Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams made a memorable debut for that Darkside in Week 1. The 29-year-old bagged a rich haul with ten catches for 141 yards and a touchdown. However, Week 2 was different. Adams still had a TD catch but wasn’t able to do much for the rest of the day. He led the receivers with 65 snaps, but his receiving numbers were the lowest on his team.

Both his catches came in the first half. His off-show in the second outing is related to his lack of support from the team, as per the experts. NFL analyst Chancellor Johnson tweeted he had never seen Adams make that type of face when Aaron Rodgers was throwing him the ball.
