The Las Vegas Raiders are not only coming off a two-game skid but will be making their Week 6 debut with a brand new head coach, Rich Bisaccia.
I am not here to go into the details of why head coach Jon Gruden is no longer on board, but the actuality is that former special team coach Rich Bisaccia will be taking over head coaching duties on an ‘interim’ basis. To start his career with that label, the new Raiders head coach will be taking on a division rival on the road.
The opposing team the Raiders will be facing is another AFC West team who is also on a two-game losing streak in the Denver Broncos. The Broncos got off to a blazing 3-0 start, albeit against bad competition, as their three wins came against the New York Jets, Jacksonville Jaguars, and New York Giants.
There of course is plenty of bad blood between these division rivals, especially in this clash as both teams will be looking to avoid the dreaded .500 mark. Not only are divisional standings up for grabs, but so is the confidence of both of these teams who each started the season 3-0.
Here, we look at three Raiders to keep an eye on in the matchup.
