Broncos vs Raiders Live
The last Monday Night Football game of the season takes place on Christmas Eve and features the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders in an AFC West clash.
Both teams will end up missing the playoffs, and the Broncos might be on their final games with their head coach Vance Joseph, who will reportedly be let go at season’s end.
A loss to the Raiders and Denver will finish with back–to–back losing seasons for the first time in nearly four decades.
Coming off a disappointing loss to the Bengals, the Raiders look to get back on the winning track on Monday night against the Broncos in what could be their final game ever at Oakland Coliseum.
Monday represents the Raiders’ final home game of the 2018 campaign, and without a home venue nailed down for next season yet, it’s quite possible the Raiders-Broncos matchup is the last of its kind at that storied venue.
Monday’s game, notably, could be the final game played in Oakland, as it’s unclear where the Raiders plan to play in 2019. There have been several suggestions, but this may be the final time to get a good look at just how crummy that field is to play football on!
Denver (6-8-0) has had a down season, and requires a win in Oakland on Monday in order to have a shot at finishing .500 on the year. The Raiders, who have little to play for other than draft position, would love nothing more than to defeat their longtime division rivals and send their loyal Oakland fans home happy, perhaps for the final time.
