In a new era of football for the Las Vegas Raiders, Josh McDaniels triumphed in his hometown in a Hall of Fame game. The Raiders easily beat the Jaguars 27–11 as the Las Vegas offense moved the ball up and down the field.
One of the biggest takeaways from the game was that Josh Jacobs played in the first two series. Most of the key starters didn’t play in this competition, but Jacobs hit seven touches in two series with “first team” offense. What is the conclusion here? This is for discussion. But it was amazing to see him there.
The Raiders used several runners in this game, including rookie Zamir White. After missing the first two weeks of practice, White had 14 touchdowns during the Hall of Fame game for a total of 75 yards. He has looked explosive and it is clear he will play a role in offense this season.
The Raiders handled the ball very well all night. The offensive line opened up some huge holes when the entire starting group played (with the exception of Colton Miller). It was a reassuring site for a division that had struggled to block the game on the run last year. They have a total of 159 yards and three touchdowns on 33 carries.
The Raiders’ next preseason game will take place on Sunday, August 14 at 4:25 pm. They will play the Minnesota Vikings in Las Vegas and try to improve the score to 2-0. While Derek Carr and Davante Adams are unlikely to play in this game, expect to see more entries next week.
