Raiders running back Josh Jacobs had not just the best game of his career, but one of the best games any running back will ever play in today’s win over the Seahawks.

Jacobs had 33 carries for 229 yards, six catches for 74 yards, and finished the game with an 86-yard touchdown run in overtime, as the Raiders beat the Seahawks 40-34.

Jacobs’ 303 yards from scrimmage were the eighth-most in any game in NFL history.

Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams also had a strong game, including a sensational catch along the sideline that was one of the best plays of this NFL season.

For the Seahawks, quarterback Geno Smith had another good game, and rookie running back Kenneth Walker scored two touchdowns, but it was a disappointing home loss to a team Seattle thought it should beat.

This Raiders team is going nowhere this season, but the win improved its record to 4-7. Seattle drops to 6-5.

  1. As long as the Raiders dont have a lead, they can win these close games. Carr has an elite history of it. These playcalls on 4th down are horrendous, Mcdaniels getting bailed out by huge plays (jacobs got the dawg in em). Salute too Crosby and the OLine today, bullied the hawks. GG.

  2. Seahawks’ defense is a joke and their OC has completely gone away from three tight ends after Cards.

    Did Metcalf complain?

    Also, just let Crosby completely destroy your rookie tackle but don’t chip him. Brilliant.

  3. A great game! Both teams battled and neither has any reason to hang their heads. Josh Jacobs played an amazing game. I hope that Derek Carr gets credit for his game as well…he seems to take the bulk of the blame when the Raiders lose (not always justified).

  4. The Seahawks run defense FORGOT how to wrap and tackle…..AGAIN! The O-line couldn’t open any holes for Walker two weeks in a row. 😞

  5. Seattle was hosed. DK caught that ball clear as day. Should have never gone to OT.

    Whatever. We already knew it was rigged.

  6. He fumbled the previous series and refs screwed the Seahawks. And Metcalf caught a pass the refs blew a review on. Shady W for the bottom feeding Raiders.

  7. Seattle’s defense really showed they don’t have the talent right now to dictate anything…I’ve seen draft experts projecting Seattle with two defensive players with their two first round picks in the 2023 draft…now I believe it….

    Jacobs channeled his inner Bo Jackson..

    Today is the 35th anniversary of the Bo Jackson tunnel run in Seattle.

  9. I’m betting Ziggy & “McDonald” are kicking themselves right about now after they failed to take the fifth year option on Jacobs. All he has done is become the number one rated running back in PFF, and today (with 303 total yards from scrimmage) had the eighth greatest day by a back in NFL history.

    Enjoy your future 3rd round compensatory pick, LOSERS!!!

  10. Pretty clear that, despite the announcer and Steratore repeatedly not continuing to watch the replay all the way through the first 10 times they showed it, that the ball was not fully controlled all the way thru the catch and out of bounds on the Metcalf play. I saw the ball moving live as he was rolling over as did the defender. Calling it otherwise means you didn’t watch the whole play either or you have a bias of some sort.

  11. Keep chomping that gum Pete!! First and goal with the best running back in the league standing in the backfield. What’s the call Pete? Yea throw it..Wahahahahaha…. That window is CLOSED FOREVER, and that call will follow you FOREVER

  12. The officials were absolutely calling the end of the game in the Raiders favor. Even though Devante Adams made a one hander, Jacobs clearly fumbled. Also Metcalf got hosed on his catch essentially awarding victory to the pathetic Raiders.

  13. The Raiders gain nothing, Seahawks get pushed further out of the playoffs because of horrible officiating.

    The same dingleberries complaining about officiating are celebrating their bottom feeder team victory awarded to them by the corrupt NFL officials.

  14. Then the Jacobs play, while super annoying, is something that happens all the time and by the letter of the rule was correct. Jacobs had been pulled backwards and was no longer attempting to advance the ball forward. Again the broadcast team seemed more concerned in Adam Archulettas birthday than getting a good repeating angle but Steratore said live that an angle he was looking at showed Jacobs’ shin being down anyway.

    Seahawks also scored the Homer TD in the 4th after a phantom 3rd down holding call.

    Raiders ran for 250+ yards and Crosby and Jabobs made huge plays down in 4th quarter and OT. That’s why you lost, not the refs.

    We’re all of the Seahawks wins rigged as well, or just the losses?

  16. Tough loss for Seattle, but nobody had them with a winning record this late in the year before the season started. With a good draft this year, and a bonanza of picks coming from the Wilson heist, suggests the future for the Seahawks isn’t as bleak as many thought before September.

  17. Metcalf catch was not a completion.

    Josh Jacobs fumbled.

    Good win Raiders, the Crosby sack was awesome.

    This game truly was the Raiders Super Bowl. Devante Adams with the one hander and all! Good luck in 2023 Raiders.

  18. LV decided not to pick up JJ’s 5th yr. option due to history of fumbling. Coaching staff obviously thought that habit would continue and drafted White in 3rd rd, expecting to let JJ go at some point. Now they’re in a negotiating bind with one of nfl’s top-5 RB’s. We’ll have to wait to see how they approach his agent now.

  19. Don’t worry about the Seahawks. They have high draft picks for years thanks to Denver. 2 or 3 years from now, they will be a force of nature…if they draft well

    Remind me again why they didn’t pick up his 5th year option?
    ——————————
    A contributing factor beyond what raiderholic said was that JJ had the worst year of his career statistically last season — but Mc-Ziggy decided to ignore the fact JJ was injured for much of the season. This is what happens when analytics take over rational thinking.

    100% wrong, atleast pretend to know what your talking about. he has 6 total fumbles in his 4 year career. he averages 1.5 a year.

    They didnt pick up his option because hes not one of Mcdaniel’s guys and the other ego driven reasons. Not to mention Jacobs didnt have a great year last year, Really didnt kick it into gear till the last 5 weeks of the season. Jacobs is playing for a contract right now and hes going to get one, just probably not from the Raiders.

  22. Did you all see in the 2019 playoffs when the Packers earned the game ending 1st down and Pete Carroll threw a tantrum like a toddler who wanted candy at the checkout line? That was funny.

  23. Geno is not the answer & Seattle fans that believed he was special forgot about his earlier years in NY – he is average at best & has the ability to win an occasional game against top teams but never can seem to get a winning streak put together when it’s needed most.

  24. You ended your story with,…the Raiders are going nowhere this season… Ok, maybe. We’ll see about that dude. But I did screen shot your post here, let’s see how it ages.

  25. Both these teams are sub .500 non playoff teams but I can see both of them doing damage to playoff hopeful teams down the stretch. Pete is competing and building with an inferior roster and made a spectacular deal unloading Russell Wilson to speed up the process. The Raiders are completely underperforming this year but do have a lot of talent on offense that could explode a couple times down the stretch, hurt their draft position, and beat a couple teams that really cant afford a loss to the Raiders. Im looking right at you Chargers. The futures brighter in Seattle but Vegas will expose a couple of pretenders by seasons end.

  26. Nice to see Jacobs run hard and play tough when he’s playing for a new contract. Some team will be dumb enough to overpay for this marshmallow and he’ll be lucky to play 8 games next season. He’s soft and fragile.

  27. When you lose to a perennial bottom feeder like the Raiders it is time for some real self reflection. Fix the run D. Props to the Raiders fans for turning out though. Most visiting fans I’ve ever seen at a Hawks game in 30 years.

  28. The Raiders didn’t pick up Jacobs’ 5th year option because it was $8 mil guaranteed, and that didn’t look like the right call at the time. Franchise tag is expected to be less than $10 mil so if they want him bad enough he’s not going anywhere next year.

  29. Who would have thought the best part of the Raiders season would be Jacob’s. Get that new money! Mayock ruined this team and Carr is not the guy.

    Soft and fragile? You forgot to call him the current NFL rushing leader. He has also played in all 11 games this season. This is his fourth season and hasn’t had a season with only “8” games yet.

    Justin Fields > Derek Carr

    My town’s HS QB > Zach Wilson

  32. The NFL has a lot of controversial calls including this one in the Raiders favor. That’s the way the cookie crumbles. Seahawks were affected by the lose. The Raiders get their 4th win into week 13 so this win is completely meaningless, sorry Raider’s fan you team still sucks really bad.

  33. Costly win for Raiders getting that 4th win, will hurt come April.

    Seattle is playing with house money and currently has the fourth pick in the draft courtesy of the Broncos, and really it’s the third pick because Chicago hasn’t had their bye yet and will eventually fall behind all the 3 win teams with that brutal SOS. Bears will lose all draft slotting tie breakers so the Panthers and Raiders wins were huge for Chicago.

    Anyone hating on Seattle after this game has no clue how well they are positioned.

    The only loser from this game is some how still the Broncos. So Raiders fans can rejoice about that but not much else as replacing Derek Carr just got a lot tougher.

    Rams – Broncos game is going to be HUGE for Detroit and Seattle fighting for too 3 picks.

    Wait, what are you implying? Playoffs?

    Lol, screen shot is right.

  35. Well, i dont know what Joshy been eating this year, but sign me up!

    That guy is gonna get paid, and if i were him i would get OUT of LV.

    Also, the ‘hawks are not out of the playoffs..do people even look at schedules and standings? They have a good chance to make a wild card..4 out of last 6 games are at home and they play the rams twice in that span (and Rams have a home field advantage like ive got a 6pk), and the rams look DOA, they also play Carolina at home. Now, they do also play the Chiefs at arrowhead and also the Jets and Niners, but lets not say the hawks are out in the very clogged nfc.

  36. Josh Jacobs is great. The Raiders suck. Hopefully he gets to a contender while still in his prime.

    ______________

    Current NFL rushing leader on a garbage four win team in week 13. Welcome back to reality. You need to stop investing your life on obsessing over opposing opinions. GO outside and breathe some fresh air. Stop taking everything so personal, the Raiders are not a good football team dude.
