Best of Murray 2014

The best photos of RB Latavius Murray from the 2014 season.

Originally drafted in the sixth round (184th overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft, Latavius Murray missed the entirety of his rookie year after suffering a foot injury during training camp.

He entered 2014 healthy, and after waiting his turn, earned the bulk of the carries the final quarter of the season.

Murray finished the season with new career highs in carries and yards, rushing the ball 82 times for 424 yards and two touchdowns.

After having limited carries through the beginning of the 2014 campaign, Murray exploded onto the national stage during the Raiders Thursday Night Football contest against the Kansas City Chiefs.

On just four carries in the first half, the second-year RB rushed for 112 yards (28.0 avg.) and two touchdowns, before leaving the game due to injury.

Murray found the end zone for the first time in his NFL career when he ran around the left edge for an 11-yard score in the first quarter and then added another 90-yard run for a touchdown in the second.With this performance, he became the first Raider to eclipse the 100-yard mark on the ground since FB Marcel Reece ran for 112 yards against the New York Jets on December 8, 2013.

He also became the first player in NFL history to gain at least 110 rushing yards on five or fewer carries.

His 90-yard scamper into the end zone was the longest offensive scoring play in the NFL this season and the fourth rushing touchdown of 90-plus yards in Raiders history.

Murray also proved valuable in the return game, returning 19 kickoffs for a total of 427 yards, with a long of 38 yards.
