THE TEAM NEWS

DENVER BRONCOS

  • Denver suffered a tough season under head coach Vance Joseph and his 6-10 record saw him dismissed in favour of Vic Fangio with the Broncos hoping their new man can turn their fortunes around.
  • The Broncos traded QB Case Keenum to Washington whilst moving to bring in Joe Flacco from Baltimore and drafting Drew Lock but it is the former that will start the season under center.
  • Lock will begin the year on IR and is joined by fellow new recruit Theo Riddick after the Broncos picked up the pass-catching RB following his release from the Lions but any doubts over the fitness of brilliant LB Von Miller appear to have subsided as he has not appeared on their injury report.

OAKLAND RAIDERS

  • Jon Gruden suffered a harsh reintroduction into the coaching world as his Oakland Raiders side ended the NFL season with a 4-12 record and although he has been given plenty of tools to work with this year, it could be another long season.
  • The Raiders made a big move in the off-season to trade for Pittsburgh WR Antonio Brown whilst they also had three first-round draft picks but the move for Brown has turned sour before he has even taken to the field with the club releasing him on Saturday prior to their opening game.
  • Brown has been embroiled in drama all off-season after he reported to training camp suffering from frostbite on his feet, had a dispute over which helmet to wear before he had a heated confrontation with GM Mike Mayock in the build-up to this game and his departure significantly dents their offensive capabilities.

THE PREDICTION

Oakland made some serious moves to attempt to right the wrongs of last year's disaster but the move for Antonio Brown has backfired spectacularly. They face the Broncos who will field a new-look outfit under a new head coach with Joe Flacco taking the QB jersey but the Raiders may find it difficult to overcome all of their off-field drama and that can open the door for the Broncos to claim the win.
