Las Vegas QB thinks Josh Jacobs is going to be fresh every play

A Lasting Impact: 2000’s Raiders Defense

Since its inception in 1960, the Raiders have created and maintained a historic legacy. While many notable players who donned the Silver and Black played on the offensive side of the ball, the “Raider” way was a culture more established by the defense.
