The Oakland Raiders hosted the Los Angeles Rams at the Oakland-Alameda County Coliseum Saturday night for the preseason opener, and the Silver and Black came out victorious. While the starters didn’t get much run — if any at all — it was an important game for the players fighting for a spot on the 53-man roster.
The team held the Rams to 190 yards of total offense, and limited their scoring to just three points, which resulted in a 14-3 victory in front of the home crowd. Backup quarterbacks Mike Glennon and Nathan Peterman made several highlight-reel plays, giving their wide receivers plenty of opportunities to make an athletic grab.
Let’s take a look at all the highlights from Preseason Week 1:
Speedster J.J. Nelson got the day started with an impressive 38-yard reception.
DeAndré Washington put the first points of the day on the board with a seven-yard scamper.
Clelin Ferrell made his first highlight on third down, thwarting the quarterback’s plan to scramble for a first down.
Ryan Grant followed in J.J. Nelson’s footsteps and hauled in a contested pass.
After an impressive preseason last year, Keon Hatcher kept it rolling in 2019 with a 27-yard catch.
Marcell Ateman showed off his footwork on this 19-yard play.
Nathan Peterman demonstrated his athleticism by bolting up field for a 50-yard run.
Alameda native, Keelan Doss, scored his first NFL touchdown in front of his friends and family; take a look.
