Denver Broncos at Oakland Raiders: 3 things to watch
By Nick Ellis
Tyrell Williams vs Chris Harris
When Antonio Brown was first traded for to kick off the offseason, it was to bring in an elite wide receiver who could go up against the best in the business. However, due to the fact he may not be with the team on Monday night, the attention turns to former Los Angeles Raiders wide receiver Tyrell Williams.
Williams has been the No.1 wideout before, as he filled in for Keenan Allen a few years back with the Chargers, going for over 1,000 yards in that campaign. He has the deep-threat ability that Jon Gruden likes, but he will have a tough matchup in Chris Harris Jr. on Monday.
The rivalry between the Raiders and Broncos is a heated one, especially between the wide receivers and corner backs. Michael Crabtree and Aqib Talib was as strong of a rivalry as you can get, and we could see something similar here.
If Williams can get separation, and Derek Carr has time, the Raiders will look to exploit the Broncos downfield.
