OAKLAND RAIDERS VS. DENVER BRONCOS 9-16-18 FREE NFL PICKS, ODDS, AND PREDICTIONS

The Oakland Raiders take on the Denver Broncos at Sports Authority Field at Mile High for Week Two of the NFL season.  The weather should be hot but cloudy, with winds going 8 mph ENE.

The Oakland Raiders (3rd in AFC West) lost their first game to the Los Angeles Rams.  QB Derek Carr threw for 303 yards last week. He had one sack and three interceptions.  Unfortunately, the O-line wasn’t giving him much protection. Running back Marshawn Lynch rushed for only 41 yards, the highest on the team.  Tight end Jared Cook was the offensive leader for the Raiders, with 9 receptions totaling 180 yards. He averaged an impressive 20 yards a catch.  Defensively, there wasn’t a whole lot going on. They allowed 33 points for the Rams. Defensive end Bruce Irvin had the lone sack for Oakland. Marcus Gilchrist and Tahir Whitehead are the only other mentionable defensive players for the Raiders.  Kicker Mike Nugent made both of the field goals attempted. Overall, the Raiders don’t have much to brag about on either side of the fence. The lines need to be strengthened if this team wants to win this game.

The Denver Broncos (1st in AFC West) beat the Seattle Seahawks Week One.  Quarterback Case Keenum completed 25 passes for 329 yards and 3 touchdowns.  He threw three interceptions and was sacked once. Running backs Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay were both lack luster this past game, with only 71 yards each.  Wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders was running the show, with 10 receptions for a total of 135 yards, his longest catch being 43 yards. Kicker Brandon McManus made both of his field goals, which were both over 50 yards.  Safety Justin Simmons caught the single interception of the Seahawks. Von Miller, linebacker, had three sacks on Sunday. Linebacker Todd Davis had some pretty good tackles Week One. If the Broncos could up their run game, they could be a force to be reckoned with.

The Raiders have a lot of offensive and defensive kinks to work out.  The line isn’t giving Carr any protection. Cook is the only promising offensive player they have right now.  Oakland’s defense can’t hold back any teams, and Denver is going to give them a lot of issues. The team of Keenum and Sanders is filthy, and they will be running all over the Raiders defense.  I’m picking the Denver Broncos with the Under.

Pick: Broncos-6

#Broncos sign OL Don Barclay to a futures contact. Always looking for depth and potential this time of year #Denver7

They were fantastic vs. Saints. Donald is fantastic against everyone. But Chris Jones is better than Suh this year. Barely sniffed a sack yesterday. They need inside pressure to get Brady off spot. @Derek_Wolfe95 and Malik did that for #Broncos three years ago. Set up Von, DWare

#Rams @sonofbum knows blueprint to beat Brady. #Broncos' AFC Championship win over #Patriots was one of finest game plans in franchise history. But doesn't have Von, DWare. And Brady has been sacked 0 times in last two games, while getting hit 3 times. Challenge is real. #Denver7

I will not be at Senior Bowl this week. Loved time there last year, but it was related to #Broncos coaching the game. Missouri's Drew Lock has a lot to gain this week. He is a QB #Broncos like in draft. Curious how his next few months go. Intriguing prospect, no doubt. #Denver7

Well, #Broncos' fans there was one good thing that resulted from #Patriots advancing to the Super Bowl. @ChrisHarrisJr is headed to the Pro Bowl. My #Denver7 story: https://t.co/JcblB8EDq3
