Bold Predictions: Denver Broncos v. Oakland Raiders
Broncos Defense: Hold Derek Carr under 250 yards; Harris/Roby/Doss hold Crabtree/Cooper under 60 yards receiving
The Oakland Raiders boast a top-five offense in the NFL this year, but they will run into a secondary ready to prove them wrong. Kayvon Webster is a special teams player; however, the hope was to have him provide depth to a secondary without Aqib Talib. Both Talib and Webster are ruled out for the Sunday night game against the Raiders.
Lorenzo Doss was a ball hawk in Training Camp, but struggled in preseason. Doss did play really well in the game at home against San Diego. He will need to have his play carry over from last week and expect it to continue. Chris Harris and Bradley Roby both should see no problems facing Michael Crabtree and Amari Cooper. Even with no Talib, the Broncos have an embarrassment of riches at the secondary position to shut all the targets down. Not just the Raiders.
Doss was so close to interception twice in the Chargers. Expect him to jump a route and change the momentum of a game with an interception. Ultimately, there is four bold predictions in one slide. This is the type of attitude game for the Broncos to prove they can shut down a high-powered offense like the Raiders.
