AFC West Week 4 preview and predictions: Oakland Raiders continue road trip
By Brad Weiss
The AFC West will mostly be on the road this weekend, as all but the Denver Broncos will be the away team in Week 4 of the 2019 NFL slate.
Three of the four teams in the AFC West will hit the road in Week 4, with the Denver Broncos the only team in the division staying at home this weekend to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Oakland Raiders continue their wild road trip against the Indianapolis Colts, while the Kansas City Chiefs travel to the Motor City to take on the Detroit Lions, and the Los Angeles Chargers head East to take on the Miami Dolphins.
Here is a look at the AFC West matchups in Week 4 of the 2019 NFL season.
Oakland Raiders at Indianapolis Colts
The 2019 schedule for the Raiders is downright brutal, and in Week 4, they are going to struggle against a Colts team that is on the rise. Jacoby Brissett has come in and played like a legitimate franchise NFL quarterback since Andrew Luck retired, but he could be without his top weapon in T.Y. Hilton this Sunday.
On defense, the Colts are downright loaded, but two crucial players, Darius Leonard and Malik Hooker also may miss the game. Hooker has already been ruled out, and Leonard is dealing with a concussion, but they should have enough left on that side of the ball to stop the Raiders just enough to come away with the home victory.
