It’s time to focus on Week 17 for the Las Vegas Raiders.
The Raiders play at the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday. Kickoff is at 10 a.m. PT. Let’s take a quick look at the Colts:
The Colts are 9-6 after winning 22-16 at the Arizona Cardinals on Saturday night. The have won three games in a row and six of their last seven games.
Indianapolis running back Johnathan Taylor is leading the NFL with 1,626 rushing yards. He is an NFL MVP candidate. The Raiders must find a way to contain him
First time against Wentz:
This will be the Raiders’ first time facing quarterback Carson Wentz. He was hurt when the Raiders played his former team, the Philadelphia Eagles, in 2017.
Colts’ stars, guard Quenton Nelson and linebacker Darius Leonard are on the NFL’s reserve/COVID-19 list. They may miss this game, which would be huge.
The Colts beat the Raiders 44-27 in Las Vegas in Week 14 last year. The Raiders fired defensive coordinator Paul Guenther hours later.
