The main goal new head coach Jack Del Rio has set for the Oakland Raiders in 2015 is to have a chance to win the Division in the competitive AFC West. There will be some hefty challenges facing his new team, starting with last year’s AFC West Champion, Denver Broncos.

Ever since the arrival of Peyton Manning in Denver, the Broncos have cast quite a shadow over the rest of the AFC West. The future Hall of Famer has had some of the most productive years of his long career in a Broncos uniform, making his way back to a Super Bowl, and being the leader of an offense that had the most productive passing game in the history of the NFL. We all know Peyton Manning, we all know what he can do, and the threat he can pose especially to a young defense, but I want to look into the rest of the parts of his team and see what the Raiders are really up against in the 2015 season.
