Predicting the Las Vegas Raiders 2021 season game-by-game
Week 16 vs. Denver Broncos
So here we go, a three-game stretch to close out the 2021 season that the Raiders need to dominate. They start their journey by playing host to the Denver Broncos in Week 16, and we will see whether or not it is still Drew Lock at quarterback, or if the franchise has given the ball to Teddy Bridgewater.
No matter who the signal-caller is, the Raiders take care of business in this one, as the offense goes nuts against this Broncos defense. Also, the Silver and Black can force some costly turnovers for their divisional rival, cruising to a seven-point victory, and getting back over the .500 mark.
This is the turning point in the Raiders season, as they can either falter down the stretch or beat both Indianapolis and Los Angeles to close out the regular season. A ten-win season should be good enough to lock down a playoff spot, but it will not be an easy close to the season by any means.
Prediction: Raiders 35, Broncos 28
