The Las Vegas Raiders returned to Allegiant Stadium and welcomed the Philadelphia Eagles by crushing them 33-22.
Clipping The Eagles’ Wings
The final score did not show the domination that the Raiders portrayed over the Eagles. The Silver and Black started by staking the Eagles seven points on the opening drive. The Raiders then proceeded to score 30 unanswered points.
Quarterback Derek Carr had a career-high completion percentage rating of 91.2%, the second-highest in NFL history among passers with 30 plus attempts. The Raiders pulled off this feat with tight end Darren Waller sidelined and running back Josh Jacobs out for a large portion of the game.
