any rate).

Default Raiders/Broncos

My dad loves the Raiders, he's been a devoted fan for 20 years.

To see them at the 50 yd line is a dream come true, so...

I think it will be the Broncos.

Thank you so very much for your input.

Your help made a difference and I'm sure my dad would thank you too.

ps. lol @ collecting life insurance.

So, you helped me with tickets. Now I need you to cross your fingers for his safe return!

The Raiders may be old,and the Broncos tough, but I think I may take them over the Broncos;especially with a six point spread.
