Denver Broncos at Las Vegas Raiders: 3 things to watch in Week 10
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Denver Broncos in Week 10 of the 2020 NFL season, and here are three things to keep an eye on this Sunday.
In a crucial AFC West matchup inside the Death Star, the Las Vegas Raiders will play host to the Denver Broncos as they kick off the second half of their schedule. Sitting at 5-3, Las Vegas has put themselves in a position to reach the playoffs, but they must avoid a late-season let down like 2019.
Here are three things to watch for on Sunday.
Jacobs against the Broncos run defense
The Raiders have one of the premier running backs in the NFL in Josh Jacobs, and he should have more than enough room to operate against the Broncos on Sunday. Denver has had success stopping the run this season, but Jacobs has shown that he can put the team on his back, as was evident against Cleveland.
Against Denver, Jacobs and Devontae Booker will be featured big time in the offense, as they look to open up things for Derek Carr in the passing game. If Jacobs can get going, the team should be able to control time of possession, which will prove to be huge, especially if the Broncos try to make another late-game run, as has been the case recently.
