Oakland Raiders: 7 Keys to a Monday Night Victory at Mile High

With the regular season getting underway, the Oakland Raiders will travel into hostile territory to face the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football.

While the Raiders may look forward to playing in Mile High, they may be wishing they were playing on Sunday instead of the prime time slot.

The Raiders have lost their last seven Monday night games. This Monday's match-up could prove doubly difficult as it is the season opener. 

Oakland is still winless under first year head coach Hue Jackson. They lost all four of their preseason match-ups, a stat that seems to bear more weight when people are judging the Oakland Raiders. 

Truth be told the Raiders are getting healthier and are as close to 100 percent as they have been in quite some time. 

With a daunting schedule this year, it is imperative the Raiders are victorious in their Week 1 match-up. It is hard to label a Week 1 game as a "must win" game but it very well could be.

Let's take a look at some of the key components necessary for the Raiders to start the season with a bang.
