For the Las Vegas Raiders to go into Denver and beat the Broncos, they will have to focus on these three things on their way to a victory.
The Las Vegas Raiders have had a tumultuous week. From the emails that led to head coach Jon Gruden resigning, to GM Mike Mayock addressing the media, Interim Head Coach Rich Bisaccia taking over, and players trying to stay focused on the task at hand. For the Raiders to have been distracted this week would be an understatement.
However, as we shift towards the middle of the 2021 NFL season, the Raiders need a critical win. The team is 3-2 coming off of two very disappointing performances and needs a win to keep pace in the playoff race.
While the thought that the team may not respond well to the rest of the season, these players are professionals, and they have goals and want to win too. As Coach Bisaccia and Mike Mayock have said, it’s time to shift the focus to the Denver Broncos and get this team back to the playoffs.
Therefore, here are the keys to the Raiders overcoming distractions and beating Denver.
