Heading into their 2016 bye week, the Oakland Raiders are feeling pretty good about their performance so far this season. This year's iteration of the Silver and Black was shrouded in high expectations all offseason, and the Raider Nation can rest easy, for at least another two weeks, knowing that their squad has backed up all of the hype to date.
The latest win was the biggest yet on the season, as the Raiders handily defeated the defending champion Denver Broncos in prime time on Sunday Night Football. The crowd was raucous and the defense came out and completely stifled the Denver offense. On the flip side of the ball, running back Latavius Murray had his best performance of the season, eclipsing the century mark on the ground and finding paydirt three times.
Now standing at 7-2 and in first place in the tightly-contested AFC West, the Raiders are receiving more praise than ever, and the belief that the Silver and Black are true contenders continues to spread. Check out some of the best reactions across social media to the latest win:
