The Las Vegas Raiders finally get the win they have been looking for. After three games they could have won, but were losses, they were able to get their first against their division rivals the Denver Broncos.
We finally got to see the big pieces of this offense go crazy. Adams did his thing, even though there were times he struggled against Patrick Surtain II, he still made some big plays and crazy catches.
We got to see Josh Jacobs have a crazy game, and the Raiders dominate on the ground like they should have been doing. We got to see Carr do what he does best, create plays out of nothing.
It’s great to see what we expected to see from Week 1. However, it should have happened earlier. If they didn’t win this game, their playoff chances would have fallen to 1%. In a way, this was a must-win game.
However, there were some players on the Raiders that weren’t panicking.
“Huge relief, I mean, I don’t think anyone was panicking too much, but when you start losing a certain amount of games you make it hard on yourself down the road,” Davante Adams told the media after the game. “It’s good to put that behind us, but we still have to go win some games. The standard is to win games. It’s hard to do, but I think we are headed in the right direction.”
Adams and the rest of the team has a great mentality about everything that is happening with this team. You can tell they are bought into the process. Because, either Adams was lying and he was panicking, or he really believes in this new regime and what the Raiders are building.
The Raiders need to build off of this, in a bad way. While they now got that first win out of the way, there is still work to be done, because they are still in last place in the AFC West, and their next opponent is the Kansas City Chiefs, who just hung 41 points on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Because of the way they started the season, the rest of the way won’t be easy. But, if they aren’t panicking like the Raiders are saying they aren’t, that shouldn’t be a problem.
