Raiders Found A Way To Make Drew Lock Stop Dancing

The Las Vegas Raiders got a touchdown taken off the board and saw three possible touchdown drops against the Denver Broncos in Week 10. Nevertheless, they still bullied and dominated the game by three touchdowns. Also, their defense came alive and harassed quarterback Drew Lock all game.

The Raiders haven’t forgotten the Broncos beat them in 2019’s Week 17

Last year, the Broncos beat the Raiders last year in Week 17, dropping them to 7-9 for the season. In that game, Lock was only 17-of-28 for 177 yards and one touchdown, but it was enough to send the Raiders home with the big “L”.

Lock ended up starting five games in 2019. He brought a new vibe to that Denver team and was having fun doing it. At the time, it seemed like they had found their quarterback of the future, as the Missouri product went 4-1 to wrap the season up. All in all, he completed 100 of 156 passes for 1,020 yards, seven touchdown passes, and three interceptions.

The Raiders didn’t care for Lock’s antics

2020 has not been as kind to Lock as he missed Weeks 3-5, and has a 2-5 record. He has completed 131 out of 238 passes for 1,497 yards, eclipsing his touchdown total from the previous year while tripling his interceptions. Almost half of those interceptions happened yesterday when the Raiders defense came alive.

Raider Nation decided to bring up those past memories of Lock.

Broncos fans are ready for someone else.

This should be an evaluation year for Lock, and Raider Nation will see him again in January. The Raiders could be making a playoff push then, depending on how the next few weeks go. In round two, we may not even see any starters that game if the Raiders have locked a playoff spot.

23-of-47 – 257 yards – 1 touchdown – 4 INTERCEPTIONS

Did this squad finally come into their own with this win? That’s a defense we need to see more often. As a unit, they wrecked this Denver team all day.

Or was that Broncos offense just horrible?
