Josh Jacobs, Raiders hope to run past Chargers

Josh Jacobs deserved to be off his feet this week.

Coming off a record-breaking performance and workload that likely aggravated his calf strain, Jacobs is expected to be back in uniform for the Las Vegas Raiders when they host the Los Angeles Chargers on Sunday.

Jacobs rushed for a franchise-record 229 yards and two touchdowns on 33 carries in a 40-34 overtime win against the Seattle Seahawks last Sunday, scoring the game-winning TD on an 86-yard run.

Jacobs also caught seven passes for 74 yards, giving him 303 yards from scrimmage, another franchise record and the seventh-highest total in the Super Bowl era.

The league leader in rushing yards and yards from scrimmage wasn’t expected to practice much in the days leading up to the rematch with the Chargers.

Jacobs rushed for 57 yards on just 10 carries in Las Vegas’ 24-19 loss to the Chargers in the season opener. The Raiders fell behind 17-3 at the half before abandoning the run in the second half.

The Raiders started the season with three straight losses, thought they were back on track after winning two of three, but then lost three in a row again.

Las Vegas (4-7) has bounced back with two straight wins in overtime, both on the road, keeping its playoff hopes alive.

“This doesn’t guarantee us anything going forward,” Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said. “We’re going to stick with our process, we think we have a really close-knit group here that works hard, we believe in what we’re doing, we believe in what we’re coaching, we believe in trying to win the way we’re trying to win, and I think our guys do, too.”

The Chargers (6-5) are also trying to build off an emotional win.

Los Angeles elected to try for a two-point conversion, rather than a game-tying point-after, with 15 seconds left against the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday, and the gamble succeeded. Justin Herbert’s pass to Gerald Everett gave the Chargers a 25-24 road win that prevented them from losing three in a row.

“We’re just living week to week,” Chargers coach Brandon Staley said. “It was about this game for us and pouring (everything) into this game and doing what we felt like was going to win us the football game.”

Herbert is coming off one of his better performances this season, as he completed 35 of 47 passes for 274 yards and three touchdowns with no interceptions.

The only other time this season that Herbert threw at least three touchdown passes without an interception was in the season-opening win against the Raiders.

Keenan Allen is also back in rhythm with Herbert after the veteran wide receiver missed a month due to a hamstring injury, and running back Austin Ekeler continues to be a multi-pronged threat for Los Angeles, much as Jacobs has been for the Raiders.

Ekeler said all that matters is adding to the victory total.

“At this point, all games for us are like a must-win,” Ekeler said. “You see the rest of the AFC winning games … we got to catch up a few.”

The Chargers could be thin on the offensive line, however.

Los Angeles center Corey Linsley was still in concussion protocol on Wednesday. Right tackle Trey Pipkins III aggravated a left knee injury against Arizona, and the Chargers plan to be cautious with his return to practice, Staley said.

Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) also didn’t practice on Wednesday and is in jeopardy of missing a second straight game.

Raiders cornerback Nate Hobbs, out since mid-October due to a hand injury, hopes to return to action on Sunday.

After rolling over 300, Raiders RB Josh Jacobs (calf) resting all week

NFL rushing leader Josh Jacobs will not practice this week due to a calf strain, but hopes to be in the Raiders’ lineup on Sunday against the Los Angeles Chargers.

Jacobs capped a 303-yard day with an 86-yard walk-off touchdown run in overtime to lift Las Vegas over the Seattle Seahawks last week. He logged 33 carries for 229 yards and two touchdowns and caught six passes for 74 yards.

He did it all with a calf strain suffered two days before the game and nearly opted to sit out to rest the injury before his historic performance.

“It’s kind of crazy coming in and not knowing if I was going to play,” Jacobs said postgame. “Looking the guys in the eyes, telling them that they’re going to get everything they got out of me. They didn’t want me to finish the game, but I kind of convinced them that I could go.”

Jacobs’ 1,159 rushing yards and 1,484 yards from scrimmage rank first in the NFL. He rushed for 132 yards against the Chargers in the 2021 regular-season finale.

He came out of the Seattle game nursing the same calf injury, and if he practices at all the rest of the week, it would be in a limited fashion, NFL Network reported Tuesday.

The Raiders declined the fifth-year option on Jacobs’ contract in April, making him eligible for free agency in March. He’s in the final season of a four-year, $11.9 million deal signed as the 24th overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft.

Jacobs, 24, has a base salary in 2022 of $2.1 million.

Josh Jacobs dominates Seahawks, hands Raiders OT victory

Josh Jacobs scored on an 86-yard run with 4:20 left in overtime to give the Las Vegas Raiders a 40-34 victory against the host Seattle Seahawks on Sunday afternoon.

Jacobs carried 33 times for 229 yards and two touchdowns for the Raiders (4-7), who won in OT for the second consecutive week.

Derek Carr overcame two first-quarter interceptions to complete 25 of 36 passes for 295 yards and three touchdowns.

The Seahawks (6-5) lost their second in a row and fell out of a first-place tie in the NFC West.

Seattle’s Geno Smith was 27-of-37 passing for 328 yards and two TDs. Rookie Kenneth Walker III rushed for two scores.

The Raiders got the ball first in overtime and moved to Seattle’s 37-yard line before the drive stalled. Daniel Carlson’s 56-yard field-goal attempt was wide right.

The Seahawks went three-and-out and had to punt to Las Vegas’ 14-yard line. On the next play, Jacobs went up the middle and was hardly touched on his way to the end zone.

Carr threw a 5-yard scoring strike to Foster Moreau with 1:54 remaining in regulation to tie the score.

That came after Smith threw an 18-yard TD pass to Travis Homer with 5:37 left to break a 27-all deadlock.

The first three quarters went back and forth, with neither team leading by more than eight points.

The Seahawks opened the scoring on a 12-yard run by Walker before the Raiders responded with an 18-yard pass from Carr to Ameer Abdullah.

The Seahawks took a 13-7 lead as Jason Myers kicked 24- and 34-yard field goals.

The Raiders took their first lead as Carr threw a 36-yard touchdown pass to a wide-open Mack Hollins on a flea flicker.

Jacobs scored on a 30-yard run one play after Denzel Perryman intercepted Smith to give the Raiders a 21-13 advantage midway through the second quarter.

Smith hit Tyler Lockett with a 35-yard scoring strike before Carlson kicked a 36-yard field goal with 10 seconds left in the half to give Las Vegas a 24-20 lead.

Walker scored on a 14-yard run on Seattle’s first possession of the second half.

Carlson’s 25-yard field goal tied it at 27-all heading into the fourth quarter.

Raiders look to carry momentum into meeting with rested Seahawks

Derek Carr’s options were limited.

With tight end Darren Waller and wide receiver Hunter Renfrow on injured reserve, Carr had one place to go in overtime last week at Denver.

Carr hit Davante Adams with a 35-yard scoring strike, giving Las Vegas a 22-16 overtime victory that snapped a three-game skid.

The Raiders (3-7) will look to continue on a positive path when they travel to the Pacific Northwest to play the Seattle Seahawks (6-4), the NFC West co-leaders, on Sunday afternoon.

“I’ve played with a lot of receivers in my nine-year career, a lot of smart guys,” Carr said. “But Davante, he can see it like a quarterback.”

Perhaps that’s why Adams was open by 11.9 yards on the winning score, according to Next Gen Stats, the largest amount of separation for an overtime touchdown since the NFL began tracking that in 2016.

Adams said the route was the same he ran in the second quarter to the other side of the field, beating Broncos cornerback Patrick Surtain II.

“The call was to read what was going on with his leverage and the coverage, but it was based on something we had seen earlier in the game,” Adams said. “Just kind of marrying the concepts together.”

The Raiders also got a big game from Josh Jacobs, who rushed for 109 yards and caught three passes for 51 yards.

“To me, one of the most impressive things about him is he never asks to come out of a game,” Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said of Jacobs, who had all 24 of Vegas’ rushing attempts against the Broncos. “I’ve coached for a while, and that’s a tough position to play and to never come out because you get hit a lot and you get banged about and guys are falling on you and all the rest of it.”

Jacobs could be the key Sunday, as all four of Seattle’s losses have come when it allows more than 150 yards rushing.

The Seahawks had a bye last week after having a four-game winning streak snapped in a 21-16 loss to Tampa Bay on Nov. 13 in the NFL’s first regular-season game played in Germany.

“We’re in the middle of the season, and we’re doing the things we need to do,” Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said. “Really, really pleased with our guys and think they’ve done a great job.”

Tops on that list is quarterback Geno Smith, who took over after Russell Wilson was traded to Denver in the offseason.

Smith entered the bye leading the league in completion percentage (72.8) and was second in passer rating (108.0) and fifth in yards passing (2,474).

Not bad for someone who had started just five games over the previous seven seasons.

“I think it’s a mixture of talent and mental stability. I think those things are coming into a good combination right now,” Smith said. “I’ve always had those two things, so it’s more so just me being in the light versus doing it in the shadows.”

Both the Raiders and Seahawks are relatively healthy. Las Vegas offensive tackle Kolton Miller (shoulder/abdomen), who missed the Denver game, was a limited participant in practice this week, as was linebacker Luke Masterson (ribs). Seattle wide receiver Dee Eskridge (hand) and defensive end L.J. Collier (illness) missed practice.

Raiders dispatch Broncos in OT

Derek Carr threw a 35-yard touchdown pass to Davante Adams in overtime, and the visiting Las Vegas Raiders beat the Denver Broncos 22-16 on Sunday.

Carr finished 23-for-37 passing for 307 yards and two touchdowns, both to Adams, who had seven catches for 141 yards. Josh Jacobs rushed for 109 yards and Daniel Carlson kicked three field goals for Las Vegas (3-7).

Russell Wilson was 24-for-31 passing for 247 yards, Latavius Murray rushed for 49 yards and a score and Brandon McManus kicked three field goals for the Broncos (3-7).

The Raiders got the ball first in overtime, and on the third play Carr found a wide-open Adams for the winning score just 1:36 into the extra session.

The Broncos went ahead on their opening drive of the game, going 92 yards on seven plays with Murray finishing it with a one-yard TD run to make it 7-0.

It was the first time this season Denver has scored on its first drive of the game.

Carlson missed a 46-yarder to break a streak of 41 straight, which was the longest active streak in the NFL, and McManus kicked a 48-yarder to make it 10-0 early in the second quarter, but Las Vegas responded.

The Raiders drove to the Denver 31-yard line when Carr hit Adams to cut the deficit to 10-7.

The Broncos had a chance to add to the lead at the end of the half but Las Vegas blocked McManus’ 25-yard field goal attempt.

Denver muffed the second half kickoff and was forced to punt from its own 12, giving the Raiders the ball near midfield. Five plays later Carlson tied it with a 52-yard field goal.

McManus matched Carlson with a 52-yard field goal on the first play of the fourth quarter to make it 13-10.

Carlson answered that with a career-long 57-yard field goal to tie it with 7:11 left, and McManus again put the Broncos ahead with a 48-yarder with 3:30 left.

Las Vegas then went 71 yards in 1:27 to set up Carlson’s 25-yarder to send it to overtime.

Woebegone Broncos, Raiders clamor for success

Raiders Week in Denver arrived with little fanfare as the AFC West rivals prepare to face off with a combined record of 5-13 in 2022.

Las Vegas comes to town as the conversation stirs around both franchises is fixed more on survival than superiority.

The ones trying to survive might be the head coaches.

The Broncos (3-6) and Raiders (2-7) meet in Denver on Sunday with playoff hopes all but extinguished.

Josh McDaniels took over a Las Vegas team that made the playoffs under an interim coach last season but has suffered some bad losses to publicly put his job in jeopardy.

The drumbeat for McDaniels, who coached the Broncos in 2009-10 for 28 games before being fired, got louder when his Raiders lost to Indianapolis — at home — last week. The Colts played their first game under interim Jeff Saturday, who had never been a coach of any kind beyond high school.

Las Vegas owner Mark Davis has given McDaniels a vote of confidence.

“People in today’s world want instant gratification. The guy’s coached nine games. We’re 2-7, not the results we’re looking for but at the same time we’ve lost six one-score games with the ball and a chance to win at the end,” Davis told ESPN.

One of the Raiders’ wins was over Denver on Oct. 2, a 32-23 victory that was the high-water mark for the Broncos’ offense this season. Denver is averaging an NFL-worst 14.6 points, which has wasted a defense that holds opponents to the fewest per game (16.6).

The Broncos acquired Russell Wilson from Seattle in the offseason to solve their quarterback quandary. But the offense has produced just 12 touchdowns in nine games.

While Denver sinks, Wilson and head coach Nathaniel Hackett, in his first year as a head coach, are having trouble getting in sync.

“We’re close, but that’s not what we’re here for,” Hackett said. “We’re not here to be No. 1 in close games. We’re here to win football games. … We’ve got to get this stuff fixed.”

That task was made more difficult with injuries to the offense. KJ Hamler (hamstring) and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) are hurt, with Hamler expected to miss a few weeks, further depleting the wide receiver corps.

The offensive line has been hit hard by injuries, too. Center Lloyd Cushenberry III was placed on injured reserve on Nov. 8, guard Graham Glasgow left Sunday’s loss at Tennessee with a shoulder injury and guard Billy Turner was placed on IR on Monday with a knee injury.

Denver lost tackle Garrett Bolles for the season with a broken leg suffered Oct. 6.

Glasgow was able to practice limitedly Wednesday, so his chances of playing Sunday are improving. He is listed as questionable, as is safety Justin Simmons, who has been in and out of the lineup this year.

Simmons missed the Broncos’ most recent game, a 17-10 loss to the Titans, with a knee injury but practiced Wednesday.

Raiders running back Brandon Bolden did not practice on Wednesday for personal reasons, while receiver Davante Adams (abdomen) was limited. Linebacker Denzel Perryman (hip/ribs) was also limited.

Raiders owner: Coach Josh McDaniels ‘doing a fantastic job’

Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis said Monday he has “no issues” with the performance of first-year coach Josh McDaniels, despite the team’s 2-7 record.

Davis told the Las Vegas Review-Journal that he hasn’t soured on McDaniels, the former Denver Broncos head coach and longtime offensive coordinator of the New England Patriots.

It’s been a rough first half of the season for the Raiders. Six of their seven defeats have been by a touchdown or less, including Sunday’s 25-20 loss to the equally disappointing Indianapolis Colts at home on Sunday. Those six defeats have been by a total of 26 points.

The Raiders hired McDaniels on Jan. 31 to replace interim coach Rich Bisaccia, who guided the team to a postseason berth in 2021. The previous head coach, Jon Gruden, was fired in October after he was found to have sent inflammatory emails.

“As far as Josh goes, I have no issues,” Davis said. “I’m getting to know him a lot better. When you sign someone to a contract, don’t you expect him to fulfill the contract?”

The Review-Journal said McDaniels, 46, signed a four-year contract.

“I like Josh. I think he’s doing a fantastic job. That’s why I hired him,” Davis told the newspaper. “We did an exhaustive search and found the person we believe is going to bring the Raiders to greatness.”

The Raiders had two coaches — John Madden and Tom Flores, who combined to win three Super Bowls — in the 19-season span from 1969-87. Since Flores’ departure, the Raiders have made 17 head-coaching hires or promotions for interim head coaches in 35 seasons.

The team lost in the Super Bowl following the 2002 season under head coach Bill Callahan. They have just two playoff appearances — both wild-card losses — since.

When asked, Davis said he believes McDaniels can fill the job for the long term, replying, “Why wouldn’t I?”

Matt Ryan, Colts top Raiders in Jeff Saturday’s coaching debut

Matt Ryan’s 35-yard touchdown pass to Parris Campbell with just over five minutes left rallied the visiting Indianapolis Colts to a 25-20 win over the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

Ryan went 21-for-28 passing for 222 yards with one touchdown passing and one rushing, while Jonathan Taylor rushed for 147 yards, including a 66-yard touchdown, on 22 carries.

Campbell finished with seven receptions for 76 yards as the Colts (4-5-1) ended a three-game losing streak by giving interim coach Jeff Saturday the first win of his coaching career.

Derek Carr went 24-for-38 passing for 248 yards and two touchdowns, while Davante Adams finished with nine receptions for 126 yards for the Raiders (2-7), who dropped their third straight game. Josh Jacobs rushed for 78 yards and a score on 21 carries.

Ryan was playing his first game since injuring his shoulder against the Tennessee Titans on Oct. 23. It was Taylor’s first game after being sidelined with an injured ankle following a loss to the Washington Commanders on Oct. 30.

Trailing 13-7 at halftime, the Raiders took a 14-13 lead on Jacobs’ 1-yard touchdown run with 1:51 left in the third quarter.

The Colts responded two plays later. Taylor broke free for a 66-yard touchdown run, giving Indianapolis a 19-14 lead after a failed two-point conversion with just over a minute left in the third quarter.

The Raiders regained the lead when Carr hit Adams on a 48-yard touchdown for a 20-19 advantage after their own failed two-point conversion with 11:36 left in the game.

Ryan gave the Colts the lead for good when he found Campbell across the middle for a 35-yard touchdown with 5:07 left. They failed to convert on another two-point try.

The Raiders’ final drive ended when Stephon Gilmore broke up Carr’s fourth-down pass intended for Adams in the end zone with 47 seconds left.

The Colts took a 7-0 lead on Ryan’s 1-yard sneak with 3:17 left in the first quarter.

Chase McLaughlin’s 48-yard field goal extended the Colts’ lead to 10-0 with 12:38 left in the second quarter.

The Raiders pulled to within 10-7 when Foster Moreau made a diving catch in the end zone to snare Carr’s 4-yard pass with 58 seconds left in the half.

McLaughlin’s 48-yard field goal as time expired in the first half pushed Indianapolis’ advantage to 13-7.

Reports: Raiders put Darren Waller, Hunter Renfrow on IR

The Las Vegas Raiders placed tight end Darren Waller on injured reserve Thursday, according to reports, adding four more games to the three he’s already missed while trying to recover from a hamstring injury.

Additionally, the team also placed wideout Hunter Renfrow on IR with an oblique injury, multiple outlets reported. He, too, will have to miss at least four games.

Waller has not played since Week 5, when he recorded eight offensive snaps against the Kansas City Chiefs. Waller has been a game-time decision the past two weeks but was inactive for both after testing the hamstring in pregame warmups.

“It’s not like I’m doing anything to keep myself off the field willingly,” Waller told ESPN on Wednesday. “I’m doing everything that I can. It just may not be happening in the timetable that I’d like for that to happen.”

Waller, 30, signed a three-year, $51 million extension at the end of training camp.

He has 16 catches for 175 yards and a touchdown in five games (four starts). Waller earned his lone Pro Bowl selection in 2020, when he caught 107 passes for 1,196 yards and nine touchdowns.

He has 3,359 receiving yards and 17 TDs in 70 career games (50 starts) with the Baltimore Ravens (2015-16) and Raiders.

Renfrow, 26, has 21 catches for 192 yards in six games (one start). He missed two games earlier this season with a concussion.

Renfrow also signed a contract extension ahead of the 2022 season, a two-year, $32 million deal with $21 million in guaranteed money.

Newly announced interim head coach Jeff Saturday greets media members following a press conference on Monday, Nov. 7, 2022, during a press conference at the Colts headquarters in Indianapolis.

After coaching change, Colts aim for win vs. Raiders

The Indianapolis Colts hope a coaching change will enable them to avoid falling out of contention in the AFC South when they visit the equally struggling Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday.

The Colts (3-5-1) fired fifth-year coach Frank Reich on Monday and replaced him with interim coach Jeff Saturday following Indianapolis’ third straight defeat, a 26-3 pummeling at New England.

Indianapolis went 0-for-14 on third-down conversions, the second-worst mark in NFL history. The Colts also mustered just 121 yards of total offense, their lowest total since 1997.

The Colts have really struggled offensively. They rank last in points per game (14.7) and 30th in yards per play (4.8) and yards per rush (3.7).

Parks Frazier, the Colts’ passing game specialist and assistant quarterbacks coach, will call plays on Sunday, Saturday said.

Indianapolis was expected to contend for the AFC South Division title after it traded for four-time Pro Bowl quarterback Matt Ryan to pair with Jonathan Taylor, who led the league in rushing yards (1,811) and rushing touchdowns (18) last season.

But Ryan’s poor play and injured shoulder caused him to be benched in favor of Sam Ehlinger, who went 15-for-29 passing for 103 yards and an interception against the Patriots.

“The only thing I can control is me and that’s what I can focus on because that’s my job and it’s a big job,” Ehlinger said. “You can’t let any outside noise get in the way of that because if I do, I’m only hurting the team.”

Meantime, Taylor, who missed Sunday’s game with an injured ankle and is questionable to face the Raiders, is 21st in the league with 462 rushing yards and has scored just one touchdown in six games. He also has 16 catches for 71 yards and no scores this year after catching 40 passes for 360 yards and two touchdowns last season.

Still, the Colts are in second place in the AFC South, behind the Tennessee Titans (5-3).

This season hasn’t gone much better for the Raiders (2-6), who squandered a 17-0, second-quarter lead in a 27-20 loss at Jacksonville, marking Vegas’ second straight loss and third in its past four games.

While the Raiders have averaged 22.9 points per game, they rank in the bottom six in the league in yards allowed (371.3) and points allowed (25.1).

Derek Carr has completed 62.3 percent of his passes for 1,880 yards with 11 touchdowns and five interceptions, with his favorite target being his former teammate at Fresno State, Davante Adams.

The five-time Pro Bowler who the Raiders acquired in a trade with the Green Bay Packers is tied for first in the NFL with seven receiving touchdowns, is eighth in receiving yards (658) and ninth in catches (48).

The Raiders, who lost in the wild-card round of the playoffs last year, are in last place in the AFC West, already four games behind the first-place Chiefs (6-2).

“I definitely am not going to go in there and panic and say we need to uproot everything we’ve done. That’s not really the right thing to do,” Raiders coach Josh McDaniels said. “There’s things we’re doing very well, there’s things that we need to do better. And I think for us to try to figure out what those are and then address them and address them in the right way.

For the Raiders, linebacker Darien Butler (hip), receivers Keelan Cole (knee) and Hunter Renfrow (hamstring/ribs) and tight end Darren Waller (hamstring) were limited in practice on Wednesday, while linebacker Denzel Perryman (hip/ribs) was held out.

Tight end Mo Alie-Cox (ankle), cornerback Tony Brown (hamstring), running back Deon Jackson (knee) and quarterback Matt Ryan (shoulder) didn’t practice on Wednesday for the Colts. Taylor (ankle) was limited.
