In the first game of the season, Davante Adams caught 10 passes for 141 yards and a touchdown. In the next three games, he caught 16 passes for 149 yards and two touchdowns. On Monday Night Football, he is off to a good start. On fourth-and-one, Derek Carr threw a touchdown pass to Adams for 58 yards. This gave the Raiders a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. Rashad Fenton couldn’t catch Adams once the pass was caught by the star receiver. Carr threw his 200th touchdown pass, but Adams threw the ball into the stands, so Carr didn’t get to keep it. Carr has four of five passes for 96 yards and a touchdown. On third-and-13, Brandon Bolden made a catch-and-run for 12 yards, which made it possible for the Raiders to go for it.
Carr is the only quarterback in Raiders history to score 200 touchdowns. He also became the 48th quarterback in NFL history to do so. He is also only the 19th quarterback in the history of the NFL to throw 200 touchdown passes in 132 games or fewer.
In 2021, the quarterback broke his career record for most passes completed in a season. He also threw for more than 4,000 yards for the fourth year in a row, putting him on track to become the franchise’s single-season passing yards’ leader with 4,804 yards, beating Rich Gannon’s record of 4,689 yards, which had stood since 2002.
The call by the referees that Chris Jones roughed up Derek Carr was controversial
Football should only be played by players who are safe, and that should be the league’s only rule. The integrity of the game and the product on the field is at risk when rule changes and interpretations affect game situations and even the outcome of the game. The Chiefs’ Chris Jones was penalized for roughing the passer when he fell on top of the Raiders’ Derek Carr right before halftime of their “Monday Night Football” game. Chris Jones reached for the ball and caught it as he fell on top of Carr.
Because of the penalty, the Las Vegas Raiders were able to kick a field goal and go into halftime with a 20-10 lead. In spite of this, the Chiefs won 30-29 at Arrowhead Stadium on GEHA Field.
Carl Cheffers says that the roughing call was correct because Chris Jones landed on Derek Carr with his whole body
After Monday night’s game, referee Carl Cheffers tried to explain why he flagged Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones for roughing up Raiders quarterback Derek Carr.
According to Carl Cheffers, “The quarterback is in the pocket, ready to pass.” “He is fully protected in all the ways we protect the quarterback in a passing situation.”. So, I ruled that when he was tackled, the defender landed on him with his whole body. The quarterback can’t be tackled with the whole team’s weight. Because of this, my decision was that the passer was roughed up.
Cheffers said that the fact that Jones took the ball away from Carr after Carr had already touched it had nothing to do with the decision.He still gets protection while he’s in a passing position, so he’ll be protected until he’s able to defend himself.” Because he’s trying to pass, Cheffers said, The fact that the ball went out and was then picked up by the defence has nothing to do with how well the quarterback is protected.
Cheffers said that there was nothing about the play that could be looked at on replay, and that the New York officiating office had nothing to do with the decision.
Cheffers’ explanation won’t be good enough for the Chiefs or for NFL fans who think that penalties for roughing the passer are way too harsh.
