The Las Vegas Raiders came out of their Bye Week with a decisive victory Sunday, beating the Houston Texans 38-20.

Running back Josh Jacobs scored two of his three touchdowns in the fourth quarter, on his way to 143 yards rushing on the day. He added 12 receiving yards, too. This is the third straight game Jacobs has rushed for over 100 yards.

The nail-in-the-coffin came when safety Duron Harmon intercepted a pass from Texans’ quarterback Davis Mills, returning it for 73 yards and the score.

Derek Carr ended the day with a quarterback rating of 116.2 with 241 passing yards and one touchdown. Davante Adams ended the day with eight catches on 95 yards.

“We talked a lot about a few things in the Bye Week, and we saw some fruit of our labor here show up today,” coach Josh McDaniels said. “We talked about our red zone, trying to improve offensively and defensively in the red zone and I thought we did some of that today.”

Across The AFC West

The Chargers move to 4-3 on the season after losing at home to the Seattle Seahawks, 37-23. The Denver Broncos, without quarterback Russell Wilson Sunday, were only able to put up 9 points in a loss to the New York Jets. Denver moves to 2-5 on the year. The Kansas City Chiefs spoiled Christian McCaffrey’s debut with San Francisco, blowing out the 49ers 44-23. The Chiefs move to 5-2 on the year.

Who’s Next For The Raiders?

The Black and Silver travel to New Orleans next Sunday to take on the 2-5 Saints.
