Las Vegas Raiders: 2021 season game-by-game predictions
Week 6 – @ Denver Broncos: Win
If the Raiders make a playoff push, they will need to sweep someone in the division. With the loss in Week 4, the Chargers won’t be that team, and it would be disingenuous to predict them to sweeping the Chiefs. So that, of course, leaves the Broncos, arguably the worst team in the division heading into 2021.
The Raiders swept the Broncos last season and will have to do it again, but these games could come down to the very final possession. The Broncos look to have outstanding defense and plenty of playmakers on offense, but the lack of juice at quarterback will show itself throughout the season.
Look for the Raiders to take advantage of that and edge out a win in Denver, which would have been a taller task later in the season. The weather won’t be an issue this early in the year, and right now, the Raiders are the more complete team.
