NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Denver Broncos Ron Chenoy-USA TODAY Sports

For many fans, the Denver Broncos are in a tight spot with Drew Lock starting a must-win road game against the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 16. With Lock’s history of turning the ball over, they have right to worry, but there is a chance we see one of those different kind of games from Drew.

Game Preview

How do we get one of those different kinds of games from Drew? Run the football. If Pat Shurmur can design some plays that will see Javonte Williams and Melvin Gordon run roughshod over the Raiders defense, then that will open things up for those jump balls down the field.

In my opinion, I think that type of game plan leads to a win. Obviously, I am hoping Drew takes better care of the football than he has his entire career with 20 interceptions and 13 fumbles in a mere 18 starts, but this rushing attack is the best Denver has had in years and that changes things for Lock in this game.

As for the Raiders defense, they have been gashed all over the place in 2021. They have given up 30+ points in four of their last six games. On the season, they are allowing opposing quarterbacks to complete a sixth worst 68% of their passes. This is a perfect opportunity for Lock and I think he’ll seize it. And with a win, the Broncos will thrust themselves right back into the AFC playoff hunt.

Here’s how to watch.

Broncos-Bengals Betting Odds

According to DraftKings Sportsbook, the Raiders opened a 1.5-point favorite over the Broncos. Since then, the line has shifted steadily towards Denver and now it stands as a 1-point road favorite for the Broncos. It would seem bettors are with me in thinking that this Drew Lock game is going to be one of his good ones. I’ll take it!

Matchup History

The Broncos-Raiders rivalry is one of the NFL’s greatest, but since Peyton Manning retired the Broncos have gotten the short end of that stick despite the Raiders being nearly as bad as Denver over the same stretch. The Broncos are 4-8 post-Peyton and have lost three stream with the Raiders scoring over 30 points in every single of those last three games. That’s a trend that needs to end this week.
