Oakland Raiders at Denver Broncos: 3 Bold Predictions in Week 17
The Oakland Raiders head to Denver with a chance to make the playoffs on the line, and here are three bold predictions for the game this Sunday.
We are in Week 17 and the Oakland Raiders are in a peculiar position. Heading into Denver to play the Broncos, the Raiders are still in the hunt for a playoff birth as the sixth seed in the AFC.
There is definitely a good amount of things that have to fall in line for that to happen, but they can start by getting a win at Empower Field at Mile High this Sunday. The Raiders have already beaten the Broncos once this season, but that came all the way back in Week 1, where we got our first look at star rookie running back Josh Jacobs.
It has been quite the up and down year, and like many teams, the Raiders haven’t been short of injuries to some big pieces. None the less, they still have plenty to play for this week and have a lot to be thankful for as this season potentially comes to a close.
With a number of story lines heading into the final divisional match-up of the year, here are my 3 bold predictions for the upcoming game against the Broncos in Denver.
