Marcus Allen has been a mentor to Josh Jacobs ever since Jacobs entered the NFL as a first-round draft pick in 2019. Fate would have it, then, that Allen was in the Allegiant Stadium suite of Las Vegas Raiders owner Mark Davis on Sunday when Jacobs added his name to the franchise record book for running backs ... alongside Allen.

And it was Allen who corralled Jacobs in the hallway outside of the Raiders' locker room following their 38-20 blowout of the Houston Texans -- a game in which Jacobs rushed for 143 yards and 3 touchdowns -- to tell him, "They should have been running you all along," Jacobs recalled with a laugh.
