Las Vegas Raiders: Keys to victory against the Denver in 2020 Week 17
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders will look to get to 8-8 on the season in Week 17, and here are three keys to victory against the Denver Broncos.
The Las Vegas Raiders saw their playoff hopes dashed last Saturday night, as a series of errors led to them being defeated at home by the Miami Dolphins. With the loss, the Raiders fell to 7-8, and are in danger of posting another losing record in Year 3 of Jon Gruden’s return.
They play the Denver Broncos on Sunday on the road, and with a chance to finish at .500, here are three keys to victory on Sunday for the Silver and Black:
Make Drew Lock uncomfortable
If there is one thing we have seen all season from Denver quarterback Drew Lock, it has been that you can make him very uncomfortable in the pocket. Once you get some pressure on the young signal-caller, he has a tendency to make mistakes, something the Raiders are going to need him to do on Sunday.
The last time these two teams played, the Silver and Black made Lock’s afternoon miserable, forcing him into multiple turnovers. If the defense can actually get some push, the secondary is healthy enough to make plays, and they should be able to force him to turn it over at least twice in Week 17.
