OAKLAND -- If the Oakland Raiders are going to win Monday night’s game they must run the ball effectively.
So far, so good for Oakland.
Michael Bush scored from the 4-yard line on third and goal. The Raiders are running with an authority we have not seen in some time.
We’ve known Oakland has a talented running game, but they are really slicing up San Diego. Oakland just went 84 yard on 10 plays and it wasn’t even difficult. Oakland has run 12 running plays and five pass plays.
San Diego had run just three plays to Oakland’s first 17.
Starter Darren McFadden is running with a great burst. Bush started the game with a 17-yard run in a two-tailback set with McFadden.
