Jalen Richard approaching Bo Jackson, Tim Brown numbers and other Raiders player milestones within reach in season finale

New, comments

After covering the franchise marks that the Raiders can reach as a team Sunday in Denver, now we look at those player milestones that would put them in the Franchise record books.

Michael Crabtree

  • He is 44 yards away from his second ever 1000-yard season and first as a Raider. He is 150 yards away from new career high (1106).
  • Should Crabtree reach the 1000-yard mark, he and Amari Cooper would become the first Raiders receiving duo to reach 1000 yards each since Jerry Rice and Tim Brown in 2001. Crab and Coop are already the Raiders’ first duo to reach 900 yards in consecutive seasons since the Hall of Fame duo of Brown/Rice in 01-02.
  • Six receptions would give Crabtree 90 on the season which would put him in the top five in franchise history for receptions in a single season. The next three receptions after that would each move him up another spot with 93 giving him sole possession of third all-time just below Tim Brown (104, 1997) and Todd Christensen (95, 1983).

Jalen Richard

  • The undrafted rookie running back is 12 yards from reaching 500 yards rushing on the season, which would surpass Darren McFadden (499) for 7th most rushing yards by a rookie in Raiders history. Richard needs 48 yards to move ahead of Napoleon McCallum (536) into the franchise top five. Next up would be Bo Jackson (554).
  • Richard currently averages 6.1 yards per carry with 80 attempts. Should he remain at that yards per carry average, it would be the second highest for a running back in a season in franchise history (minimum 75 carries) behind only Bo Jackson (6.8 ypc) in 1987.
  • Three punt returns in the finale from Jalen Richard would give him 35 on the season and move him into the top five in franchise history in punt returns by a rookie in a season. Five returns would move him into top three.
  • Richard’s 288 punt return yards are already top five for a rookie in franchise history. Another 26 yards in the finale would move him into the top four, just behind Tim Brown’s 444 yards which had him in the Pro Bowl in 1988.
  • As for that Pro Bowl rookie season for Tim Brown, he averaged 9.1 yards per return, which is fifth most in franchise history for a rookie. Richard is sitting at 9.0 yards per return which means depending on how he performs in the finale, he could potentially surpass Brown in that category and bump him out of the top five rookie return averages.
  • Richard is already fourth in franchise history among rookies with 1377 combined net yards (rushing, receiving, punt returns, kick returns). Moving up to third would be a tall task. He would need 529 yards in the finale to surpass Jacoby Ford’s 2010 mark of 1905.

DeAndre Washington

  • He had two rushing touchdowns last week. If he can do it again in the finale, he would have four on the season and jump into the top five in franchise history for rookie rushing touchdowns.
  • If Washington has a game like he did last week against the Colts, he and Richard could conceivably BOTH move into the franchise rookie top five in rushing yards. Washington needs 113 yards to do it. That would be something.

Latavius Murray

  • His 12 rushing touchdowns this season is currently tied with Marcus Allen (1990) for third in franchise history in a single season. One more would tie him for second in franchise history, also with Allen (1984), behind only Pete Banaszak’s franchise record 16 rushing touchdowns (1975).

Khalil Mack

  • He moved into third in franchise history for sacks in a season last season with 15.0. He has 11.0 this season. Should he have 2.0 sacks in the finale, he would move into a tie for fourth, just behind the mark he set last season.
  • Mack is already the first Raiders player since Derrick Burgess in 2006 to put up consecutive seasons in double digit sacks.
  • Mack currently leads the league in with 25 QB hits. He is also second in the league in forced fumbles (5) and takeaways (6).

Bruce Irvin

  • He has 7.0 sacks this season. One sack in the finale would match a career high for him. He has said he wants badly to reach 10.0 on the season. Should he somehow manage to get 3.0 sacks Sunday, he and Mack would be the first Raiders pass rushers to reach double digit sacks in a season since Derrick Burgess and Warren Sapp in 2006.
  • He is also tied with Mack for the second most forced fumbles (5) on the season.

Marquette King

  • One more punt inside the 20-yard-line will give King 30 on the season and have him occupying three of the Raiders top five seasons for punts inside the 20. He set the franchise record last season with 40 punts inside the 20. Two punts inside the 20 this week would tie him with his 2014 mark (31).
