The Broncos (5-10) will take on the Las Vegas Raiders (7-8) at Empower Field at Mile High on Sunday, Dec. 3 at 2:25 p.m. MT.
To send the Raiders to a 10th straight season finale loss, the Broncos will have to play much better than they did when they faced them in Las Vegas. That begins with QB Drew Lock, who threw four interceptions in the last matchup. A turnover-less effort would go a long way for Lock, especially since he's only had one game this season without a giveaway. A week ago, Lock played fairly well, but WR Jerry Jeudy struggled with drops; look for him to bounce back in a big way to cap what has still been a productive rookie season. RB Melvin Gordon III could give the passing attack a helping hand with a strong day on the ground, and he could reach 1,000 rushing yards on the season with 107 yards on Sunday.
Defensively, the Broncos' passing defense will face another tough challenge with QB Derek Carr and his talented receiving corps. TE Darren Waller has been the most dangerous of the bunch, as he's racked up 1,079 yards and eight touchdowns, and WR Nelson Agholor has had a career year with 839 yards and eight touchdowns. But no one may power the Raiders' offense like RB Josh Jacobs, who has carried the ball 258 times for 976 yards and 10 touchdowns this year.
In addition to placing DE Shelby Harris on injured reserve earlier this week, the Broncos will be without WR KJ Hamler (concussion). Five other Broncos were listed as questionable: OLB Bradley Chubb (ankle), S Trey Marshall (quadricep), RB LeVante Bellamy (ankle), OLB Anthony Chickillo (ribs) and G Graham Glasgow (shoulder).
The Raiders placed a starting defensive lineman of their own on IR this week, as Clelin Ferrell is battling a shoulder injury. Tackle Trent Brown (knee) is also out, and G Denzelle Good (ankle), Maurice Hurst (calf) and CB Lamarcus Joyner (thigh) are questionable.
