The Las Vegas Raiders' downward spiral only continued in Week 9. Las Vegas blew a double-digit lead once again this season, falling apart in the second half and losing 27-20 to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Wide receiver Davante Adams openly questioned the team's play-calling following the loss.

Adams told reporters he wasn't sure why the Raiders abandoned the passing game in the final two quarters when it was working for them. Jacksonville was able to stop Las Vegas' rushing attack easily in the second half, which fueled their comeback bid.

Adams' questions are very valid. He tore up the Jags' secondary in the first half, racking up 9 receptions, 146 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Raiders' air attack helped them storm out to an early 20-10 lead after the second quarter.

However, Adams was almost non-existent in the second half. He recorded just one reception for zero yards over the final two quarters, and Las Vegas failed to score a single point down the stretch.

The Raiders are now just 2-6 on the year and in need of a serious shakeup to turn things around. Head coach Josh McDaniels' seat should be on fire after his team blew its third 17-point lead of the season in Week 9.
