The Las Vegas Raiders seem to have found their new franchise RB in Josh Jacobs, who just tallied 1,150 yards in just 13 games as a rookie.
The Raiders have had some promising running backs in recent years, but none that really stuck as long-term workhorses.
That doesn't mean they haven't had backs show flashes of greatness, though. These are the three best single-game rushing performances for Raiders players since 2010.
3. Rashad Jennings: Nov. 17, 2013
Rashad Jennings only made a brief one-year sojourn in Oakland between his three years with the Jacksonville Jaguars and his three with the New York Giants. It was one of his better NFL seasons, running for 733 yards and a career-best 6 touchdowns. The clear highlight was his Week 11 matchup with the Houston Texans, when he notched season-highs marks in both carries (22) and rushing yards (150). Those 6.8 yards per carry were also the most he averaged in any game in which he saw at least 5 carries that year.
2. Darren McFadden: Sep. 25, 2011
Darren McFadden's 171 yards against the New York Jets in Week 3 of the 2011 NFL season are actually the highest single-game total for a Raiders running back since 2010. He hit that mark on 19 carries (9.0 yards per carry), finding the end zone twice in a 34-24 victory.
1. Darren McFadden: Oct. 24, 2010
Second in yards in that stretch was another McFadden performance — this one from Week 7 of the 2010 season. McFadden tallied just 6 fewer yards (165) on 3 fewer carries (16). That gave him an average of 10.3 yards per rush, and he rushed for 3 touchdowns on the day (adding 1 more as a receiver). He had two rushes of 40-plus yards on the day, and it was all the sweeter because it came against the division rival Denver Broncos.
