We kept their O in check and we played a good game. We still won by only 6. We held Mahommes in check better than any team had done to him so far, sure... but still they were 1 score away from taking the lead from us.
Denver's D still has some very good players. Flacco isn't really all that bad if you watch their games. His OL is terrible and he has little talent around him, but he can still make tough throws. This is definitely not a game to overlook, we will serve ourselves best if we can get ahead early and keep the pedal on the metal for a while, but with some of the stars they have on D, I don't want to see this game coming down to a 1 possession game.
Raiders aren't really that bad, IMO.... they play tough/physical (sometimes dirty while Burfict was around anyway), and they are well coached with a very good QB. We didn't play our best against them (especially our start to the game), but I imagine the Raiders will be in the wildcard hunt near the end of the season. They're one of only 7 teams in the AFC with a .500 or greater record right now, and they don't have an overwhelming schedule coming up any time soon. I truly don't think they're as bad as everyone blames them for.
