The AFC West Week 2 divisional matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the Denver Broncos did not disappoint. It was a game that was very dramatic, to say the least, which is quite fitting considering the history between these two. The Raiders were lights out in the first half, but couldn’t keep the momentum going into the second half.

They lost 20-19 in a demoralizing fashion.

The Raiders were in control for most of the game, but just couldn’t finish it off. Tip of the hat to the Broncos. They were shutout in the first half and had no answers for quarterback Derek Carr all game. Yet they still were able to win the game in the final moments with a field goal.

Despite it being a loss for the Raiders, there were a lot of positives to take from this game. It definitely was an improvement from their shortcomings on Monday Night Football in Week 1 against the Los Angeles Rams. However, the fact is the Raiders are now 0-2 and have to travel to Miami to play the 2-0 Dolphins.

How they will fair in that game is a complete tossup. That’s because there are three burning questions following this loss to the Denver Broncos.

With that said I present to you those three burning questions.
