Broncos vs. Raiders Week 18 practice participation report: Thursday

The Denver Broncos got several key starters back as full participants in practice on Thursday as they prepare to play the Las Vegas Raiders in the season finale.

The Denver Broncos need a win in Week 18 against the Las Vegas Raiders to secure their first winning season since 2016, but they’ll have to break their longest active losing streak against any of their current division rivals to do it with their last win over the Raiders coming in 2019.

Typically, teams see no measured improvement in record after making an in-season head coaching firing. Josh McDaniels was fired after starting the season 3-5 and since then the Raiders have outperformed slightly to a 4-4 record. If they regress back to the mean fully then that would mean they’d have to lose at home to Denver this weekend. That would be nice.

Here is your full Broncos-Raiders practice report for Thursday.
