It’s hard to find a reason to believe in the Broncos outside of the defense, which despite its relative dominance has not been able to make up for the offense’s ineptitude. Josh Jacobs rips off his fourth career 100-yard game against the Broncos to set the tone for the Raiders, who also get a few big plays out of Derek Carr. The defense holds for most of the game, but a key turnover by the Broncos seals their defeat and brings out the home boo birds (again).

The temptation to forecast a tie is strong after Nathaniel Hackett said this week, “Somebody’s got to win this game.” Instead, let’s go with recent history. Denver has lost five straight to the Raiders and is at risk of getting swept in the season series for a third straight year. Vegas’ defense has been bad, but the Broncos haven’t piled up points on anybody this year. What to make of that? Without a consistent run game and deep into their offensive line depth, Denver may well struggle again to contain Maxx Crosby and company.

Come for the rivalry. Stay for the spite! Which coach winds up getting booed louder by the Orange & Blue faithful: Josh McDaniels, for the miseries inflicted a dozen ago? Or Nathaniel Hackett, for the pain of the present?

Broncos HC Nathaniel Hackett turning play-calling duties over to QB coach Klint Kubiak

Broncos first-year head coach Nathaniel Hackett is turning play-calling duties over to one of his offensive assistants in an attempt to help jumpstart the NFL’s worst scoring offense.

Quarterbacks coach Klint Kubiak will call plays Sunday against the Las Vegas Raiders, a source confirmed to The Post on Sunday morning. NFL Network first reported the change.

Kubiak called plays last season in Minnesota. He will handle the primary duties and get input from offensive coordinator Justin Outten and Hackett, a source said, but ultimately will be at the controls for Russell Wilson and the Broncos offense. Read the full story. — Parker Gabriel
