Both of these teams are playing for pride today as neither squad qualified for the playoffs this year. For the Broncos, today is an opportunity to finish another tumultuous season on a high note. We already know Vic Fangio will return as head coach next season, and while there are no moral victories in the NFL, a dub today would be a nice sendoff into next season.
The Raiders really fell off after a strong 6-3 start. Their defense is an absolute mess and is in need of a revamp this offseason. Rumors have swirled that former Borncos Defensive Coordinator Wade Phillips could be in the running for the job in Sin City.
Nonetheless, today’s game will put a bow on disappointing seasons for both franchises.
