The Oakland Raiders were without the services of veteran wide receiver Michael Crabtree Sunday afternoon, meaning that the team needed the other wide outs on the roster to step up in his stead.
With No. 15 forced to be a spectator, Seth Roberts earned the start, and Cordarrelle Patterson also saw an uptick in playing time from his usual amount of snaps, but there might not have been a player who took more advantage of his opportunities against the Broncos than Johnny Holton.
Holton played 12 offensive snaps (22%) in Sunday's loss to the Broncos, but he made the most out of those plays, finishing his Week 5 outing with a team-high 64 receiving yards.
Funny enough, all those receiving yards came on one play, a second-quarter heave from Derek Carr that Holton caught – doing his best Willie Mays impersonation in the process – and then ran into the end zone.
With the score, the Raiders were able to pull within three points headed into the locker room, and Holton's big reception also infused some life into the Silver and Black's offense; so that score – Holton's first career touchdown reception – is this week's Elite Performance Moment of the Week, presented by Bridgestone.
