The Raiders physically beat up the Broncos on Monday night, a problem that could last well into this week for Denver.
Four key Broncos starters need MRIs Tuesday according to Lindsay Jones of the Denver Post. Defensive end Elvis Dumervil (shoulder), cornerback Champ Bailey (hamstring), Brandon Lloyd (groin), and Knowshon Moreno (hamstring) all suffered injuries.
Bailey and Moreno never re-entered the game after their injuries. Dumervil was able to play passing downs, while Lloyd was spotty in the fourth quarter.
On paper, the schedule makers did Denver a favor by sending the Bengals to them this week. Then again, that’s what the Browns thought last week.
