If it seems like every week Josh Jacobs and Darren Waller are setting Raiders franchise marks, it’s because the pretty much are. Let’s start with Jacobs.
In week four he surpassed Darren McFadden for the most rushing yards by a Raiders rookie in his first six games. In week five, he surpassed Marcus Allen. This week he ran for 124 yards to give him 554 yards for the season, surpassing Bo Jackson for the most rushing yards by a Raiders rookie over his first six games.
It was also Jacobs’s third game with at least 100 yards of offense, tying him with Marcus Allen for the most by a Raiders player over his first six games.
Waller’s accomplishment might be even more special. He had 7 catches in the game, giving him 44 on the season. That surpasses Tim Brown for the most receptions over the first six games of the season in franchise history. It’s impressive not just because how many seasons Tim Brown had to set and surpass that mark and he is a Hall of Fame wide receiver. Waller is a tight end in his first full season with the team.
Along with his second 100-yard game of the season, Waller had his first and second touchdown as a Raider.
