After coming out of Monday night’s Las Vegas Raiders vs. Baltimore Ravens game briefly nursing what looked to be foot pain, Josh Jacobs has come back and played sparingly. So far at half-time, Jacobs has five attempts for 18 yards against the Ravens’ fierce run defense.
That being said, Jacobs’ most impactful play came on a two-yard run to pay first. Rushing for a score with 4:38 left on the play clock in the first half, Jacobs is now the proud owner of the very first Raiders touchdown with fans at Allegiant Stadium.
The battered offensive line has struggled opening running lanes but with the help of a “slice” block from Foster Moreau, the Silver and Black run game got the yardage when it mattered.

The Raiders offense will need a continued effort from Jacobs and ground game in order to keep the clock running and potentially keep the Ravens off the field.
Josh Jacobs is banged up so perhaps a heavier dose of Kenyan Drake moving forward.
