The Raiders offense had been struggling over the last two games, but Jacoby Ford is doing his best to keep them in this game with the Miami Dolphins. Ford ran back the opening kick off for a touchdown, and has now added a 44 yard touchdown reception to give the Raiders a 14-10 lead.
Three weeks ago Ford had his coming out party in this his rookie season. After the Raiders were stymied for much of the first half, Ford opened the second half with a kickoff return for a touchdown. He then followed that with six monstrous receptions that helped the Raiders tie the Chiefs in regulation and eventually beat them in overtime.
Today, Ford is looking to be just as much of a one-man show. It’s not up yet but at some point NFL.com’s Raiders-Dolphins gametracker should have a highlight video of Ford’s touchdown.
