Derek Carr was 20-of-24 with 199 yards and an interception in the first half in Monday's loss to the Rams, but he was only 9-of-16 for 104 yards and two picks in the second half. Still, Jon Gruden has full confidence in his quarterback although the Raiders need to find a deep threat somewhere. They hope Martavis Bryant is the answer as they signed him this week after releasing him in preseason for fear of him getting suspended. He can play until an appeals process is completed. Carr's counterpart this week, Case Keenum, also threw three interceptions in Denver's 27-24 win over Seattle. Keenun finished 25-of-39 for 329 yards and three touchdowns. The Broncos benefited from Seattle's lack of a running game, however, Oakland got 95 yards on 23 carries led by Marshawn Lynch with 41 yards on 11 carries. Denver is 2-10-1 ATS its last 13 games and 1-4-1 ATS its last six home games. Also, the Broncos are just 2-6-2 ATS their last 10 games after a win. Look for Oakland to cover the number, so play the Raiders.
