If you see BLUE in your area on the map above, you’ll get the Broncos-Raiders game on your local CBS affiliate. If you live in Alaska or Hawaii, you won’t get the Broncos game this week.
The Denver Broncos will be without starting quarterback Teddy Bridgewater when they face the Las Vegas Raiders, which means Drew Lock will get a chance to prove he can play in this league. Head coach Vic Fangio felt Lock would be able to make his brief appearances this season in relief and a full week of practice rehearsals and have a good game on Sunday.
“I think he’ll be better at it [by] get a whole week of training, take all the reps there – or get most of the reps – get the experience he’s had this year and get to the middle of a game,” Fangio said. “I think it will all work to his advantage to avoid that.”
If Drew Lock comes out on fire, Denver will easily win this game. They have much better talent and better defensive training. But Lock also has a much lower floor, so getting him out there and playing well is key to everything else. A win puts Denver back in the AFC playoff mix.
Kickoff is scheduled for 2:25 p.m. Mile High time on Sunday, December 26, 2021 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nevada. The Broncos are the 1-point favorites according to our friends at DraftKings Sportsbook. You can watch the live stream of the game via FuboTV or on your local CBS station.
