Davante Adams didn't hide his frustration after the Las Vegas Raiders suffered another disappointing loss. On Sunday, the Raiders suffered a 27-20 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road. The Raiders had a 17-0 lead before the Jaguars stormed back to win.
The Raiders, who entered this season with Super Bowl aspirations, now stand at 2-6. "There's no reason why we should be losing games like this, and it's frustrating. If we played for a s---ty team, then it's one thing.
But that's not what it is," Adams said, per ESPN. In the first half, the Raiders went to Adams, who finished the half with nine catches, 146 yards and two touchdowns. In the rest of the game, Adams had one catch.
Adams frustrated after the Raiders' latest loss
"The way we were attacking in the first half was working, to a certain extent.
I feel like we got away from that and started playing the game a little different, and that's not the way we've got to do it. But at the end of the day, if I'm rolling in certain situations like that, or if the pass game is something that's helping us move the ball and win games, then, obviously, that's the idea.
You want to stick with what's working," Adams reflected. In the second half, the Raiders relied more on the running game as Josh Jacobs was constantly getting touches. Adams suggested he understands the running game is a part of playcalling but seemingly questioned why the Raiders didn't simply keep attacking through the passing game.
"So, I understand that part of it, but I also understand the part that if it ain't broke, don't fix it. That's kind of the way I think, so at the end of the day, we don't need to make it any spicier than it needs to be, but I think y'all feel me on that.
We did a decent enough job to still put ourselves in a decent position moving into the second half, and then, we just basically fell apart. I don't even know how else to even characterize it. But it's frustrating. Ain't no way we should be losing games at the rate we are, let alone the way that we are, and over the middle at the end of the game, I've got to make a play on that ball," Adams explained.
