The Raiders haven't won on opening day since 2002.
In theory, we should beat the Broncos soundly. Heck, we drilled a new asshole for them last time we visited Invesco.
But, I don't know if we should be that confident going into the opener.
Historically, the Raiders don't show up for opening day games. That's fact. You can say, "Well, this is a new coach in a new season". But, we've had a lot of different coaches over the years.
I'm not saying because of our history we'll lose against an inferior Broncos team, I'm just saying I wouldn't be shocked if it happens.
But, that's why they play the games.
