Marshawn Lynch bullied his way to 101 yards and the Raiders moved into a three-way tie for first place in the AFC West, taking down the New York Giants 24-17 on Sunday afternoon at the Coliseum.

Lynch's 101-yard outing not only represented his most productive game in silver and black but also his first 100-yard rushing day since October of 2015. After Derek Carr mustered seven yards in the opening quarter, the Raiders QB went for 280 over the final three.

The Raiders caried a 10-7 lead into the half, thanks in large part to a pair of strip sacks from Bruce Irvin and Khalil Mack. Check out Mack's vicious hit on Geno Smith in the video below:

On the Raiders third offensive play, Lynch burst through the guest's defense, barreling his way to a 51-yard touchdown run, his longest gain as a Raider:

Beast Mode now has four touchdowns in the past four games after finding the end zone just twice the Raiders opening seven contests.
