Josh Jacobs of the Las Vegas Raiders on Path to Greatness
The legendary Raiders players have set some high milestones records over the history of the franchise, some that seemed never to be broken by newer players, but one player on the current roster is reaching and surpassing those milestones.
Raiders running back Josh Jacobs is not only surpassing, but is exceeding those records and is on the road of becoming the Raiders best running back in franchise history.
Jacobs has recently rushed for more yards than any other Raiders running back in his first 15 NFL games.
His career had started with 294 rushing attempts for 1,331 rushing yards and 10 touchdowns, nearly 300 more yards than Marcus Allen when he began as the Raiders running back.
Allen’s first 15 games began with 1,043 rushing yards, and he currently holds the Raiders franchise all-time rushing record with 8,545 rushing yards.
Even the great Bo Jackson gained only 1,003 in his first 15 career games as a Raider in 1987, ending his short career of only 38 games with 2,782 rushing yards.
Jacobs career has begun with a promising start; his rookie campaign in 2019, Jacobs played a total of 13 games due to an injury but was able to gain 1,150 yards, most by any rookie running back, and finished eighth among all rushers.
In his first two games of the 2020 NFL season, he has carried the ball 52 times for 181 yards, with three rushing scores.
Jacobs currently sits at the 23rd spot of the Raiders career rushing leaders and fifth among all rushing leaders in 2020.
The feature back looks to be on his way to another season with over 1,000 yards rushing and he is in contention of winning the rushing title for 2020.
