After falling on the road 22-20 to the Chicago Bears last weekend, the Oakland Raiders return home Sunday to take on the Denver Broncos at O.co Coliseum.

Kickoff is scheduled for 1:25 p.m., but before the Raiders try to notch their first divisional win, let's get you caught up on the week that was.

Raiders Prepare To Open AFC West Schedule

The Oakland Raiders return to the friendly confines of O.co Coliseum Sunday for a Week 5 matchup with the Denver Broncos.

Leading into their first divisional game, Raiders.com took a look at three matchups that will be critical in determining the end result of the contest.


Sebastian Janikowski Closes in on Franchise Record

Sebastian Janikowski is one of just 16 players in NFL History to total 1,600 points; he has made 13 game-winning field goals; he has totaled 48 field goals over 50 yards; and Sunday, he will officially move into first place on the Raiders' all-time games played list.

As it stands now, Janikowski and Hall-of-Fame wide receiver Tim Brown share the distinction, with each having played 240 games for the Silver and Black, but come Sunday, the kicker with the booming leg will have the mark all to his own.


Raiders in the Community

The Oakland Raiders have partnered with the American Cancer Society once again in 2015 to host the second annual Evening with the Raiders at the Oakland Raiders Alameda, Calif., facility in conjunction with the NFL's Breast Cancer Awareness Initiative.

Monday evening, 17 breast cancer survivors, each with a guest, were welcomed to the facility and in addition to sharing dinner, were given a tour of the Raiders facility and received gifts from the players in attendance, including wide receiver Rod Streater who has a personal relationship with breast cancer.
