Recent Game Summaries

2019 Week 1 vs DEN (23 / 85 / 2 rush, 1 / 1 / 28 / 0 rec)

Jacobs was a true workhorse in his NFL debut. He played 73% of the snaps and handled 89% of the backfield touches. He showed great power between the tackles, twisting through attempted tackles and consistently falling forward to keep the Raiders offense on schedule. Richard leaped over the pile and then twisted to extend the ball over the goal line for a 2-yard touchdown late in the first half. He was able to hit the hole quickly on a third and short and broke through the line for an 11-yard gain. Jacobs made a game-changing play on a 28-yard catch and run. He caught it short over the middle, accelerated between two would-be tacklers, and then plowed through two other defenders and stayed on his feet to pick up another 10 yards. A few plays later, Jacobs squirted through a small hole off of right tackle, was able to keep his feet despite taking a hit, and powered his way into the end zone for a 4-yard touchdown. Jacobs locked up the win with a powerful 13-yard run with just under two minutes left that allowed the Raiders to take a knee and escape with an 8-point win. It also put Jacobs over 100 yards on the day, making him the first rookie back to get 100 total yards and score wise since LaDanian Tomlinson in 2001. All in all, it was a dream debut for Jacobs.

Raiders | Oakland to lean on Josh Jacobs? (Sat Sep 7, 09:36 PM) - Oakland Raiders RB Josh Jacobs could be leaned on heavily against the Denver Broncos in Week 1 to slow down Denver's edge rushers, according to Paul Gutierrez of ESPN.com.

Our View: Denver will be fine with a low-scoring game script here, so Jacobs could be a solid play even though the Oakland offense is going to hampered by the loss of Antonio Brown.
