Actually, both Moreno and Hillman should be able to carve up those guys rather easily. I think the Raiders game is a good barometer to see what the Denver RB's are capable of.
The Raiders aren't a good rushing team, I agree, but what Martin did to them is an extreme outlier and it's a divisional rivalry game. The Raiders, Chargers, and Chiefs just watched us clinch our division earlier than any of them have in YEARS. They'll be fired up and looking to make a statement against us. I don't expect us to run a train on their defense, they'll show up with a whole lot of fight in them.

What I'd like to see is a solid 4+ YPC and just a glimpse of bigger plays to come, running or passing. A 20 yard run off tackle here, a 25 yard screen pass there, just signs that Moreno will be something more than the steady ~4 yards per carry, ~6.5 yards per catch guy we know he already is.
