There has been a lot of problems for the Las Vegas Raiders’ this season and the running game has surprisingly been a major issue.

That, of course, was not expected with the presence of standout running back Josh Jacobs in the offense. but it’s just not working this season. According to Pro Football Focus, the Raiders have the fewest carries of 10-plus yards this season in the NFL with just seven.

Overall, Jacobs has just 347 rushing yards on 118 carries this season. He is averaging 2.9 yards a carry and is on pace for 842 yards after leading the NFL with 1,653 yards last season.

Something has to change soon.
