Each and every week, Josh Jacobs continues to prove that he is among the best running backs in the NFL. Over the last three weeks, Jacobs has been dominant as he has helped lead the team to three-straight wins as he 334 yards and three touchdowns.

But Jacobs isn’t just a flash in the pan. He’s been dominating ever since he came into the NFL. According to Pro Football Focus, no running back in the NFL has forced more missed tackle than Josh Jacobs (102) since the start of the 2019 season. The next closest is Derrick Henry of the Tennessee Titans at 92.

While Jacobs has ten more forced missed tackles than Henry, what is even more impressive is that he has done it on 80 fewer carries. Jacobs continues to find ways to make defenders miss and nobody moves a pile better than him.

If the Raiders want to upset the Chiefs tonight, they are going to need their star running back to shoulder the load once again. If he can move the chains and keep the clock moving, Las Vegas will have a chance to steal this game.

Jacobs continues to be one of the league’s best running backs and has been a force from the moment he was drafted. Jacobs is on his way to his first Pro Bowl nomination this season and more importantly, a playoff berth.
