When Darren McFadden went down with an injury several weeks ago, it was largely expected to cripple the Oakland Raiders' offense. Michael Bush, though, has filled in admirably. The backup running back had another strong game for the Raiders, rushing for 130 yards and scoring a touchdown on 30 carries. He added 20 receiving yards on two catches
It was Bush's second straight game with at least 30 carries and also the second game in a row in which he's gone over 150 all-purpose yards. A week ago, he rushed for 157 yards against the San Diego Chargers.
In fact, Bush has now rushed for at least 96 yards in each of the last four games. He now has five touchdowns on the season, as well. Bush's performance was a key reason why the Raiders were able to beat the Minnesota Vikings.
