Raiders Secure Halftime Lead with Strong Second Quarter Performance

After a rather slow start to the night at Allegiant Stadium, Davante Adams and the Las Vegas Raiders flew ahead in the second quarter to take the halftime advantage over Adams’ former team.

The Raiders, thanks to a long nearly nine-minute drive and a really bad interception in the second quarter, took a 10-3 lead over the Green Bay Packers in their “Monday Night Football” matchup in Las Vegas. It marked the first time that Adams, who was traded away from the Packers before the 2022 season, took on his former team.

The Packers kicked a field goal to get things started late in the first quarter. It wasn’t until Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo mounted a 14-play, 62-yard drive that lasted more than eight minutes that Las Vegas finally took the lead back in the final minutes of the half. Garoppolo found Jakobi Meyers for a nine-yard score for the first touchdown of the night.

Then, on the very next drive, Packers quarterback Jordan Love threw a horrendous interception right to Robert Spillane. That set up a field goal for the Raiders, which gave them the seven-point lead at halftime.

The Packers have undoubtedly missed Adams’ presence. He’s not a player who can be easily replaced. Instead of spending in free agency, the Packers are trying to develop young receivers to eventually grow into a No. 1 role. Christian Watson, Romeo Doubs, and Jayden Reed have all had moments of electric play, though still need a lot of development to come close to Adams.

Monday’s game also marked the first in 36 years that had two brothers kicking against each other. Packers rookie Anders Carlson squared off against his older brother, Daniel, and their entire family flew into Las Vegas for the matchup.
