The Las Vegas Raiders rolled into Pittsburgh on Sunday and pulled off a resounding 26-17 win over the Steelers. This coming on the heels of their improbable win last Monday night against Baltimore moved the Raiders to 2-0 on the season.
The Raiders defense continued to perform impressively, holding Pittsburgh to 39 yards rushing and harassing quarterback Ben Roethlisberger all game long, picking him off once and sacking him twice.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had an excellent game, going 28-for-37 passing for 382 yards and two touchdowns, including a 67 yard bomb to Henry Ruggs III in the fourth quarter that gave the Raiders a 23-17 lead with less than ten minutes to play. Carr ran the Raiders offense masterfully in the absence of running back Josh Jacobs who was out with foot injuries, hitting nine different receivers. Ruggs had a breakout game, finishing with five catches for 113 yards
Vegas will now welcome Miami to Allegiant Stadium next Sunday at 1pm.
