Expect his usage to continue to grow going forward as the Raiders make the most out of their talented back. Oakland won the game 24-16. "We're going to get the ball to Waller".
Patrick made the Broncos' 53-man roster last summer and emerged as a rotational receiver during the 2018 season.
Oakland Raiders cornerback Gareon Conley was stretchered off the field on Monday night after taking an inadvertent shot to the head from his own player. Jacobs became the first player since LaDainian Tomlinson in 2001 to gain at least 100 yards from scrimmage and run for two TDs in an National Football League debut.
Both may still pay off in the long run, but not on a cool night in the Bay Area where the Raiders and the "Black Hole " were fired up to show they didn't need Antonio Brown anyway.
Just hours later, Brown agreed to a one-year deal with the New England Patriots as the Raiders moved on to prepare for their opener. "I wish everybody could've gotten a chance to see it".
QB breakdown: Offensive line coach Mike Munchak was likely the most important acquisition this past offseason, given the Broncos' need to improve that group to get the most out of 34-year-old quarterback Joe Flacco. "That's one thing I learned from Marshawn Lynch".
"As ugly as it was for us in the first half we fought really hard", Flacco said. But we knew with the guys we have in our locker room, we already had a good football team. The Raiders scored on a 10-play drive on their first possession of the game and never trailed.
This was a problem the Broncos carried through the summer, as the regulars put together just one touchdown drive in limited duty in the preseason and no touchdown drives in the two preseason games Flacco played. The conduct fine voided the guarantees in his contract, while the Raiders also reportedly would not be obligated to pay him any termination pay.
"Maybe we could have left them in there for another series in the second and third game", Fangio said.
