The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Denver Broncos inside Allegiant Stadium in a crucial AFC West battle to kick off the second half of 2020.
Looking at their schedule heading into the 2020 NFL season, any fan of the Las Vegas Raiders would have been happy with a 5-3 record through the first eight games. This team has had to go on the road three times to the East coast, including a trip to Kansas City, and has also played host to the likes of the New Orleans Saints, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and Buffalo Bills.
All three of those teams are likely ticketed to the playoffs this season, and while they did lose to the Bucs and Bills, they were able to take care of Drew Brees and the Saints inside Allegiant Stadium in primetime. In Week 10, they return home to the Death Star, this time taking on a familiar foe in the Denver Broncos.
Denver is coming off a loss to the Atlanta Falcons, but they are a scrappy team, led by second-year quarterback Drew Lock. They have had their issues on both sides of the ball this season, but they have shown a tendency to play to the final whistle, so they are not a team to be taken lightly as the Raiders kick of the second half of their schedule.
Let us take a look at the preview and prediction for this crucial AFC West matchup.
