In strictly a football sense, the Las Vegas Raiders and Denver Broncos have plenty in common. Both teams began the season 3-0 only to drop two straight, and Sunday’s tilt between the two could effectively remove the loser from the AFC West title race. Of course, other factors come into play, but the game will have significant meaning within the division. The game kicks off at 4:25 p.m. ET with CBS carrying the broadcast.
The Raiders have spent the better part of the last two weeks dealing with a national scandal caused by emails sent roughly a decade earlier by head coach Jon Gruden. Those messages, containing offensive language and involving then-Washington executive vice president Bruce Allen among others, forced Gruden to resign earlier this week. Las Vegas will now enter a new era under interim head coach Rich Bisaccia.
As for the Broncos, their slide following a 3-0 start centers mostly around poor offensive play. The team produced just 26 combined points over the last two weeks. A matchup with the reeling Raiders won’t right the ship, but it could help turn the season around.
