GLENDALE, Ariz. – Josh Jacobs' first three NFL carries came all in a row. Each one took yards in chunks, as the Raiders running back slashed through Arizona's defense like a hot knife through butter.
All that running pulled the Cardinals in close. That's when Derek Carr let it fly. He sent a long bomb to Tyrell Williams down the left sideline, and finished the scoring drive with a 13-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant.
Jacobs, Jacobs, Jacobs. Deep shot. Jacobs. Touchdown.
That's exactly how you draw it up.
Williams' catch was a beauty.

The Raiders marched 75 yards on six plays on that all-too-easy drive.
Jacobs ended up with 21 yards on four carries, and Carr completed both of his passes for 40 yards and a touchdown.
The offense sat back down after that series, and likely will play a bit more next week in Winnipeg and shut it down for the exhibition finale in Seattle.
