3 Denver Broncos the Las Vegas Raiders should worry about in Week 10
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders play host to division rival Denver on Sunday, and here are three members of the Broncos they should be worried about.
The Las Vegas Raiders kick off the second half of their 2020 slate against a division rival, as they play host to the Denver Broncos on Sunday inside Allegiant Stadium. The Broncos fought back against the Atlanta Falcons this past weekend, the second straight game that they stormed back in the second half, but they came up just short.
Despite their 3-5 record, the Broncos pose a problem for the Raiders, as they have some talented players on both sides of the ball. Divisional games have added importance, and for the Raiders, they cannot afford to let the Broncos come into the Death Star and get a win.
With that said, here are three Broncos they should be worried about this weekend.
Justin Simmons, Safety
Denver has an elite safety in Justin Simmons, who is a ballhawk that could cause the Silver and Black fits in the passing game. He already has racked up three interceptions this season, has five passes defended, and is currently fourth on the Broncos in tackles.
Derek Carr is going to want to push the ball downfield with his weapons like Nelson Agholor and Henry Ruggs III, but they need to be aware of where Simmons is at all times. In addition, A.J. Bouye should be back for Denver this weekend, bolstering their secondary, but it is Simmons who leads the group.
