Josh Jacobs Hit Massive Raiders’ Milestone In Week 11

Week 11 was a disappointing one for the Las Vegas Raiders. Their two-game winning streak with Antonio Pierce as interim head coach came to an end, as they lost to the Miami Dolphins 20-13.

It was a game the Raiders had plenty of opportunities to win as their defense stepped up to the plate against an explosive Dolphins offense. Las Vegas gave up 422 total yards of offense in the game but forced three turnovers and held their opponents to convert only 3-of-11 on third down.

Unfortunately for the Raiders, their offense wasn’t able to take advantage of any of the opportunities presented to them. They managed only 296 yards of total offense and suffered three turnovers of their own. Without the defense playing to the level it did, this would have been an old-fashioned blowout.

One of the failures of the offense not getting on track was the inability to get the rushing attack going. The Raiders managed only 36 yards on 16 attempts, with Josh Jacobs gaining only 39 yards on 14 carries.

It was a disappointing performance after Jacobs rumbled to 214 yards and two touchdowns in the previous two games. Despite the lackluster performance against the Dolphins, it was still a memorable one for the 2019 first-round pick.

According to the Raiders PR Team on X, formerly known as Twitter, Week 11 was historic for Jacobs. He now has 5,397 rushing yards in his career. That total surpasses Marcus Allen for the most in the first five seasons of a career in Raiders history.

While Jacobs would have assuredly preferred such an accomplishment to occur in a victory, it is quite an impressive feat nonetheless. Allen is one of the greatest players to ever don the silver and black and any time you are mentioned in the same sentence as him, you are doing something right.
