In a West AFC game, the Oakland Raiders beat Los Angeles Chargers (24-26) to open the 10th week of the NFL.
Jon Gruden’s men took the lead one minute from the end thanks to 18-yard touchdown at rookie Josh Jacobs’ race, allowing them to post a positive record (5 wins-4 losses).
On the Chargers side, quarterback Philipp Rivers, having started with two interceptions, finished on … an interception.
His team sees the playoffs move away (4 wins-6 losses).
The Raiders had three first-round picks in the last draft, but their quality choices go much further.
Of course, we need to start with the immediate impact of running back Josh Jacobs, who has already broken the franchise record of the legendary Marcus Allen (697) for the
highest total of rushing yards by a rookie.
