The Oakland Raiders play against the Denver Broncos in an AFC West divisional clash this weekend, a game that will see two future Hall of Famers square off against one another.

Raiders free safety Charles Woodson will go up against Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning in the passing game, and the 18-year veteran will be hoping to keep the Broncos out of the endzone one way or another.

But there is one thing that Woodson has never done in his career and that he is desperate to do on Sunday...intercept a Manning pass.

Woodson, who is 39 today, has 62 career interceptions, but not a single one of those has come from the former Indianapolis Colts quarterback. 

During an appearance on NFL Network earlier this week, the free safety said he relishes the opportunity to finally add Manning to his list.

"It would be great, man. He's eluded me for 18 years," Woodson said: "It would be great. It would be even better if we could come out with the victory. But it would be great to get my hands on one of Peyton's balls."

So far this year, Woodson is playing like he's 29 again, as he has knocked up 22 tackles and two inceptions to date this season. He even goes as far to note that the whole team feels different this year, and they feel like when they walk into a game, they can come out of it with another dash in the win column.

But given how well the Broncos defense is playing, the free safety might have his work cut out for him, as Manning would see more of the field than Carr. That however, only provides more opportunities for him to attempt to catch that interception that has eluded him for all these years.
