The Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders Got Involved in a pre-Season Twitter Beef

The Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders Got Involved in a pre-Season Twitter Beef

It may be four more months until the NFL is back on our screens, but the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders are already throwing shade at one another on Twitter.

The Broncos won last year’s Super Bowl against the Carolina Panthers, primarily because they had the meanest defence in the league.

However, after the signings of Kelechi Osemele from the Baltimore Ravens, Bruce Irvin from the Seattle Seahawks, and corner Sean Smith from Kansas City, the Raiders feel they may be catching up with their Denver-based rivals.

And much like that one kid who returned to school after the summer holidays – having undergone an impressive growth spurt – the Raiders were more than happy to call out last season’s top dog on Twitter.

It was actually the NFL’s official Twitter account that got the ball rolling, as they published an article stating the Broncos defence currently rules the AFC West:


And the Raiders were quick to respond, correcting the NFL’s Tweet to the past tense:


But the Broncos refused to be outdone and published this picture of their general manager John Elway, who appeared to be laughing at the Tweet during a recent team meeting:


But the Raiders then fired a warning shot to the Denver franchise, by posting this video of their outside linebacker Khalil Mack, who was going through his paces:


If this is the level of intensity between the two teams on social media, we can’t wait to see them go at it on the field on November 7.
