Josh Jacobs leads the NFL in rushing with 1,159 yards. That’s more than double the Chargers’ leader, Austin Ekeler, who has 554. Jacobs ran for 229 yards last weekend in an overtime win at Seattle.

The Chargers have surrendered an average of 183 yards on the ground in their last five games, a porous stretch that has sent them down to 28th in rushing defense. Given all of that information, the Raiders’ strategy entering this game would seem obvious.

Chargers coach Brandon Staley said, “He has an elite runner who breaks up a lot of tackles.” “You can’t block everything perfectly. You have to have running backs that can make it on their own. Josh is as good at it as anybody because he can miss you and he can run through you.

Jacobs had a single-game season-low tying 10 carries when the teams met at SoFi Stadium in Week 1, a 24–19 Chargers victory. That day, Las Vegas fell behind by two touchdowns in the second quarter and was largely overcome by its running game.

The combination of Jacobs and Derek Carr-to-Davent Adams would be the ideal afternoon for the Raiders. Adams caught 10 passes for 141 yards in that Week 1 game against the Chargers.
