It's Oakland Raiders week and they are being hyped heavily

New, comments

On The Afternoon Drive, Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro were told by Mike Pritchard that he expects the Oakland Raiders to take control of the AFC West this Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

Eric Goodman and Les Shapiro from The Afternoon Drive talked with Mike Pritchard on Monday about the Denver Broncos and how they got to 6-2. With the Oakland Raiders game this week, the AFC West will go a long way to being decided this weekend.

Pritchard is a huge fan of Derek Carr and the Raiders. He talked up the Raiders, while ignoring their major issues on defense and talking up the Broncos issues to pick Oakland to win this game.

The hype machine is in full swing as the national media sees a relevant Raiders team for the first time in a dozen years. The hype is so thick that you are going to need avoid reading major outlets this week. Unless you like seeing these kinds of headlines.

I want the Broncos to win this game so bad. Mostly for my hatred towards Jack Del Rio.

Bonus Listen

The Denver Broncos could use a quality upgrade before the trade deadline, but the only name I care about is Sheldon Richardson's. Eric and Les talk about trading for an offensive lineman, which isn't a terrible idea either.
