Denver Broncos: 3 things we want to see in season finale
Some statistical milestones
Stats don’t matter in the win-loss column, but it’s always nice to see players reach a certain number and sometimes, those numbers can help kick in an incentive bonus in their contract.
Drew Lock: Lock needs to throw at least two more touchdown passes than he does interceptions in this game? Why? Because it’s never a good look for a quarterback to finish a season with more interceptions than touchdown passes.
Lock currently has 15 interceptions (way too many) and only 14 touchdown passes.
Melvin Gordon: In five seasons with the Chargers, Gordon crossed the 1,000-yard mark just one time. He could get there in his first year with the Broncos if he rushes for 107 yards in this game.
Gordon ran for just 46 yards in the first meeting with the Raiders this season, but he has ran the ball much better toward the end of the year than he did in the beginning.
Bradley Chubb/Malik Reed: The Broncos do not currently have a player with double-digit sacks on the season, but Chubb and Reed both sit at 7.5 to tie for the team lead.
Chubb made the Pro Bowl but it would be nice for him to get to the 10-sack mark on the season, as it would for Reed. For one of these guys to have a 2.5 sack game against the Raiders could be a lot to ask, but it can be done.
