Latavius Murray is quietly 6th in the NFL and 1st in the AFC in rushing yards. The reason why it’s been done quietly is Latavius has only reached 100 yards twice all season, and he’s got just three rushing TD’s. What makes Murray’s production surprising is he doesn’t have the workload of a workhorse back and he rarely carries the ball more than 20 times per game. But he definitely should.

The Raiders are favorites in this one, so if the Raiders can take care of business and stay out in front, it should be a game where Latavius gets 20 carries, and hopefully that streak Vic pointed out can continue.
