The Denver Broncos (3-2) will face a dangerous team in the Las Vegas Raiders (3-2) in Week 6 as none of us knows what type of mentality that Raiders team will have come Sunday. With Jon Gruden resigning as head coach, Denver could face a team in disarray or a team galvanized.
For Denver, they have to figure out their red zone woes. They have moved the ball well between the 20s, but it seems like Pat Shurmur gets too cute down inside the 20 and its leading to far to many negative plays. It would be nice to see them commit more to the run game, especially down there near the end zone.
Defensively, the have to find a way to generate pressure from players not named Von Miller. Giving quarterbacks as much time to throw as they have recently is putting too much stress on the secondary.
Kickoff is set for 2:25 p.m. Mile High time on Sunday, October 17, 2021 at Empower Field at Mile High in Denver, Colorado.
