With another big news, the Las Vegas Raiders beat the Minnesota Vikings 26-20 in their first 2022 Preseason Game action inside Allegiant Stadium. Sunday’s game was the first time many Raiders new players were inside their new home stadium and there was a crowd around them.
The locker room consensus was overwhelmed by the energy of the building that contained Coach McDaniel. McDaniels called the postgame. I’ve played a lot of pre-season games in 22 years and I can’t remember a feeling like that. I’ll just say that. Welcome our fans to Raider Nation The way you see them now is totally different.
It’s the best pre-season game environment I’ve ever been a part of and it’s easy to say, frankly I can’t wait to play one more time here and then come to the regular season and make it into the regular game I can actually play.
The Raiders’ victory was driven by the success of the offense; The unit compiled a total of 300 yards of offense and eight minutes in the Vikings’ possession time; The team received two outstanding performances from quarterbacks Jarrett Stidham and Nick Mullens who activated the backup quarterback job.
Stidham finished the game with 68 passing yards and a quick touchdown, while Mullens completed nearly 80 percent of his passes with 94 yards and a touchdown. I thought all the quarterbacks did well.

Generally took good care of the ball McDaniel continued “Sometimes the best decisions are those that no one in the stadium can tell right away that throwing the ball or sometimes taking the sack to the quarterback was a good choice.” ” UDFA has developed a solid chemical with each other in the locker including Chase Garbers.
There’s a healthy competition in the room. Mullens said after the win that his instincts were developing into the playbook with the training camp representative taking over. I feel really good. Every day is a new day just trying to learn as much as I can and that’s the biggest thing.
Raiders seventh-round pick Briton Brown was a standout. He finished the game with 14 carries 54 yards and one final field trip, scoring touchdowns in the NFL despite having a pre-season game. But running back, fraudsters can always be proud.
This is something I’ve wanted to do for a while, Brown said. It’s nice to be there with your teammates and celebrate in the end zone. The team will have plenty of movies to watch this week as they play the Miami Dolphins on Saturday.
