These teams deserve each other based on how they’ve been playing, like when two addicts live together in a trap house. The stress they’ve put their fan bases through up until this point is unbelievable, but they both have the talent and staff to turn things around. The Broncos come into this game after giving us a Sunday Night Football matchup against the 49ers that was a more brutal watch than Russell Wilson’s new Subway ad. The Broncos’ defense is the only reason they have two wins this season. Denver currently sits third in overall defense (251.3 yards per game), sixth in rushing defense (81.3), third in passing defense (170.0), and second in scoring defense. Denver’s pass rush has put more pressure on opposing quarterbacks than first-generation Asian-Americans puts on their children around ACT time. The Broncos have nine sacks in three games, putting them on pace for fifty-one this season. Patrick Surtain II and Ronald Darby have been excellent in the secondary as well. And while the defense has been elite, everyone in Denver is tired of picking at appetizers and is ready for Russ to cook. The future Hall of Famer looked like his vintage self in the fourth quarter of last week’s game, willing the Broncos to victory with both his legs and elusiveness in the pocket. Russ needs to improve on connecting with other receivers besides Courtland Sutton. Sutton’s target share is 35% over the past two games.
The Raiders have been a tale of two halves this year. In all three of their games, Las Vegas has dominated in one half and looked like the 2017 Browns in the other. While Derek Carr hasn’t been the MVP some experts anticipated, he’s been okay. Carr has six touchdowns and four interceptions, but he and Davante Adams haven’t found the right amount of chemistry yet. Carr and Adams are only connecting on half of his targets, and with the way Hunter Renfrow (who blew the game against the Cardinals) and Darren Waller (who only has 151 yards on the year) have struggled, they need to be peanut butter and jelly. Another chemistry issue for Las Vegas has been their offensive line, which has shuffled game by game and, sometimes, drive by drive. Nothing looks cohesive on the Raiders’ offensive attack. Everything is just sort of reminiscent of playing with the family friend who was around your age when you were younger- it’s not the worst thing in the world, but it’s certainly awkward. The Raider’s defense has also been okay, but Chandler Jones has looked awful. While Maxx Crosby has kept the pass rush afloat, it will be a much stronger defensive unit when the fifty-million-dollar man shows up. Vegas likes the Raiders -2, but the Broncos are a stronger team on both sides of the ball. Denver’s defense is poised to take advantage of a Raider’s offensive unit that looks more awkward than a middle school dance. Take the Broncos’ Moneyline and get your free $200 from DraftKings!
