Josh Jacobs went into God Mode in victory over Seattle
It’s been an emotional rollercoaster of a season for the Las Vegas Raiders so far this season. The Raiders have lost six games by one score this year and have blown three 17-point leads. Over the last two games it seems like the Raiders have finally hit their stride winning in walk off fashion. Last week the hero was Davante Adams. This week in Seattle it was Josh Jacobs. Jacobs and the Raiders beat the Seahawks 40-34 in overtime. Josh Jacobs had a monster game with 300 yards from scrimmage. For the fantasy football heads out there that was good for 48 points! Jacobs sealed the Raiders second straight win with an 86-yard touchdown run.
The game was a back-and-forth affair. It started bad for the Raiders after a Derek Carr interception to start the game. Seattle scored right away after rookie Kenneth Walker scored a seven-yard TD. Walker had a pretty quiet day only rushing for 26 yards, but he did have two touchdowns on the ground. Geno Smith had another 300-yard game throwing for two touchdowns. However, on this day the Raiders were just too resilient and really wanted it more than Seattle. On the Raiders second drive it seemed as if their quarterback Derek Carr broke his ribs after a hard hit. Carr was down and winced in pain even punching the turf. However, he came back two plays later and threw a touchdown. Raiders remained resillisent throughout this contest when quarterback Carr led the Raiders down the field on an impressive drive to get the Raiders into overtime. On 3rd and goal from the 6 out of the two-minute warning, Derek Carr found Foster Moreau for the touchdown. Carr had 295 yards on 3 touchdowns. Seattle got the ball back twice however each time Raiders defensive end Maxx Crosby wreaked havoc sacking Geno Smith twice. Crosby gave Jacobs and the Raiders a chance and that was all the Raiders needed to seal the victory. The loss has major implications for Seattle as they suffer their second straight loss with it bringing their record to 6-5 and it knocked them out of the playoffs as of today. However, there is still so much of the season left to play. Raiders improved their record to 4-7 and they have a big divisional game next Sunday in Las Vegas against the Chargers,
