The Las Vegas Raiders need to take care of business against the Denver Broncos on Sunday, and here are three bold predictions for the matchup.
This week’s divisional matchup against the Denver Broncos is a must win game for the Las Vegas Raiders, and we should expect big things from the team on both sides of the ball. It will be the second of three straight AFC West games for the Raiders, who are looking to kick off the second half of their schedule in style.
The Raiders host the 3-5 Denver Broncos in a game where they will be favored, but cannot overlook their opponent. If the Raiders do what they normally do, they should be able to come away with the win, but it is about time that the Raiders take the next step.
The Raiders will go as far as Derek Carr can take them, but they need the defense to step up and not force the offense to score 30 points every week. There have been flashes that the defense is turning the corner, and are getting Damon Arnette back against Denver, so they should look better than the team that almost lost to a rookie quarterback last week.
Will this be the week they do it? Let’s take a look at three bold predictions for the game Sunday.
