4 reasonable expectations for the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 6
Raiders beat the Denver Broncos
After two straight losses to the Los Angeles Chargers and the Chicago Bears, Raider Nation is starving for a victory. The Denver Broncos went 3-0 going against the still winless Jacksonville Jaguars, the one-win New York Jets, and Giants, so it is not like their victories have come at the hands of the elite in the NFL.
The two teams the Broncos have lost to are two teams that the Raiders have beaten already, one of them being on the road in Pittsburgh. The Broncos have an incredibly talented defense with playmakers at literally every level, but I believe the Raiders are an overall better team than the Broncos with the combination of their offense and defense.
Despite recent challenges, the Las Vegas Raiders job is one of the most attractive in the NFL and will be a hot commodity this offseason.
If the Raiders offense can finally click from beginning to end of this game this one should not be a heart attack game, but if the offensive line continues to get dominated as they have been for most of the season then this game will come down to a final drive to win.
