Davante Adams reacts to scoring stunning walk-off touchdown in win over Broncos

Davante Adams admitted it felt "amazing" to score a walk-off touchdown in the Las Vegas Raiders' overtime win over the Denver Broncos. On Sunday, Raiders quarterback Derek Carr hit a wide-open Adams for a 35-yard touchdown on the third play of the overtime.

The Raiders defeated the Broncos 22-16 on the road as they ended their three-game losing streak. “It felt amazing. I did save Derek a little bit. He almost pulled us into the wrong tunnel. He was a little excited." Adams said.

Carr connected with Adams for the game-winner

The Raiders entered the Broncos game with a 2-7 record. After losing six one-score games previously, the Raiders finally managed to get the job done and win a tight game. Carr, who played college football with Adams at Fresno State, said connecting with Adams for a game-winner was something he dreamed of.

“I've always loved those moments. That's what I dreamed of as a kid," Carr said. With just less than two minutes left in the game, the Broncos had a 16-13 game and a chance to seal the win if they converted a third down.

But instead of sliding to burn more time when it became clear the Raiders would likely get a stop, Broncos quarterback Russell Wilson tried to make a play and he ended up stopping the clock when he didn't hit his receiver.

Those extra seconds helped the Raiders force an overtime, in which they scored a walk-off touchdown. “We called a pass play to basically try to end the game right there. We get a first down, the game's over. They covered it up pretty good, I was trying to get outside the pocket and then (Jalen) Virgil was scrambling down.

I thought I had him, tried to take a shot at him and the ball just kind of went away. But we've got the best defense in the world and unfortunately it didn't work out this time," Wilson said.
