Las Vegas Raiders: 2021 season game-by-game predictions
Week 16 – vs. Denver Broncos: Win
We already talked about the Broncos being the team the Raiders will need to sweep within the division, so a win here is no surprise. The lack of playmaking a quarterback will again be the Denver offense’s downfall, and the Raiders will make the necessary plays.
At this point, it will be interesting to see who the quarterback is for the Broncos, as Teddy Bridgewater beat out Drew Lock this summer, but the team could end up going back to the younger player later on. Lock was supposed to be the franchise quarterback for Denver, but he has struggled with consistent play early in his career.
The Raiders take care of business at home against the Broncos and get themselves back over .500 once again. It was a crucial win against a divisional foe, but there are still two big tests remaining for the 2021 Raiders.
