“Yeah, man, it’s a bull—, true,” he told the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “It’s a bull—. And it’s up to us, right? See, I’m tired of telling them I have to help them, and it’s just frustrating.”

Jacobs was asked if the Steelers’ game plan is to stop the running game. Las Vegas was 58 yards on the ground. Jacobs, Derek Carr, and Brandon Bolden each rushed to try. His 11-yard run for Jacobs was the longest in a Raiders game.

“I still had a chance to play,” Jacobs said. “When we’re close and it feels like we’re going to get something big, we feel like we’re moving away from it.

Jacobs added: “I’m tired of dealing with this. There are no results. Frankly, I don’t know what else to do.”
