For the Raiders, playing out the string of another

OAKLAND Todd Davis Jersey , Calif. (AP) —losing season has become an all-too-regular occurrence in recent years. They are on their way to their 12th season with double-digit losses in the past 16 years.For the Denver Broncos, it’s rather new territory.The Broncos (6-8) head into Monday night’s game at Oakland (3-11) needing to win their final two games to avoid their first back-to-back losing campaigns since 1971-72.“We want to win. These next two games are important for us to finish the right way,” coach Vance Joseph said. “That part is very important to me. It’s about winning. That’s what it’s about. It’s not about losing, it’s about winning. That’s very important to our football team and our coaches.”The Broncos have by far the longest streak in the NFL without consecutive losing seasons with New England holding the next longest, having last done it in 1992-93.Denver began the month with playoff aspirations after beating Cincinnati to get to 6-6. But back-to-back losses to San Francisco and Cleveland ended those hopes and had the Broncos looking for other goals.“Me personally, I just want to finish strong,” cornerback Bradley Roby said. “Hopefully get some more turnovers. I only have three so far this year and I just want to make some more. I love to play and I love to make turnovers. That’s my focus, just to have fun.”The Raiders are just hoping to get out of this season without more injuries. A series of injuries to the offensive line has played a big part in Derek Carr getting sacked 47 times — third most in the league. Carr is the first player in four years to get sacked at least three times in seven consecutive games, but remains on pace for his first career 4,000-yard season.“I think he’s hanging in there,” coach Jon Gruden said. “No question, I am sure he is sore. He knows he is carrying us right now on offense. That’s what a franchise quarterback is paid to do.”Here are some other things to watch:GOODBYE OAKLANDThe game could be the final one ever at the Coliseum. The Raiders are set to move to Las Vegas in 2020 but have no lease for next year. Oakland city officials are suing the Raiders over the move and the team has threatened to play somewhere else because of it. Gruden said thinking about the end of the Coliseum almost makes him cry, but he can’t wait to see what the atmosphere will be like Monday night.“I get excited thinking about it,” he said. “Just raging in the Black Hole. Rocking and raging down there after the Steelers game, after a lot of wins over the years. Seeing a lot of the old highlights of the great Raiders teams. I get excited and I get emotional about it. Hopefully, we get it all resolved where we can continue to play here.”ROOKIE SENSATIONBroncos running back Phillip Lindsay has been bottled up the last two weeks but he’s 9 rushing yards shy of 1,000 and just became the first offensive undrafted player selected to the Pro Bowl. Lindsay said he never pondered the possibility, suggesting that was a long-term goal of his a few years into his career. Lindsay started out as a special-teamer and didn’t even become Denver’s featured back until midseason, starting the last seven games.“I’m an undrafted free agent. To be able to have 100 yards in a game was great. To get a touchdown, to be able to play at (Mile High Stadium) Shane Ray Jersey , that’s the stuff right there that I dreamt about,” Lindsay said.ROUGH ROOKIERaiders first-round left tackle Kolton Miller has had a rough rookie year. The 15th overall pick in the draft was hampered by a knee injury he played through earlier in the season and has appeared overmatched against a gantlet of top pass rushers he’s faced in his first NFL season. According to Pro Football Focus, Miller has allowed more sacks (14) and total pressures (59) than any player in the league.It doesn’t figure to get easier this week against Denver’s dynamic duo of Von Miller and Bradley Chubb.“He’s had some really good games. He’s had some games where he’s had his eyes opened,” Gruden said. “He’s not the first rookie left tackle that has gone through this. We’d like to see him finish with some authority.”CORNERED AT CORNERBACKThe Broncos signed free agent Craig Mager after putting star cornerback Chris Harris Jr. on IR with a broken right leg. Denver also expects to get Brendan Langley and Isaac Yiadom back from concussions and will have Bradley Roby back after he required five stitches last week for a laceration on his chin that he could stick his tongue through.And Jamar Taylor is back. His ejection last weekend left the Broncos with only one healthy cornerback in Tremaine Brock, and Cleveland scored its winning TD with safeties Justin Simmons and Dymonte Harris forced into route coverage in the fourth quarter. Austin Fort could be a perfect candidate for the Denver Broncos practice squad.

Austin Fort ProfileHeight: 6’4”Weight: 244 lbsAge: 24Experience: Rookie The Wyoming tight end began his career as a quarterback there, but ended up making the team as a walk-on tight end. He was largely an unknown having very little college highlights to speak of. In fact, Fort wouldn’t likely have been a player to even garner notice as an undrafted free agent if it wasn’t for Wyoming’s Pro Day.The goodFort turned heads at Wyoming’s Pro Day, showing off NFL speed with a 4.56 40-yard time, a 6.80 on the 3-cone, and 4.25 20-yard shuttle. When it comes to undrafted players, you are looking for projects that could develop into solid contributors or even starters on your roster. Fort is going to need a lot of work to make this a career, but with his athletic talent he has a legitimate shot at achieving those goals. The badFort’s career stats in three seasons at Wyoming was a whooping 17 receptions for 221 yards and four touchdowns. That’s not much film to go off of. The good news there is that he was clearly more of a red zone weapon for Wyoming. Quotable The Broncos were very interested in Fort’s athletic intangibles. The impression their staff made at Wyoming’s Pro Day is a big reason why Fort chose the Broncos UDFA offer over the Kansas City Chiefs offer.“When I did the local pro day there, I got to work with (tight ends) coach (Wade) Harman, and we sort of clicked right off the bat,” Fort said in a Casper Star Tribune piece in early May. “I felt comfortable in the building, and they made it clear that they wanted me there. The Chiefs were definitely really interested, but it was more of we can bring you in and see what you can do where the Broncos were kind of saying that we want you here.”Austin Fort HighlightsAustin Fort’s roster status with the BroncosGoing into this roster review, I didn’t really know much about Austin Fort. Having looked through some of his highlights and read up on his potential, I am feeling like he could be a dark horse kind of guy who the Broncos could sneak onto the practice squad to keep coaching him up. The Casper Star Tribune article linked in the quotable section was a really fun read on Fort. They interviewed him and really helped shed light on the rookies mentality heading into his first NFL season. I came away hoping he sticks around.
