Nothing says anxiety like Raider Nation watching a Raiders game and that was evident for this one. A game that went down to the very last play, literally, the Raiders pulled off the Metlife Miracle with a 46 yard touchdown to first round pick Henry Ruggs to seal the victory for the Silver and Black. Derek Carr also finished the game, making a little bit of NFL history by having the most fourth quarter comebacks for a single player in their first seven seasons with 20 comebacks.
The Raider offense did well and did poorly a lot in this game, and there was no in between. Carr had a career game finishing the day with 381 yards passing, three touchdowns, and one interception. Now for the man who had an absolute day, Tight End Darren Waller. Waller finished the day with 13 receptions, 200 yards on the dot, and two touchdowns. What a day for Waller. Henry Ruggs, who did not have the best day, finished off with three receptions, 84 yards, and one touchdown.
The same thing can be said for the defense, but the non existent pass rush was not the case today as first round pick Clelin Ferrell made his return and boy was it noticeable. Ferrell finished the day with six total tackles, four solo tackles, and two strip sacks that both led to turnovers. Trayvon Mullen added to his interception total by picking off Darnold in the second quarter. Jeff Heath finished his day with eight total tackles, seven solo tackles, and the teams best player defensively.
The Jets continue to further their quest for Clemson Quarterback and projected first overall pick, Trevor Lawrence, by dropping down to 0-12 on the year. The Raiders bounce right back into the AFC playoff picture sitting at 7-5.
