After a game chock full of field goals, The Raiders and Broncos game went to overtime tied at 16-16. The Raiders won the toss and got the ball first. And in the NFL, if you score a TD, the other team doesn’t get a shot at it.
That’s what the Raiders did. And of course, it was Davante Adams breaking open for the score.

Adams made a wicked move to get the safety turned around and found himself complete wide open where Derek Carr found him for the 35-yard touchdown catch.
It was seventh catch of the game, but five of his previous six catches came in the first half. He had just one catch in the second half for 12 yards.
Carr was a perfect five-for-five throwing to Adams in the first half for 94 yards and a TD. He had been throwing Adams’s way plenty in the second half, but the passes were often off-target.
They picked the right time to get back on the same page.
