Las Vegas Raiders
It was a good run by the Las Vegas Raiders for this season and they will always go down as the team that kept the Kansas City Chiefs from getting an unblemished record. This team will be coming into NFL Week 17 on a three-game losing streak and a record of 7-8. That last losing streak hurt their chances of entering the playoffs as they slowly got knocked out of contention. Las Vegas is projected to pick 16th in the upcoming NFL draft and could be rewarded with a higher position with a loss. They may look at drafting DL Jaelan Phillips of Miami or maybe Rashad Weaver of Pittsburgh.
Players to watch: D. Carr QB (GP 14 CMP 324 ATT 479 CMP% 67.6 YDS 3732 AVG 7.8 YDS/G 258.1 LNG 85 TD 25 INT 7 SACK 23 SYL 138 RTG 102.2), J. Jacobs RB (GP 13 ATT 258 YDS 976 AVG 3.8 LNG 24 BIG 2 TD 10 YDS/G 69.7 FUM 2 LST 2 FD 55), D. Waller TE (GP 14 REC 98 TGTS 135 YDS 1079 AVG 11 TD 8 LNG 38 BIG 14 YDS/G 71.9 FUM 1 LST 1 YAC 534 FD 64).
The Denver Broncos are just having a rough year and they are much glad to have it over soon. This team is now placed 12th in the American Football Conference and is projected to pick 10th in the upcoming NFL draft. This team is seen drafting a linebacker and Micah Parsons of Penn State is the logical choice for them. Losing this game may push them to go to a higher position but so far, they already look good. Drew Lock needs some help and fortifying their linebackers will be a good thing for them. This team is coming from back-to-back losses and lost four of their last five.
