JUST IN: Las Vegas Raiders Star that has abandoned by Josh McDaniels, set to…

According to sources within the Las Vegas Raiders organization, Aidan O’Connell will be the starting quarterback against the New York Giants.

Following the firings of General Manager Dave Ziegler, Coach Josh McDaniels, and Offensive Coordinator Mick Lombardi, the Las Vegas Raiders have decided to make a change at quarterback.

Las Vegas started Brian Hoyer at quarterback against the Chicago Bears and Jimmy Garoppolo the following week against the Detroit Lions. The Silver and Black will start their third different quarterback in three weeks on Sunday against the New York Giants.

Both Hoyer and Garoppolo struggled in their respective starts the last two weeks. Hoyer threw for 129 yards, no touchdowns, and two interceptions against the Bears. One of his interceptions was returned for a touchdown. Hoyer finished the game with a 37.1 quarterback rating.

Garoppolo threw for 126 yards, no touchdowns, and an interception against the Lions. He finished the game with a 46.9 quarterback rating. Garoppolo has missed multiple games but leads the National Football League in interceptions and currently has more interceptions than touchdowns.

With the Raiders sitting at 3-5, rookie quarterback Aidan O’Connell will now be the starter on Sunday against the New York Giants. Sunday will be O’Connell’s second professional start. O’Connell threw for 238 yards, no touchdowns, and one interception in his first career start against the Los Angeles Chargers.

He hasn’t seen much action since his first start, early in the season, but he did finish the Bears game with 75 passing yards, one touchdown, and one interception. O’Connell finished the game with an 83.8 passer rating.

The Raiders hope the switch at quarterback can give their offense a spark, as they have struggled across the board this season. Las Vegas currently ranks last in the NFL in rushing yards per game, 31st in total yards per game, and 30th in points per game. They also rank last in turnover differential.
