During Friday night's preseason game against the St. Louis Rams, the Oakland Raiders offensive line created a huge hole in the middle of the field for Richardson to run through near the goal line. However, he decided to run straight into a pile and got tackled near the line of scrimmage.
When there is that much room in the middle of the field, a running back has to use his vision and hit the hole. If Richardson had done so, he likely would have scored.
Richardson finished the game with 18 yards on five carries.
