Yes, they are all, but this one can shift the game. The Raiders offense against the Denver defense. And to get even more granular, Las Vegas tight end Darren Waller against the Broncos defense. How Vic Fangio and Ed Donatell go about that matchup could ultimately determine Sunday’s outcome.
On Broncos Country Tonight, Ryan Edwards and Benjamin Allbright chatted with Broncos cornerback Bryce Callahan to break down how the defense stacks up against the Raiders. Callahan also had some high praise for rookie Pat Surtain II.
“It’s going to be very tough,” Callahan said. “They’ve got a good range big guys, speed guys and crafty guys. They’ve got Waller, a bigger guy. Ruggs a burner. And they’ve got Renfroe, an option guy. So we’re going to get a little taste of everything this week.”
I joined Ryan to talk about my seething hatred of the Raiders and fan expectations for the Broncos.
