Predicting the Las Vegas Raiders 2021 season game-by-game
Week 6 at Denver Broncos
In their second AFC West battle of the 2021 NFL season, the Raiders will go on the road to take on Drew Lock and the Denver Broncos. While it remains to be seen whether or not Lock will be the starter at this point, the truth is, playing at Denver is never an easy task, but at least it is earlier in the season.
Despite having the more talented team, and coming off a three-game win streak, Las Vegas falls on the road to their divisional opponent. Lock and his incredible weapons do enough against Bradley’s defense, and the Raiders offense sputters after looking so good for three weeks in a row.
The loss brings the Raiders record back to .500 for the young season and gives them their first notch in the loss column at the divisional level. Still, the Raiders are trending in the right direction and will look to take care of business the following week in the last game before they get their bye.
Prediction: Broncos 28, Raiders 23
