The Raiders visit Denver on Sunday with a 1:25 p.m. PT kickoff at Mile High. Let’s take an early look at the Broncos:
Denver is 3-2 after a 27-19 road loss at the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 5. The Broncos have lost two straight games after starting a surprising 3-0.
Bridgewater seems healthy:
After getting hurt in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens, Bridgewater was able to play at Pittsburgh and did pretty well. The first-year Denver starter threw for 288 yards. He’s having a solid season for the Broncos.
The bright spot for Denver is its defense. Star pass-rusher Von Miler has 4.5 sacks and the secondary — featuring star safety Justin Simmons and rookie cornerback Patrick Surtain — is excellent. It will be a challenge for Derek Carr and the rest of the Las Vegas offense.
