In a disappointing Monday night matchup, Las Vegas Raiders quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a rough outing as the team fell to the Detroit Lions with a final score of 26-14 at Ford Field.

Garoppolo's performance left much to be desired, as he struggled throughout the game, leading to questions about his role in the team's future. Garoppolo, who had a tough night, expressed his frustration, stating, "You have good days and bad days.

Today was a bad day, there's no sugarcoating it. It is what it is. So, I've just got to play better. Myself, I have to play better." His performance included a 10-for-21 passing night, with only 126 yards and an end zone interception. This underwhelming performance contributed to his career-low passer rating of 46.9.

Furthermore, Garoppolo's nine interceptions this season make him the NFL leader in this category, despite missing 2½ games due to injuries. Raiders coach Josh McDaniels emphasized the importance of ball security, noting that it wasn't just about Garoppolo's struggles.

Davante Adams, the All-Pro receiver who was expected to be a key target for Garoppolo, also had a challenging game, managing only one catch for 11 yards. His 14% catch rate was one of the worst in his career, adding to the Raiders' offensive woes.

The Raiders' offensive struggles were evident as they were outgained by the Lions 486-157, and Garoppolo's struggles to connect with his receivers raised concerns about the future of the team. While McDaniels acknowledged the need for adjustments in the offense, he refrained from discussing a potential quarterback change at this time.

As the Raiders face mounting challenges in the season, the team and its fans will be eagerly watching to see if Garoppolo and the offense can bounce back and perform at the level expected of them.
