Raiders News: AFC West Week 8 Recap

Yesterday was about as bad as it gets for the Las Vegas Raiders. Not only were they crushed 24-0 by the Saints, but the Raiders’ slim playoff hopes grew even slimmer.

The loss pushed Las Vegas a half-game further behind the Kansas City Chiefs and Los Angeles Chargerswho were inactive, and a full game behind the Denver Broncos in the AFC West standings. All is not lost, but the Silver and Black’s playoff prospects are certainly bleak.

Denver Broncos 21 Jacksonville Jaguars 17

Key statistics:

  • Russell Wilson: 18/30, 252 yards, 1 TD and 1 INT
  • Latavius ​​Murray: 14 carries, 46 yards, 1 TD
  • Greg Dulcich: 4 catches, 87 yards
  • Jerry Jeudy: 6 catches, 63 yards, 1 TD
  • Josey Jewell: 9 total tackles, 7 solo, 2 TFL
  • Dre’Mont Jones: 7 total tackles, 5 solo, 1 sack, 3 TFL, 1 QB hit

Another early morning game in London that you were probably still sleeping for yesterday. Don’t worry, you haven’t missed much.

The Broncos got the win and their defense continues to look solid, however, Wilson and the offense are still struggling. Denver started the game with 10 yards on its first four possessions combined. The second half wasn’t much better as they went out three times and three times they were just able to finish those drives with touchdowns to put the Jaguars away. In other words, Russ still isn’t cooking.
