The Las Vegas Raiders finally recorded their first victory of the 2022 season, here are the studs and duds from a big win over the Denver Broncos.
The Raiders finally played a complete game as they recorded their first win of the 2022 season with a massive victory over the Denver Broncos. The final score was 32-23 but it didn’t even feel that close as the Raiders took a 16-10 lead and never looked back.
The turning point was the Amik Robertson fumble return (more on that and him later) as the Raiders scored their first defensive touchdown in 3 years. They complemented that big play with a dominant rushing performance as they put up 212 yards on the ground and kept a struggling Denver offense off the field.
The defense did its part in a major way as they sacked Russell Wilson 3 times and made several big plays in addition to the Robertson touchdown. A late big play by the aforementioned Wilson made things tight at the end but the Raiders responded with a big boy drive to kill the clock and end the game as a contest with just a few minutes to go.
Here are the studs and duds from a great game and a crucial victory for the Raiders.
