Tonight's game

Raiders (5-1) at Broncos (3-3)

Time: 9 p.m.


TV: Chs. 2, 7

Line: Raiders by 3


Injuries: Broncos: LB Glenn Cadrez (knee), DE Shane Dronett (knee) are out. DE Dan Williams (knee) is doubtful. LB Dante Jones (shoulder) is questionable. RB Aaron Craver (knee), LB Simon Fletcher (ankle), S Tim Hauck (shoulder), and WR Rod Smith (knee) are probable. Raiders: DE Nolan Harrison (back) is out. DT Jerry Ball (groin) and LB Greg Biekert (ribs) are probable.

Outlook: It's the first game for the Broncos' Mike Shanahan against the team he coached for 20 games in 1988-89 before being fired. The Raiders are first in the AFC in total offense and rushing, sixth in passing and fifth in total defense. In the two

games before last week's 37-3 romp, the Broncos had a total of 16 points. The Raiders have won 11 of the past 12 in this series, including the past six.

Vito Stellino's pick: Raiders 24, Broncos 14 -- Whether they're in Oakland or Los Angeles, the Raiders have a knack for beating

the Broncos.
