Jon Gruden’s resignation as Raiders head coach could have thrown the team into disarray.

Instead, Las Vegas went to Denver and notched a decisive victory over the Broncos.

According to running back Josh Jacobs, Raiders interim head coach Rich Bisaccia brought a significantly different demeanor to the position than his predecessor.

“Man, the sideline … it was like [there was no] anxiety,” Jacobs said, via Adam Hill of the Las Vegas Review-Journal. “It was weird. It was like everybody was calm. You didn’t have somebody cussing at you, or going crazy at the refs. None of that.”

Jacobs added that if a mistake or bad play occurred, everyone was able to move on seamlessly.

“[I]t was like, ‘OK, not going to harp on it, next play.’ The guys all kind of motivated each other,” Jacobs said. “You saw a lot of defensive guys standing up and offensive guys jumping off the bench when the defense made plays. I was like, that’s the right type of energy that we needed. I loved it.”

Jacobs had his most productive day of the season in Sunday’s victory, recording 82 yards from scrimmage with a rushing touchdown.

The Raiders will try to keep the good vibes going against the Eagles at home in Week Seven.
