Josh Jacobs delivers huge game, puts himself in elite company in Raiders history
Former Alabama running back Josh Jacobs is absolutely going off, as all of his recent performances with the Las Vegas Raiders would suggest. In his latest appearance against Houston, his 49th career game, Jacobs surpassed Marcus Allen (3,688) for the most rushing yards in franchise history in a player’s first 50 career games.
He has also now rushed for 100 or more yards yards in 3 consecutive games. This marks only the sixth time in the history of the team that a Raiders player has recorded three straight contests with 100+ rushing yards.
He is also the first since 1997, when Napoleon Kaufman accomplished the feat. Jacobs could hardly have been more solid in Sunday’s 38-20 win over the Houston Texans, carrying the ball 20 times for 143 yards with 3 touchdowns.
Josh Jacobs scores his THIRD TD of the day! @iAM_JoshJacobs

Jacobs is also one of only three players in the NFL this season to rush for three touchdowns in a single game.
