Each week we preview one matchup per game that is such a mismatch that it should make an impact on the game, either through its exploitation or by changing a team's plans to try to compensate.

One of the fiercest rivalries in the league is the centerpoint for this week's action. The falling Raiders try to turn things around against a rejuvenated Broncos offense in Monday Night Football's 500th game. The Raiders have lost their last four games, and their last seven games in Denver. On Sunday, the Chiefs and 49ers will play in what could become the highest scoring game of the season while the Jets and Dolphins continue their rivalry with a couple of quarterbacks who started the year on the bench.
