The Las Vegas Raiders will have to shake off a rough week to win in Denver, and here are three keys to victory over the Broncos.
With the stepping down of head coach Jon Gruden, it has been a crazy week for the Las Vegas Raiders. Regardless, the team must gather themselves and focus solely on their next opponent, the Denver Broncos, if they are to rebound from two straight losses.
The Denver Broncos head into this game with the same record as the Raiders at 3-2, but have scored fewer points on offense while allowing fewer points on the defensive side of the ball. They, like the Raiders, will also be trying to bounce back after two straight losses to teams the Raiders beat earlier in the season, the Baltimore Ravens and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Special teams coordinator Rich Bisaccia will be manning the sideline as interim head coach for the first time in his long 19-year career. Though the veteran coach hired by Jon Gruden back in 2018 has been the assistant head coach for every team he’s been employed by.
Though it’s early in the season, this game may be an indication of the direction the team is headed forward, so here are three keys for them to come away with the victory on Sunday.
