Bruce Irvin grabs league lead in forced fumbles and other Raiders players milestones and franchise marks reached in finale

New, comments

A few Raiders players were approaching personal milestones and franchise marks in the season finale. Let’s see which of those milestones and marks were reached.

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.

Met? Yes

Just got it. Crabtree had 47 yards on 5 catches to finish the season with 1003 yards receiving. Hopefully he gets some kind of incentive bonus that he can use to get him a new necklace

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).

Met? No.

He was just shy, with 5 catches to give him 89 on the season.

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).

Met? No.

Richard had just 3 yards on 3 carries in the game, giving him 491 on the season. Not too shabby though for an undrafted rookie.

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.

Met? Yes

His 1.0 yard per carry in the game on three carries dipped him down to 5.9 yards per carry, but that is still good for the second highest yards per carry for a rookie running back in Raiders franchise history.

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.

Met? No

He had two punt returns in the game, falling just shy of the top five.

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.

Met? No.

He had 18 yards on two punt returns. But his 306 is top five which still gets him in the record books.

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.

Met? No.

Richard averaged exactly 9.0 yards per return in the game, keeping him at his season average; just shy of Brown and the top five.

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.

Met? Uh, no.

Richard had 22 combined yards in the game — 18 yards in punt returns, 3 yards rushing, 1 yard on 1 catch. Giving him 1399 combined net yards this season; fourth most in franchise history for a rookie.

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.

Met? No

He had no scores.

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.

Met? No.

Washington had 43 yards on 7 carries to finish with 467 yards rushing on the season.

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).

Met? No

No scores for Murray in the game; finishing third in franchise history with 12 rushing touchdowns on the season.

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.

Met? No.

He had no sacks in the game.

Mack is already the first Raiders player since Derrick Burgess in 2006 to put up consecutive seasons in double digit sacks.

Mack is currently second in the league with 25 QB hits. He is also second in the league in forced fumbles (5) and takeaways (6).

Met? N/A

Mack had one QB hit to finish the season with 26, tied for the second most and the most among players with double digit sacks.

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.

Met? No

Irvin had no sacks in the game.

He is also tied with Mack for the second most forced fumbles (5) on the season; one of the league lead.

Met? Yes

Irvin forced his sixth fumble in the game, finishing as the league leader in the category.

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).

Met? Yes

King had 5 of his 8 punts in the game stopped inside the 20, giving him 34 on the season; second most in a season in Raiders franchise history, moving ahead of Shane Lechler’s 2008 mark (33) and behind only King’s own franchise record 40.
