Davante Adams is one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. He has been targeted 17 times by Derek Carr this season. However, he has been held to seven receptions for 48 yards in two losses to the Arizona Cardinals and the Tennessee Titans. Still, Davante Adams insists that no one is tripping him up in the early going.
The Raiders had a chance to win the game before the halftime break. They are 0.5 games out of first place in the AFC West. A win over the Chiefs would give them a lot of momentum. After all, they beat the Broncos the previous week.
With his arrival, Adams instantly lifts the Raiders’ offense. He has a good working relationship with Carr. The two last played together in the Las Vegas Bowl against USC. They have kept a good personal relationship. They are also a good fit for each other in terms of experience and competition.
The Raiders started off the game with a three-and-out, but were able to score on their second drive. They are now 7-0. Derek Carr led a four-play drive for 72 yards and threw a 58-yard bomb to Davante Adams. They then converted a fourth down and scored a touchdown.
Both Carr and Adams have proven to be great players in the NFL. Carr was the first pick in the 2011 draft and has played well in every game. His brother, David, redshirted at Fresno State and later became the No. 1 pick in the NFL draft.
A video of the incident has now surfaced on ESPN. The Raiders wideout apologised for the incident and apologized to the victim. He explained that he was frustrated and bumped into the other player who was on his way. However, the victim has not publicly addressed the incident.
Carr was very successful against Adams. He finished with three catches on seven targets for 124 yards. He also added a 58-yard touchdown. Carr is also 10-for-14 with a touchdown when targeting Adams in the first half of games. His touchdown rate falls to two-for-10 in the fourth quarter.
