Derek Carr out of surgery for broken right fibula

Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is sacked by Denver Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller during the first half of an NFL football game in Denver. Spoiler is an unfamiliar role for Von Mil

The Denver Broncos will play both their quarterbacks when they face the Oakland Raiders at Mile High on Sunday night, coach Gary Kubiak said on Wednesday.

And while it won't be fun for Oakland Raiders fans to watch, we got to see quarterback Derek Carr immediately react to an injury that probably ended his season.

A broken finger on quarterback Derek Carr's passing hand put a question mark behind the Oakland Raiders' postseason potential. The leg injury likely will sideline Carr for six to eight weeks, all but ruling him out for the rest of the season. His season-worst 43.1 passer rating was one of many lowlights in the 33-10 beatdown.

Backup Matt McGloin will start Sunday's road regular season finale against the Denver Broncos. Paxton is also going to play.

The Raiders can clinch the AFC West title and a first-round bye with either a win at Denver on Sunday or a Kansas City loss in San Diego.

Aaron Rodgers uses his legs to stretch lead
The Green Bay Packers have won four games in a row, thanks in large part to some outstanding play by Aaron Rodgers . The defensive standout has been relegated to a situational role the last two games because of the injury.

They will just have to do it with McGloin under centre instead of Carr. Latavius Murray leads the way with 777 yards and 12 touchdowns, but he's not the only option to carry the ball. McGloin is 1-5 as a starter, beating the Texans in his first career start, and his last start came in Week 16 of the 2013 season, when the Raiders finished 4-12. "So I think. I'll just leave it at that". A Swiss cheese offensive line that has allowed 97 quarterback hits, eighth-most in the National Football League, has put pressure on Siemian. "When we deactivated him earlier in the year, it gave him a chance to sit back, take care of his body and really focus in on the offense".

McGloin and company will square off against the Broncos in Mile High Stadium at 1:25 p.m. PT on January 1, 2017. "I called some of my buddies that have never made the playoffs and I was asking them, what do you normally do around this time?"

A lot of the players on the Denver squad are prideful players, and will not let egos or the fact that the Chiefs beat them twice in anyway sway them not to play with it all.

Also, as in preseason games, expect to see younger, more inexperienced players get more playing time than they typically would.
