Who needs Antonio Brown?
Clearly not the Raiders, based on their first possession of the 2019 NFL season.
After marching down the field, quarterback Derek Carr hit Tyrell Williams in the end zone for a an 8-yard touchdown pass to give the Raiders a 7-0 lead over the Denver Broncos.

Raiders score on their first drive of the season 🔥
The touchdown capped a 10-play, 72-yard drive that took 6:08 off the clock at the Coliseum.
With Brown released and now a New England Patriot, it was imperative for Williams and the other Raiders wide receivers to step up. The veteran did just that in his Raiders debut.
Williams' father was born in Oakland, and Tyrell spent quite a bit of time in The Town growing up. So, catching a touchdown pass in his first game has to feel special.
