OAKLAND — The Raiders can now ease up a bit, 5-6, beating the Denver Broncos 21-14 last November 26 at Oakland Coliseum.
But make no mistake the Raiders still have most of the same issues they’ve had all year. The Raiders were in a bad division and they did little to do to win it.
So here’s to the Raiders — right in the middle on the strength of a one-game winning streak against a team with a seven-game losing streak.
COOPER HURT: Amari Cooper caught a pass over the middle in the second quarter, with Broncos safety Darian Stewart bearing down.
Cooper ducked his head and shoulder down to avoid a direct shot. Stewart put his head down, but his shoulder and side rammed into Cooper in the back of his head and neck.
Cooper was out cold for a seemingly extended stretch but came to while on the field. He suffered a concussion and did not return to the game.
NEXT: The Raiders will host the New York Giants on December 3
