It was an ugly win, but a win nonetheless, and more importantly, it stops the bleeding for the Las Vegas Raiders. After last week’s debacle that saw frustration at an all-time high for everyone, Davante Adams helped lead the way in a much-needed win against the Denver Broncos.
According to StatMuse, Adams is the league leader in receiving touchdowns after Sunday’s victory, with ten on the year. Behind him, you have Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, who has eight as of this publication with his team on the field for Sunday Night Football. Buffalo Bills star wideout Stefon Diggs has eight of his own as well.
Raiders WR Davante Adams is dominating the competition right now
Alongside running back Josh Jacobs, Adams has been the team’s offensive MVP. He’s been better than advertised; in fact, he’s been delivering on a historical level for the Raiders. ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez pointed out during the game that Adams has totaled 100 receiving yards and a touchdown in each of the last three games. That’s tied for the longest streak in team history. The other Raiders wide receiver is, of course, the legendary Cliff Branch, who had the same stretch back in 1974.
Following the game, Adams talked about getting back to having fun. While he recognized that this wasn’t a perfect game, he emphasized that it was nice to get the win following what he called the “best week of practice” the team has had.
It’s quite impressive what Davante Adams has done thus far in spite of the losses. If anything, it shows just how dominant and godly his play has been. In the last seven games, Adams has posted 100-plus yards six times and 120-plus yards a remarkable four times. If this victory is to continue, Adams must continue this effort. For now, the Raiders can rest easy with their third win under their collective belt.
