Las Vegas @ Denver
Current Records: Las Vegas 3-2; Denver 3-2
What to Know
The Las Vegas Raiders won both of their matches against the Denver Broncos last season (37-12 and 32-31) and are aiming for the same result Sunday. Las Vegas and Denver will face off in an AFC West battle at 4:25 p.m. ET at Empower Field at Mile High. Given that these two teams suffered a loss in their last game, they both have a little extra motivation heading into this contest.
The Raiders came up short against the Chicago Bears last week, falling 20-9. One thing holding Las Vegas back was the mediocre play of QB Derek Carr, who did not have his best game: besides failing to produce a single touchdown, he threw one interception with only 5.89 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, Denver came up short against the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, falling 27-19. A silver lining for Denver was the play of WR Courtland Sutton, who caught seven passes for one TD and 120 yards.
Las Vegas is expected to lose this next one by 4. Those sticking with them against the spread have guts, to put it politely, as the squad has let down bettors in their past three games.
The losses bumped both teams down to an identical 3-2. The Raiders and the Broncos are both 0-1 after wins this year, but that symmetry won't hold for long.
