Revisiting the Denver Broncos – Sports Illustrated Las Vegas Raiders News, Analysis and More
The Las Vegas Raiders kept their season alive by winning via a field goal against the Cleveland Browns.
Things won’t get any easier in the next three games, including two other AFC West teams, starting with the Denver Broncos.
The Raiders can at least say they know they can beat Denver before Sunday as they treated them on the road from October 34-24.
The Broncos have essentially stalled since then, never being able to have more than a 0.500-plus game until this week.
If they want to get back to that mark after falling to 7-7, they’ll have to do so without starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater.
He suffered a concussion last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, severe enough that he had to be rushed off the field and taken to hospital.
Former starter Drew Lock will be in his place, which should suit the Raiders better.
They will still face the top 10 offensives on the Denver floor, as running back Javonte Williams has come out on top in recent weeks.
The only thing that has been consistent is the Denver defense, which is No. 2 in the NFL in points allowed.
For a Raiders offense that has always struggled to complete practice, this is a very concerning clash.
Denver has limited offenses like the Dallas Cowboys, Cincinnati Bengals, Los Angeles Chargers, and Kansas City Chiefs.
The Raiders’ offense hasn’t been far from that level for some time, but they’ll have to rediscover it to stand a chance on Sunday.
