Wow, alright welcome to the 2019 season Oakland Raiders I didn’t expect you here so early.
I don’t know if this is just what we get from Jon Gruden in Week 1 or if this was just a combination of being more settled and knowing the team better, but man the Raiders looked solid tonight.
Did they beat anyone of note? No, they beat a Broncos team run by Joe Flacco that looks aimless and limited in what they can do offensively. However, that doesn’t mean that their destruction of the Broncos was any less impressive.
Maxx Crosby and Clelin Ferrell looked like the best EDGE tandem in the game tonight, not Von Miller and Bradley Chubb.
Derek Carr looked outstanding taking what the defense was giving him and making accurate passes, but really the Raiders just completely outclassed the Broncos tonight.
