Raiders show skeptics they can compete without Antonio Brown

Their formula for winning is simple and it reared its head in the second half of Monday night's matchup. We were praying for him. "But we knew, with the guys we had in our locker room, we already had a good football team", Carr told ESPN after the game. But he's not here. "At least we have answers". He had one of his best performances since 2016 and looked like he got his swagger back after all the drama. And now New England gets their turn.

Carr completed 22 of 26 passes for 259 yards and wasn't sacked once after going down 51 times previous year. He had six total catches in four games last season. He thrived under a heavy load in the opener.

Emmanuel Sanders, who finished with 86 yards and a touchdown, also lost a potential big play or two when he slipped multiple times, and Courtland Sutton's 120 yards receiving were lost in the failure to score.

Raiders rookie Josh Jacobs scored the first touchdown of his National Football League career on Monday night with a two-yard scamper into the end zone.

"This man wasn't really the feature back at Alabama".

Gruden said reports on Conley were positive.

"I didn't see much that was good obviously", Fangio said when asked about the offense. They had just three possessions in the first half and were down 14-0 after three Raiders possessions. He looked the part of a first-round pick.

Miller got tested in the opener going up mostly against Denver's Bradley Chubb, who had 12 sacks as a rookie.

The Denver line allowed Flacco to be sacked three times by a defensive unit that managed to collect a mere 13 sacks over the course of the 2018 season.

"I'm never going to bring it up again", said Gruden of Antonio Brown, via NBC Sports Bay Area. "Those three things added to his improvement".

Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley is expected to recover from an apparent neck injury he sustained on a scary and unusual collision with a teammate Monday night.

According to NFL Next Gen Stats data, Carr's 8-yard touchdown pass to Williams in the first quarter was a tight-window throw. "He had some moments where he struggled".
