We are now halfway through the NFL season, but the Las Vegas Raiders season has only just begun.
Days after owner Mark Davis finally gave head coach Josh McDaniels his walking papers and named Antonio Pierce as interim head coach, the Raiders went on to beat the New York Giants 30-6. Rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell is finally getting a chance to play and be properly evaluated. Running back Josh Jacobs eventually got the touchdown he wanted. Wide receivers Trey Tucker, Davante Adams and Jacoby Meyers were part of the master plan. And everyone seemed happier than they had been at any time of the season.
So it’s not the best time for the struggling team to face the reborn Raiders. But the New York Jets can only go as far as the schedule says, and in Week 10 they play in Las Vegas. Fortune continues to frown on the Jets (Zach Wilson is still the team’s starting quarterback), but they can stop the Raiders’ story in its tracks with a win Sunday night.
