After their embarrassing loss against the Indianapolis Colts a couple of weeks back, the Las Vegas Raiders got a much-needed road win against the struggling Denver Broncos in another close game, 22-16 in overtime. Derek Carr completed 23 of his 37 passes for 307 yards and two touchdowns. Josh Jacobs had 160 yards from scrimmage, including a 43-yard catch that set up the game-tying field goal in the 4th quarter. Davante Adams also had a big game with seven receptions for 141 yards, and two touchdowns, including the overtime winner.

Carr is now 8-2 in his career in overtime games, which is the best winning percentage (.800) by a quarterback with 10-plus overtime games in their career. With the win, the Raiders improve to 3-7 and move into 3rd place in the AFC West.

The Raiders travel to Seattle this Sunday to play the surprising 6-4 Seahawks. With a win on Sunday, the Raiders would have a better shot to make the playoffs even though it seems like it would be a miracle at this point. The last time the then-Oakland Raiders beat the Seahawks was October 31, 2010. The final score was 33-3.

These two teams have had very different expectations coming into the 2022 Season. Many people felt that the Seahawks would be more in a rebuilding mode due to trading away their franchise quarterback, Russell Wilson, to the Broncos. Quarterback Geno Smith has been playing winning football for Seattle this season. And the team has had six different rookies, left tackle Charles Cross, right tackle Abraham Lucas, running back Kenneth Walker III, cornerback Tariq Woolen, outside linebacker Boye Mafe, and nickel cornerback Coby Bryant in starting roles for the majority of the season. Will the Raiders be able to build momentum off their win against the Broncos? We will find out Sunday.
