Congratulations to Antonio Pierce.
The interim head coach picked up his first win as the Raiders dismantled the New York Giants, 30-6. The game was never in doubt as the Raiders lead from start to finish.
Rookie Aiden O’Connell threw for 209 yards and Josh Jacobs rushed for 98 yards and two touchdowns. Meanwhile the Raiders defense tailed 8 sacks including Maxx Crosby’s three.
To celebrate Pierce’s special win, the Raiders were smoking cigars in the locker room:
The vibes are great now that Josh McDaniels is gone. The Raiders (4-5) will host the New York Jets next week on Sunday Night Football as they look to build on this victory.
