The Denver Broncos and Oakland Raiders square-off in Denver’s first divisional game of the season as they look to improve to 2-0 on the season.

The Broncos will have a couple milestones to watch for in the game.

  • Owner Pat Bowlen and another milestone

Pat Bowlen can earn his 350th overall win as owner of the Denver Broncos with a Broncos win on Sunday.

  • Team defense

The Broncos are looking to hold their opponent to 300 or less net passing yards for the 36th consecutive game. That would be the longest streak by an NFL team since the Pittsburgh Steelers did it between 2010 and 2012.

Adam Jones needs 69 punt return yards to become the 39th player in NFL history with 2,000 punt return yards.

After collecting three sacks in Week 1. Von Miller needs one more sack to tie Leonard Little (87.5) for 48th on the NFL’s All-Time sack list.

The Broncos safety is seven tackles away from 400 tackles in his career.
