With Ruggs gone, Renfrow stepped in as the major large receiver and bought a landing for the silver and black. Quarterback Derek Carr threw for 296 yards, one landing, and two interceptions. The offense did complete with an remarkable 403 yards, but it was the 3 turnovers that damage them.

Las Vegas has been averaging 24.5 points per activity and 8.2 yards for each move try. It is hard to believe that that Derek Carr is owning a significantly greater year than Patrick Mahomes. And on prime of that, the Raiders’ defense could be a difficulty for Mahomes and his offense. They experienced 3 sacks on the Giants and we know that the Chief’s offensive line is not the greatest right now. It could be an additional sport of Mahomes jogging for his everyday living.
