The Raiders and Broncos rivalry is renewed for the 2017 season.
Oakland and Denver will do battle for the first time this year at Mile High Stadium. This matchup should be one of the better games of the weekend.
Oakland is looking for a bounce back win. They were trounced on Sunday night football against the Washington, 27-10.
Denver lost last week on the road as well. Loosing to on the road against the Bills, 24-16.
Oakland looked like the team to beat in the AFC West through the first two games, then faced the Redskins on the road. Washington and Kirk Cousins picked apart Oakland in the loss.
Derek Carr started the Oakland offense with an interception, leading to a quick Redskins touchdown. The game was over before the end of the first quarter.
No one on the Oakland offense seemed to be in sync as they had been in prior weeks. The Raiders combined for 128 yards of total offense for the game!
Carr was equally as bad. He was 19 of 31 for 118 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in the blowout loss. Running backs Marshawn Lynch wasn’t dancing much this week. He had 6 carries for 18 yards for the game.
This week Carr and Lynch will have to be at their best against a stout Broncos defense in Denver.
The Oakland defense might have been as bad as the offense, if not worse. Oakland gave up 472 yards of total offense against a not so good Washington team.
Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins carved the Raiders defense for 25 of 30 passing completions, 365 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He had a passer rating of 150 for the game.
The Raiders defense need to look alive this week. If they come out like they did in Washington, expect Oakland to be in for a long day in Denver.
The Broncos looked strong through the first half against the Bills last week, but only scored three points in the second half. The offense was nowhere to be found .
Trevor Siemian did not look good in the loss. He was 24 of 40 passing the ball for 259 yards and two interceptions. He had a QBR of 58.2 for the game. He passed for no touchdowns in the loss.
Siemian led Denver down the field for on touchdown. Jamaal Charles rushed for their only TD of the game.
If Siemian wants to be consider a legitimate starter in this league, he must do better than what he did last week. If not, he could find himself in a backup roll by November.
Defensively, the Broncos played up to their “no fly zone” capabilities. The devense allowed 272 total yards off offense and just 213 yards passing from Buffalo’s Tyrod Taylor.
This week look for the Broncos to shut down Oakland’s rushing attack and make thing difficult for Carr and the Oakland offense.
