Raiders Latavius Murray became the 1st player to ever rush for 110 yards on less than 5 carries

murrayJust how big of a boost was Latavius Murray the former Central Florida running back?

Murray, a sixth-round pick in 2013, who spent all of his rookie season on injured reserve with a foot injury, finished with 112 yards on four carries. He’s the first Oakland running back to top the 100-yard mark since fullback Marcel Reece went for 123 against the New York Jets on Dec. 8, 2013.

That is not all he did, did you know he is the first running back in the History of the NFL to rush for more than 110 yards on less than 5 carries?

That was the boost the Raiders needed, and boy was it a great feeling to see them get a win.
