It’s Broncos vs. Raiders. NFL Week 17 brings Oakland and Denver together as the Raiders hope to secure themselves a bye for the first round of the postseason. If they defeat the Broncos they will secure the bye, but if not and the Chiefs win and Raiders lose, then the Raiders are sent to the dreaded wild card round. Lucky for the Raiders, the Broncos have not been performing well this season so we don’t think it will be too tough of a contest for them to win. We are predicting a 12 point victory for the Raiders.
Broncos vs. Raiders Score Prediction: Broncos 13, Raiders 25
In the latest NFL news, the stakes remain high for the playoff-bound Oakland Raiders heading into Week 17 of the 2016 NFL regular season in a highly anticipated Broncos vs. Raiders matchup.
It’s crucial for the Raiders that they take care of business in their season-finale against Denver. Not only would they get the all-important first-round bye, but the Raiders can get some extra time as well to prepare Matt McGloin for the upcoming playoffs.
McGloin has been thrust to the starting QB position after Derek Carr suffered a broken fibula in Saturday’s win against Indianapolis. The Raiders’ fate now rest in the hands of McGloin, who has thrown just 45 passes the past three seasons. The backup quarterback has started just six games and made 13 total appearances the past four years.
A season that started with so much promise has turned into a nightmare for the Denver Broncos. The defending Super Bowl champions will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2010 after taking an ugly 33-10 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs on Saturday.
For the Broncos to end their season on a high note in the Broncos vs. Raiders game, they will need to step up their play on the offensive end. They’re averaging a measly 7.7 points over their last three games. No wonder the Broncos are winless during this stretch.
Based on the Bronco’s less than impressive season, our NFL score prediction for this game is 25-13 favoring Oakland.
