“About the first thing he does is he says to the Broncos … You can feel the urgency in this building”. If the Raiders can come out and play inspired football, they can give Denver a punch in the mouth they may have trouble getting up from.
OUR PREDICTION: Both of these teams had to fly cross-country last week and knew they were facing each other this week. Therefore, it wouldn’t be a surprise for the Raiders to start off running the ball a lot to keep the defense honest. “The Bills can’t beat us twice”.
What we’re going to need to feed is our running game. However, look for home-field advantage to be a difference-maker in a narrow game.
The team said its locker room is very diverse, but that being members of the same squad unite them as a team.
You can tell a great player by how impressed you are when you watch their worst games. So what are the keys to Sunday’s contest?
Broncos game is an important one, as it will have a huge impact on how the AFC West turns out this season.
After Lynch, the Raiders have nice speed complements in Jalen Richard and Cordarrelle Patterson, a kickoff returner/receiver who also has six rushes for 67 yards.
The Oakland Raiders’ leading receiver, Michael Crabtree, is not expected to play Sunday against the Broncos, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter. Against the Bills, it was a different matter. But each one has run into the Denver Broncos’ buzz saw this season.
The Raiders have not officially ruled out any players for the Week 4 matchup against their AFC West rival Denver Broncos.
From November, 2011 to October 2015, the Broncos won eight consecutive games over the Raiders, most with Peyton Manning at quarterback, but the streak was originated by one Mr. Timothy Tebow, who led the Broncos to a 38-24 victory on November 6, 2011. They’re sick of being at the bottom of the division and see Carr as the guy who can knock off the Broncos for good and return the Raiders to their glory days.
It’s quite simple: The Broncos have faced Mack six times. They did manage seven tackles in the backfield. Washington got to face Carr coming off the Raiders win against the Jets in which they scored the most points since Derek Carr arrived in Oakland. Ragland suffered a torn ACL early in his first National Football League training camp last year, missed the 2016 season and had been designated as inactive for Kansas City’s first two games this year.
