Davante Adams set a Las Vegas Raiders franchise record on Sunday, but the team fell short against the San Francisco 49ers 37-34 in overtime.
Adams put together an incredible game for Las Vegas even as they put Jarrett Stidham under center for the Week 17 game to replace Derek Carr. The star wide receiver had seven receptions for 153 yards and two touchdowns. He also somehow corralled a ball catch late in the fourth quarter to set up Josh Jacobs’ touchdown run that helped tie the game with 1:11 remaining.

With another big game in hand, Adams broke the Raiders franchise record for most receiving yards in a season, a mark previously held by Hall of Famer Tim Brown. Adams got past Brown with a 45-yard touchdown run from Stidham. Brown had 1,408 yards in 1997. Adams now has 1,443 yards with one game left in the season.
Adams joined the Raiders in the offseason following a trade from the Green Bay Packers. He mentioned having a brown jersey as a child at his introductory press conference in March, according to the team’s website.

«Growing up, honestly, anything Raiders was what I did,» Adams said. «I had a Tim Brown jersey, C-Wood, those were worn until the numbers dropped. Rich Gannon, I mean, everything. I’m looking forward to getting in there and trying to make my mark the best I can.» «
The Raiders seemed to have the number on the 49ers defense, but they couldn’t stop that key.
49ers rookie Brock Purdy was 22-for-35 with 284 passing yards, two touchdown passes and one interception. Christian McCaffrey had 121 rushing yards and a touchdown while adding six receptions for 72 yards on nine targets. Brandon Aiyuk had nine catches for 101 yards and a touchdown.
