Broncos vs. Raiders Top Storylines
Broncos Survive on Sunday Night Football
Though it wasn’t pretty by any stretch of the imagination, the Denver Broncos’ second appearance on primetime football this season fared better than the first, as they narrowly escaped the San Francisco 49ers with a score of 11-10.
Into the fourth quarter, the only points the Broncos had managed to put on the board were a field goal and safety, and with the score a lopsided 10-5, things were not looking great. However, this is when Broncos Country was treated to some of the magic that is Russell Wilson that they have been waiting almost a month to see, and the Broncos finally were able to punch it into the endzone.
Though the Broncos are 2-1, this was through arguably the easiest stretch of their schedule. There is lots of work to be done, and this weekend’s matchup will be a good measuring stick of where the team is really at.
Raiders Start Season 0-3 Under Josh McDaniels
This Sunday, the Broncos will face a familiar foe as they meet up with Raiders head coach Josh McDaniels for the first time as a head coach since his disastrous stint with the Broncos in 2009. Though the current staff and players were not around in 2009, the fans sure have not forgotten or forgiven. Though this won’t be as prominent as when he makes his return to Denver later in the season, expect the Broncos faithful who made the trek to Las Vegas to let McDaniels know they still disapprove.
Meanwhile, McDaniels’ Raiders started off the season at 0-3 and are surely desperate to pick up their first win of the season. However, the 0-3 record may not be all it seems to be. While it may make the team look inept, that is potentially not the case. Though each of their opponents they have played are sitting at 1-2, they have not lost a game by more than five points. While the Raiders are winless and in a bad position, with how the division has rolled out thus far, a win puts them right back into the mix of things.
