Continuing an AFC West theme that has pervaded most of the Monday night doubleheaders since ESPN acquired the rights to the MNF franchise in 2006, the Raiders will play at Denver on September 12 in prime time, according to Mike Klis of the Denver Post.
Though Klis doesn’t specify the kickoff time, it’s safe to assume that it will be the nightcap to the traditional twin bill.
In 2006, the Raiders hosted the Chargers. In 2008, the Raiders hosted the Broncos. In 2009, the Raiders hosted the Chargers again. Last year, the Chargers visited the Chiefs. All four games were played as the second half of a Monday night doubleheader.
