its early season success? There was a time this game was circled on the schedule. For the more seasoned fans of the Denver Broncos Authentic Case Keenum Jersey , that’s still the case. No matter the amount of time that passes or the two franchises change, the games against the Oakland Raiders still matter the most. It’s officially Raider Hater Week. And right on cue: Fuck the Raiders!But there is an aspect about the 2018 edition of this classic rivalry that is both marvelous and hilarious. Perhaps it’s the return of Jon Gruden. To a lesser extent, it’s the fact Denver is 2-3 in the last five games against the Raiders. Those are close, but I’ll need a few seconds to get my laughter under control to give you the real reason.Dramatic pause ... This shitty franchise pulled the unthinkable and traded Khalil Mack.Way to go, Raiders. Mile High Salute, Gruden.This by no means guarantees a Broncos win on Sunday at Mile High, but it doesn’t make it any tougher. The two teams enter the Week Two rivalry game on different paths. The Raiders (0-1) on the heels of a 33-13 blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams; Denver (1-0) an electric 27-24 win over the Seattle Seahawks. On the latest MHR Radio Podcast, Adam Malnati and I were joined by Brandon Perna to preview the game and laugh at the sheer stupidity of Gruden and the Raiders for trading Mack. It is imperative for Broncos fans, sports fans and non sports fans to checkout Perna’s YouTube Channel.

If it’s not the most crucial, it’s right at the top. But Case Keenum and the Broncos need to win the turnover margin. The plus from the win over the Seahawks is Denver finished even. But make no mistake, the Broncos cannot turn the ball over three times and beat Oakland. And Keenum knows that. On the flip side, the defense needs to take advantage of pick-friendly Derek Carr. — Ian St. ClairOrange Rush I just finished rewatching Oakland-LA as I write this and Kolton Miller got schooled by Samson Ebukam Youth Jared Veldheer Jersey , a second-year player who had two sacks last season. Gruden moved his Pro-Bowl left tackle to the right side for that, which has weakened the entire unit. The Broncos Orange Rush should feast. — Just_JoRoCover the tight end For the love of God, put Adam Jones on Jared Cook. He’s 6-foot-5 and Jones is the biggest guy the Broncos have. Denver needs someone on him who can take away the ball and cover him. Stop letting TE be the mismatch. And to anyone who says “then who will cover their third receiver if Jones is on Cook?” Forget about the third receiver on Sunday; he won’t be worth worrying about. The Broncos need to focus on covering Cook and the Oakland running backs far more than they need to focus on Seth Roberts. — Pete BaronOffensive lineLast Sunday, we saw offensive line play like we haven’t seen it out of the Broncos in years. They gave up just *one* sack — and that was on Matt Paradis! The Raiders defense looks to be woeful this year, but consistent production and sustained drives on offense all start at the line of scrimmage. If the “big uglies” give Keenum the time and space to pass comfortably and keep opening holes for Royce Freeman and Phillip Lindsay, Denver will be in control of this game from start to finish. — Taylor KotheFix the mistakes After watching the two teams get their first game in, I feel like it’s more about fixing problems, rather than adjusting to beat them. If the things Denver did well continue into this game (protection of the quarterback, four-five yard runs on first down, defensive pressure) the Broncos should be good. Continue the good aspects from the win against Seattle, fix the mistakes (I’m confident Keenum will continue to improve) on both sides of the ball, continue good special teams play, and let the Raiders be the Raiders with their 20 plus penalties. — Casey Barrett In-game adjustments The Broncos were able to overcome adversity during their win against Seattle, but a big aspect of winning is adjusting to what the other team is doing. It seems as if Denver has the talent to be considered the better team, but when the whistle blows can it make the necessary changes to ensure a victory? Ideally, this won’t be necessary, but after seeing what Oakland did against the Rams, I doubt the Raiders will have a similar game plan. With limited tape, and likely adjustments, it could take some smart in-game evaluations to make sure the Broncos come away with their second win. — Adam Malnati The MHR Radio Podcast is now on iTunes Ronald Leary Jersey , Google Play, Spotify, Stitcher and TuneIn.

He grew up a Bronco fan and made sure to ask Terrell Davis for permission to wear his #30 jersey. Permission was granted and Lindsay has proceeded to live up to that number through his first two games.On Sunday, Lindsay became the first undrafted free agent in NFL history to gain over a 100 yards from scrimmage in each of his first two games. The 5’8” 190-pound back piled up 107 yards on 14 carries in the Broncos comeback win over the Raiders. He had 15 carries for 71 yards against the Seahawks in Week, but his 2 receptions for 31 yards and a touchdown put him over the 100 scrimmage yard mark. The Broncos coaching staff has taken note of Lindsay’s hot hand, finding ways to get him the ball more than any other running back on the roster. “He had a big run for us and finally broke a play for us,” Head Coach Vance Joseph said on Sunday. “He is a good football player. Not only as a running back, but as a guy who covers kicks for us and a guy who catches the ball for us. He is a total package as a football player. He’s been impressive. He’s been really impressive.”Most experts believed Lindsay to be a gimmick player, with very limited play options in a given offense. Instead, Lindsay has shown a knack for finding running room anywhere on the field. He has also shown an ability to fight through tackles despite his smaller size. However, Lindsay also understands his role on the team. It’s not so much to be the grinder who grinds out the tough yards. No, he’s there to break the big one and be the spark that ignites the offense.“I am here to be our spark player,” Lindsay said. “I am here to make sure that I get my teammates going, whether it is on a punt, if it is on a kickoff or kickoff return, anything. I am going to do what I have to to get our team moving.”Game on, Phillip Lindsay!
