The happenings surrounding the Las Vegas Raiders just keep piling up.

For now, running back Josh Jacobs is being outspoken about the issues the team has been dealing with.

“It’s undisciplined football, and this league is too competitive,” Jacobs told’s Paul Gutierrez. “It’s too competitive and it’s too many guys that’s good out there to not do the little things right every play. Until we figure that out, this is going to be what it is. It’s frustrating, man. And I mean, I feel like every day I go in there and work my *** off. So, eventually something’s got to give.”

On Sunday, in the 24-17 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, Raiders defensive lineman Jerry Tillery took a cheap shot at Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert. A move they felt was personal.

This is on top of Chandler Jones being released after he was arrested by Vegas police for allegedly violating a domestic protection order. He also had been active on social media, including X (formerly known as Twitter) making some cryptic comments about the death of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez.

The Raiders hope to capitalize off their opening drives. They tend to struggle soon after that.

The team remains frustrated which certainly means the fans feel the same way.
