The Las Vegas Raiders took on the Denver Broncos in Week 16 needing a win to stay alive in the AFC, and here are three things we learned in the victory.
It was not pretty, but what has been pretty about the Las Vegas Raiders since the bye week? In the end, the Silver and Black were able to take care of their own business, beating division rival Denver at home, completing the season sweep of their rival, and moving their record to 8-7 on the season.
The 5-2 start to the season seems like forever ago, and after so much turmoil on and off the field, it was good to see the team put together back-to-back victories. Now, they will head east to take on the Indianapolis Colts in a game that they absolutely must have if they hope to continue this improbable run to the playoffs.
For Las Vegas, this was a solid victory, as they got back to doing what they do best, and that is run the football. We saw a version of Josh Jacobs we had not seen in a while, and despite numerous turnovers, the Raiders were able to prove themselves to be the better team in this one.
