This was the first regular season match with fans at the Allegiant stadium, and the Raiders provided a great performance to the silver and black attended. Derek Carr and the offense were able to catch up aggressively with Lamar Jackson’s Ravens, but defensively, the unit played when the team needed it most.
Las Vegas seemed to have the game because it was in the Red Zone while working overtime, but a false start penalty leading to car interception brought Baltimore to life. But after Karl Nasib came up with a stripsack, Ravens and Jackson turned the ball over. Kerr then supplemented the miscue by finding Zey Jones wide open in the end zone.
Head coach Jon Gruden praised the defensive end for giving Nasib a deadline, playing and stepping up. “It’s big. He was a big hit at the end of the game. I think Gerald McCoy was injured, Yannick [Ngakoue] This guy, who played Lamar Jackson, is the magician there. He creates so many attacks without a script. [Defensive Coordinator] Gas Bradley did a great job, he and his staff.Give credit [defensive line coach] Rod Marineri, and certainly Karl Nashib, he has a great training camp and obviously needs to move forward. “
