Week 11: at Denver Broncos
In Week 11, the Raiders will travel to Denver to take on the Broncos, who should be in full swing with Russell Wilson at quarterback at this point. Denver has more than enough weapons to make a big jump in the standings in Wilson’s first season at the helm, and getting them on the road is going to be a tough one for the Raiders.
Wilson has no issues playing in cold weather, as we saw during his days in Seattle, so he is the perfect player to come in and lead this team. He is not Drew Lock, and while he does make his fair share of mistakes from time to time, the Broncos should be much more consistent on offense with him at the helm.
In this one, the Raiders battle to the end, but the Broncos can get the crucial divisional win at home. This is the beginning of a two-game road stretch for Las Vegas, and while they get off to a tough start, a friendly face is waiting for them in Week 12 to get back on track.
Records: 7-3 overall, 2-2 in AFC West
