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.
The #Broncos are 6-2 thanks to guys like @BossWard43 and @Millerlite40, but its the #Raiders who are in the drivers seat. Right. #SNFonNBC pic.twitter.com/7FT13ASDIB— MileHighReport (@MileHighReport) October 31, 2016
I want the Broncos to win this game so bad. Mostly for my hatred towards Jack Del Rio.
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.
