Cincinnati Bengals at Oakland Raiders: 3 players to watch in Week 11
By Nick Ellis
Josh Jacobs is the front-runner for Offensive Rookie of the Year, and he should be able to continue that push against the Bengals. The Raiders offensive line is playing as well as ever, Jacobs is quickly becoming one of the best backs in the NFL, and the Bengals have the worst rushing defense in the NFL.
The Bengals allow a record high 173 rushing yards per game. For context on how bad that is, the Raiders allow 98.4 rushing yards per game. The Raiders gameplan lately has been to run the ball all game long, then let Derek Carr win it in the end.
If the Raiders run the ball all game Sunday, Carr should not need to have a game-winning drive. Expect Jacobs to have one of his biggest games of the season, rushing for well over 100 yards and a pair of touchdowns.
