The podcast is back and we get to talk about a win this week as the Raiders topped the Broncos 21-14 in Oakland. The defense looked good against the anemic Denver offense and the Raiders offense looked great – in spurts.

We’re back with our latest podcast this week after the Raiders take care of business at home with a big 21-14 win against Denver.

Scott and Scott give you their thoughts and observations of both the good and bad. Bright spots included the defensive pressure against the skittish Paxton Lynch, the proper care and feeding of Marshawn Lynch on offense, and the effective offensive rhythm for most of the game. Still, both agree the Raiders need to find more consistency if they are to make a run at the AFC West crown and a shot at the playoffs. This just a few weeks after all but being dead in the water for the post-season.

With a big game looming in two weeks at Arrowhead in Kansas City, the Raiders first host the limping New York Giants. If they are able to pressure Eli Manning like they did Denver this past week, they could get a much needed big win at home before heading to the heartland.

We also update you on some big Las Vegas Stadium news and discuss the Raiders involvement in the local Las Vegas community this week.
