Ep.126 of The Autumn Windbags in a VICTORY week! Question of the day, how do we grade Las Vegas raiders head coach Josh McDaniels after going 1-3 in his first four games as LV Raiders head coach? Soto gives McDaniels a C-. RJ gives McDaniels a D+. The Raiders are one of the lowest penalized teams in the NFL. Davante Adams is finding his stroke while NFL Pro Bowler Darren Waller has not. Despite a losing streak, the Raiders are not falling apart. The Las Vegas Raiders get their first win of the season and do so at home against the Denver Broncos. The Good: Josh Jacobs ate the Broncos alive running all over a really good defense. The Broncos defense committed to stopping Davante Adams and still couldn't as Adams got over 100 yards receiving. A few defensemen stepped up big with Maxx Crosby crushing it as always, Denzel Perryman had a great game until he got hurt halfway through the game, Divine Deablo needs more playing time and Amik Robertson had one of the best defensive touchdowns you'll see all season. A Raiders rumor is Robertson might be returning punts in the future. Plus, Derek Carr had a career high in rushing. The Bad: Superstar kicker Daniel Carlson missed an extra point. Derek Carr's passing game was underwhelming as well. The Ugly: With Hunter Renfrow out with a concussion, Keelan Cole and Tyron Johnson started returning punts and they should NOT. The red zone offense continues to be an issue for Derek Carr, Josh McDaniels and this Raiders offense. Josh McDaniels now has four games as head coach of the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders have managed to go from the most penalized team historically in the NFL, they are now 7th in lowest penalties. Turnovers are another story with the Raiders sitting at a -2 turnover margin. Derek Carr started off poorly with penalties but has been great since. Defensive coordinator Patrick Graham's unit has only got three takeaways so far this season. The offensive line has been the biggest weakness of this Raiders squad all season. There was a lot to be encouraged about in the last group from the Denver Broncos game. Chiefs vs Raiders Preview. The Chiefs Raiders rivalry unfolds into the next chapter on Monday Night Football coming up. Patrick Mahomes, Andy Reid and the Kansas City Chiefs have been an issue for the Raiders for a long time now. Maxx Crosby vs Patrick Mahomes is a match-up to watch. Can Nate Hobbs cover Travis Kelce? Kansas City Chiefs have have a terrible red zone defense so can Derek Carr, Davante Adams, Darren Waller, Josh Jacobs and company punch it in and get touchdowns instead of field goals? On What Up, Windbags, why Soto and RJ are an old married couple, why does Jermaine Elumanor keep starting and is the Broncos win a momentum builder?
