Is this week a MUST win just like Week 1?

Starting Over Again: Facing the Broncos at the Coliseum

By theoaklandraiders

Going against the Broncos in Week 1 was a huge test. Many called it a Must Win for the both teams to set their season going in the right direction.  Sure enough, the losing Broncos have had a terrible season and the Raiders who won that game are currently tied for first in the division.

Now at mid-season we face Denver again, at the Coliseum this time.  But the game will be dramatically different.

After the most tumultuous first half of any team in the NFL, Raiders have rebuilt in under two weeks to field a whole new team in the second half of the year.


It’s hard to imagine any team righting the ship after losing Hall of Fame GM, star running back, quarterback, with a new receiving corp, new backfield defense and a rookie head coach.
However, this is the Raiders we are talking about.
Hue Jackson bet ALL the chips on one last desperate double or nothing.
Raiders win in the playoffs this year or BUST!!!!

Expectations are HUGE for Carson Palmer the new QB. Coach Jackson led our team to a 28-0 loss to the Chiefs after clearly not preparing the team well enough. And our ball catchers COULDN’T hold onto the ball!

Once again, a MUST WIN against the Broncos. This game sets the course for the rest of the season. The challenges to this team have only just begun, defeating Denver in a major rivalry game is Mandatory if we want remain in contention for the playoffs.

If Denver wins, imagine the adulation for Tebow! In his first start he had a chance to begin his career with a massive win over a Huge rival team, but he failed. This year, he gets another chance, and you can bet Broncos are going to fight their asses off in this game.
