On the Raiders podcast with Tony R:

#1 Tony how running back Josh Jacobs came back last week against the Los Angeles Chargers. Jacobs carried for 40 yards averaging 3.1 yards how important was his return knowing his potential.

#2 Tony, running back Peyton Barber is has minor turf toe, will an injury like this keep Barber out for some time. Tests showed no fracture, Barber is still going through tests to see how to proceed.

#3 The Chargers proved to be a formable opponent last Sunday when they opened the first half with a 21-0 lead. Seeing the Raiders defense let down was this just one bad game for the defense or is this a concern for head coach Jon Gruden.

#4 Raiders quarterback Derek Carr couldn’t get much offense he and the Raiders couldn’t get on the scoreboard for the first, second and third quarters but scored 14 in the third quarter. How concerned will Carr have to be trying to score on the Chicago Bears this Sunday?

#5 Tony the Bears got a ten point 24-14 win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday now their at 2-2 .500 and Bears quarterback Justin Fields 11-17 for 209 he threw for no touchdowns and one interception but got help from his running backs and receivers.
