The Denver Broncos came away from their season opener with a narrow, 27-24 win over former division rival Seattle. This week, they’ll face current – and their oldest – rival in the form of the Oakland Raiders, who collapsed in the second half of their 33-13 loss to the Los Angeles Rams.

Oakland Raiders broadcaster Lincoln Kennedy joined Nate Lundy, Shawn Drotar and T.J. Carpenter on Mile High Sports AM 1340 | FM 104.7 to discuss what happened to the Raiders in that game, and preview the always-entertaining rivalry game on Sunday.

“In the second half [of the Raiders’ loss], give the Rams credit,” Kennedy explained. “Wade Phillips and that defense made some adjustments; they realized what Derek Carr was trying to do… and they made adjustments toward that. More importantly, their front four started to get to Derek Carr and harass him; gave him ‘happy feet’, if you will.”

“He started looking at the rush; looking downfield and panicking. So there were a couple of interceptions where he wasn’t even pressured; he just made a bad decision.”

Of course, the Broncos possess a fearsome pass rush of their own, getting to nimble Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson six times in their Week 1 win.

“There’s a lot that’s similar from when I played for [Raiders head coach] Jon Gruden, many, many moons ago,” Kennedy explained. “He’s running a similar style of offense. The only thing that’s changed is the names and the faces.”
