O’Connell, White lead offense as Raiders impress in win

Source: John Locher/Associated Press

Preseason is preseason, but a 34-7 win against what many believe is the best team in the NFC is an impressive achievement at any point of the calendar. The Raiders gave rookie QB Aidan O’Connell the start as Jimmy Garoppolo suited up but didn’t play, and the Purdue product had a great game to the tune of 15/18 passing for 141 yards and a touchdown.

“I thought he generally handled himself well for the first opportunity,” head coach Josh McDaniels said after the game. “He’s a sponge. He soaks it all in, and he’ll take every opportunity to improve.”

Raiders RB Zamir White, who looks like he will lead the backfield as long as Josh Jacobs continues to be unsigned, also looked good with a big workload, tallying 13 carries for 43 yards and a touchdown. White wasn’t targeted in the passing game, but that doesn’t mean that he won’t be used in that role when it comes time for Jimmy Garoppolo to take over under center in the regular season.

The Raiders defense, which was reportedly impressing all week in joint practices against the 49ers, sacked QB Trey Lance four times in the first half and then shut out QB Sam Darnold in the second half. It was an all around dominant performance for the Silver and Black defense, which didn’t start almost any key players, but a dominant performance is a dominant performance nonetheless.

The Raiders will play their second and third preseason games on the road against the Rams and Cowboys, and then won’t return home until Week 3 of the regular season for their home opener on Sep. 24.

  4. The defending WNBA champion Las Vegas Aces are peaking at the right moment. The Aces stand at an immaculate 29-4 record with seven games remaining in the regular season, and the team reached multiple milestones in their 112-100 win against the Atlanta Dream on Tuesday night. League MVP A’ja Wilson tied Liz Cambage’s 53-point single-game scoring record with a pair of free throws in the game’s final minute. The Aces’ 29th win on the season ties the WNBA regular season record, and with seven games remaining, the league’s top team will surely set a new record in the mid-30s.

    Cambage’s 53 points came in a 2018 game against the Dallas Wings. The Phoenix Mercury previously set the WNBA regular season wins record with 29 in 2014. Wilson’s individual achievement coming in the same game as the team’s 29th win is indicative of the team’s juggernaut status in the league, and with the playoffs approaching, the Aces are in excellent shape to go on a run to repeat as WNBA champions.

    The New York Liberty, currently in line for the No. 2 seed in the playoffs, will have a pivotal matchup against the Aces on Monday, Aug. 28. With the Connecticut Sun on their heels in the playoff race, the Liberty will need to come up big at home against the Aces to maintain their position in the playoff race.
