Las Vegas Raiders 2020 Opponent Review: Indianapolis Colts
By Nick Ellis
In Week 14 of the 2020 NFL season, the Las Vegas Raiders will host the Indianapolis Colts. We look at their offseason and how the Raiders can win.
The then-Oakland Raiders traveled to Indianapolis last season, where the Raiders would shock the Colts in a 31-24 victory. Despite the score being so close, the Raiders dominated the game from start to finish, with breakout performances from return man Trevor Davis and safety Erik Harris.
Both teams had similar seasons last year, finishing 7-9, and being a tough match up for whoever they faced. The two teams will face off late in the season this year, as the Colts will be the team traveling this time around, heading to Las Vegas in Week 14 to try and get revenge on the Silver and Black.
Both teams have spent the offseason revamping their roster, and should both be a better version than they were a year ago. With the AFC Playoffs going to seven teams, the Colts and Raiders should be in the mix for at least a Wild Card spot, and this late in the season, this game is going to have serious playoff implications.
The Raiders made some key additions to the roster this off season, but the biggest changes in this match up will come from the Colts, who added a familiar foe of the Raiders to lead their offense.
