Oakland Raiders RB Rashard Jennings rushed for a career-high 150 yards on 22 carries and Jennings has 340 yards on 57 carries, averaging 6.0 yards per carry in his last three games. He is second to Terrelle Pryor on the team in rushing with 480 yards. Fellow RB Darren McFadden, who suffered a hamstring injury in the Philadelphia game which gave Jennings the opportunity to be the lead back, has 352 yards in seven games. When McFadden returns, he'll most likely take a backseat to Jennings.
