Holmes was a bit more productive with five catches for 69 yards and a meaningless touchdown with seven seconds remaining in the game in which he snagged a screen and sprinted 10 yards into the end zone. Jones added six catches for 62 yards.
The pair will try again next Sunday in Seattle.
He was unable to do much with those targets, though. Jones hauled in four receptions for 35 yards. He caught his last pass in the third quarter, and was shut out during the fourth. Jones will hope for more Week 8 against the Browns.
And that was on a career day for rookie quarterback
Carr won't always be so good, and the big plays won't always be so easy to come by. Remember, 47 of Butler's yards came on his touchdown grab in the third quarter. Remove it from the equation, and he was the same peripheral contributor he has been all season.
Jamey Eisenberg doesn't rank Butler especially high in his Playing the Waiver Wire column, and I agree with that assessment. He doesn't have a big enough role in a consistently prolific passing attack.
Jones came down with a 6-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr in the third quarter for his third touchdown of the season. He was targeted seven times and finished with five catches for 56 yards and a score, averaging 11.2 yards per grab in a 31-28 defeat. He has 328 receiving yards through five games.
Jones will look to score touchdowns in back-to-back games for the second time this season in Week 7 at home against Arizona.
Jones caught an acrobatic 30-yard pass on the first play of the game. Five of his six receptions came from rookie Derek Carr, who went down with injuries to the knee and ankle. In the fourth quarter, Jones caught a 29-yard pass from backup Matt McGloin for his second-longest gain of the day. He caught all six of his targets for 83 yards in a 38-14 defeat at Wembley Stadium in London.
The Raiders have a bye next week before hosting the Chargers in Week 6.
