Look at Mack’s play recognition in the slow-mo of this one. He immediately makes a move to the middle of the field, helping make the stop at the line of scrimmage.
Another clip showcasing Mack’s play recognition and run-stopping ability. He sees where the play is going, gets to that spot right away and throws Fred Jackson to the ground.
Another incredibly impressive play here that doesn’t count in the box score. Mack stands his ground against a double team, all while containing the edge, giving his teammates enough time and also the opportunity to make a play, since he is occupying two blockers.
And last but not least, who could forget this one? The Raiders first victory in over one calendar year, and Mack is elated with joy. It’s obviously a bone-headed play…after all, he is just a rookie. Scary.
