NFL Power Rankings Week 11 2022, Denver Broncos VS Las Vegas Raiders
Denver Broncos Form
The Denver Broncos are 3-6 for the season and their latest match against the Tennessee Titans ended in a 17-10 defeat, leaving them 4-6 across their past 10 games and 3-2 in the last five at home.
The Denver Broncos’ offense has been abysmal all season. It has put up just 14.6 points per game and they saw no improvement in the last five matches, which produced an average of 13.0 points. That said, the Denver Broncos have one of the most stubborn defensive units in the entire league, having allowed just 16.6 points per game this season.
In 2021, the Denver Broncos went 7-10 to end up fourth in the AFC West and out of playoff contention. They were expected to make a return to NFL postseason this year, but it looks like fans will have to wait a little longer as the hosts are only 3-6 this season so far.
Las Vegas Raiders Form
A 20-25 defeat to the Indianapolis Colts last time out extended the losing streak of the Las Vegas Raiders to three matches. Their record for the last 10 games now stands at 3-7.
The Las Vegas Raiders will bring a middle-of-the-park offense for their latest game on the road, having scored 22.6 points per game this season. On the other side of the ball, the hosts have continued to struggle in defense. In the same number of games, they’ve surrendered 25.2 points and rank in position number 22 in the league for points allowed, having given up 25.1 points this year alone.
Unsurprisingly, the Las Vegas Raiders are unlikely to make the NFL postseason as things stand. Few people expected the away side to go far, and given their 2-7 regular season record, it seems they had good reason.
