Darren McFadden rumbled for 123 yards and two touchdowns on 16 carries and added 86 more yards and another touchdown on three catches as the Raiders fell 38-31 to the Jaguars in Week 14.
Amid "committee" concern in the Raiders’ backfield, McFadden controlled the workload by a touches ratio of 19:5 over Michael Bush. Oakland’s coaching staff hasn’t been inclined to use a two-back system all year, so it’s not surprising that McFadden has resurfaced as the clear-cut lead back. A fourth-quarter 37-yard touchdown run was vintage 2010 McFadden, as he busted about six tackles and stiff-armed Jaguars DB Don Carey en route to the end zone. Expect a monster finish from a white-hot running back against the Broncos and Colts in Weeks 15-16.
