At NFL preseason Las Vegas Raiders taking in Jacksonville Jaguars

After nearly six months down, the NFL is back. The 2022 Preseason began Thursday with the regular curtain call at the Hall of Fame game. Raiders beat the Jacksonville Jaguars  27-11.

It signaled the start of a season of the highest level of excitement and skill imaginable.

It’s been a perfect start to life in a new home for Las Vegas Raiders coach Josh McDaniels. And who joined in January after a long title-winning tenure with the New England Patriots.

His Raiders beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-11. And they spoiled first-year Jaguars coach Doug Pederson’s debut game with a loss.

It returns to Tom Benson Hall of Fame Stadium, where he once played for Canton McKinley High School. It was a homecoming for McDaniels, a Jacksonville native. Watching from the sidelines was his father, Thom McDaniels, who has coached for nearly two decades.

I’m very grateful for (the opportunity),” McDaniels said. “ “This is the first time I’ve been eligible to participate in this Hall of Fame game in 22 times. With him, I think it’s a special night for my family and the many people who have helped me along the way to get the chance to do this.

“You noway know if you are going to get that occasion again. I’m really impressed. It’s a great opportunity for all of us and I think we’re all going to love it.”

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and star wide receiver Davante Adams sat out the game in which most of both teams’ starters were absent. At that time, the Jaguars released a list of 21 players who will not play, including second-year cornerback Trevor Lawrence. To reach out to peripheral players.

And just like preseason games without star players. It’s not the most pleasant thing.

His Raiders beat the Jacksonville Jaguars

The No. 1 pick in this year’s draft, Travon Walker, called for a roughing penalty on Raiders backup quarterback Jarrett Stidham. Walker showed why he was the first pick as he picked up a sack later in the game.

Freshman Zamir White rushed for 52 yards and added 23 more through the air. In addition, he had the opportunity to shine the light on the players.

It was the Aggressors’ rushing attack that really wore down the Jaguars defense. He finished the game with 159 total yards rushing and three rushing touchdowns. Stidham, One each from Austin Walter and Ameer Abdullah.

Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson was perfect from the field, allowing 2 field goals and 3 extra points.

Jaguars running-back Nathan Cottrell scored his team’s only touchdown of the evening, catching a Kyle Sloter pass in the end zone. After the game, Pederson praised his team’s effort after missing several starts.

“Pederson was really good at letting me have the problem,” he said. “We just need to clean it up. A few mistakes.”

He added: “We made sure everyone played in this game. As we move forward, there will be a little bit more players that we think will be on the 53 (-player roster).”
