Josh Jacobs Ends His Spectacular Day with Walk Off TD!
The Las Vegas Raiders defeated the Seattle Seahawks in overtime, 40-34, thanks to the walk-off touchdown by former Alabama running back Joshua Jacobs. Jacobs had 33 carries for 229 yards, 74 yards receiving, and two touchdowns, including the game-winning 86-yarder. The Raiders improved to 4-7 on the season and third in the AFC West with the victory.
Jacobs has developed as one of the NFL's top running backs since his arrival in 2019. This season, he is third in rushing attempts and yards, and he is tied for fifth in rushing touchdowns. His running yards and carries against the Seahawks were career highs for him.
Coming into this game, the Seahawks' 21st-ranked rush defense was one of the worst in the league and the Raiders' rushing offense was ranked 26th in rushing yards but 8th in rushing yards per attempt. It's not surprising that Josh Jacobs was able to pick apart Seattle, but what is surprising is how dominant he looked and how difficult it was for Seahawks defenders to bring the five-foot-220-pound running back down.
Josh Jacobs is in the final year of his deal with the Raiders and is eager to prove that he is worth the money. If the Raiders don't sign him, there will be other squads that would love to have him given the way he's playing right now.
