The Las Vegas Raiders go into halftime against the Baltimore Ravens trailing, and here is what needs to happen for them to come back in Week 1.
The Las Vegas Raiders offense got off to a slow start against Baltimore, and in the second quarter, they found themselves down 14-0. It took an excellent drive by Derek Carr to get them within a score heading into the half, which was crucial considering the Ravens get the ball at the half.
To complete the comeback, these three things need to happen in the second half.
Las Vegas Raiders: 3 keys to a second-half comeback in Week 1 vs. Ravens
Derek Carr needs to settle down
It was a really shaky start for Carr in this one, as he missed on seven straight passes, looking to force the ball to star tight end, Darren Waller. He was almost picked off twice early on, and was either late, or too strong on his throws, but seemed to settle down as the half went on.
In the second half, Carr is going to have to settle down against this Ravens defense, which is being opportunistic upfront against an inexperienced Raiders offensive line. If he can stay in the pocket and make some plays downfield, it will go a long way in this offense not seeming so predictable.
