The Las Vegas Raiders fell on Sunday 23-16 to the New York Giants at the Meadowlands.

The Raiders outgained the Giants yardage wise 403 to 245 and the defense held New York to only 110 yards in passing yardage but the Raiders struggled to put the ball into the end zone despite numerous scoring opportunities.  Vegas got into the red zone six times but scored only one touchdown, settling for field goals three times, missing one field goal attempt, and turning the ball over once.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr fumbled with 50 seconds left in the game with the Raiders at the Giants’ 13 yard line and threw two interceptions including a pick six on the Raiders’ first possession of the second half.

After the game, Raiders players said the absence of former wide receiver Henry Ruggs III wasn’t a huge consideration in why the team lost. They admitted his speed was missed but said a lack of execution on the scoring chances they had was more the culprit. But for the first time this season, Vegas didn’t complete a pass play of more than 29 yards.

The Raiders yesterday did sign wide receiver DeSean Jackson who was released last week by the Rams. Jackson, though aging, is still known for his speed.

The Raiders next game is on Sunday evening in prime time against division rival Kansas City at Allegiant Stadium.
