No one was expecting the Raiders to be in the news outside of their potential move to Las Vegas. Yet, thanks to quarterback Derek Carr, 25, and receivers Amari Cooper, 22 and Michael Crabtree, 29, the Raiders have now become a potential contender for Super Bowl 51.
“For us, we put ourselves on display each week,” head coach Jack Del Rio, 53, said ahead of this match, per the team’s official website. “This is the natural progression in building a good football team. We should expect to be in these games. We’re going to expect to win these games. Then we’re going to move forward and have more of these kinds of games.”
This game is “hyped” because of the ugly history between the Broncos and the Raiders. “We never liked the Raiders,” Denver safety T.J. Ward, 29, told the Denver Post. “We just don’t like them. It’s always been the same way regardless of what their record is. That’s just the dislike we have for them, and that’s not going to change.”
Perhaps there’s some resentment because Oakland’s coach was the Broncos defensive coordinator from 2012-14 before joining the Raiders? Jack Del Rio hasn’t been able to replicate the Broncos success at home for Oakland, as the Raiders are 1-2. Perhaps with this bad blood between them and the Broncos, Oakland’s favorite sons will have some extra motivation to win this edition of Sunday Night Football?
Who do you think is going to win this game, HollywoodLifers? Can you still believe that the Raiders are 6-2?
