The All-Pro wideout finished with three catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns.
Unfortunately, the Raiders fell short to the Chiefs and fell to 1-4 on the season.
While Adams may receive some praise for his effort, an untoward incident with a cameraman is what will be remembered in this game.
He is also facing potential sanctions for that unsolicited gesture.
The league is reviewing the situation. Adams apologized through the media and again on Twitter.

NFL Network insider Tom Pelissero tweeted, “#Raiders WR Davante Adams is facing NFL discipline — and potentially even a suspension — for shoving a man to the ground after Monday night’s loss to the #Chiefs, per sources. The league is reviewing the situation. Adams apologized through the media and again on Twitter.”
Adams Venting Out His Frustration
The star wide receiver shoved a camera operator as he walked into the tunnel after their 30-29 defeat to Kansas City.
The camera personnel fell backward after Adams pushed him.
The former Fresno State standout looked at him for a moment before proceeding to the locker room.
Adams did apologize for his actions, and it could be a spur-of-the-moment action.
After all, the Raiders would have had an opportunity to win if not for a failed two-point conversion.
Likewise, one of his catches that could have given them a better shot at a game-winning field goal was deemed incomplete.
But the league won’t let him off the hook, as he will receive an appropriate penalty.
His suspension will be another frustrating development for what has been an unexpected struggle for the Raiders.
On paper, having Adams boosts their already potent offense.
Instead, they are struggling to finish games despite their talented roster.
However, their bye week may help turn things around.
