5 questions for the Las Vegas Raiders offense entering 2020
Will the offensive line hold up?
The efficiency of the passing game, the production in the backfield, so much rides on the stability of the offensive line upfront. It’s the reason why Las Vegas is investing heavily in the likes of Rodney Hudson, Richie Incognito, Trent Brown, and Kolton Miller. When the line is healthy, they are arguably the best in football.
Much like keeping Josh Jacobs fresh throughout the season, the same goal goes for the offensive line. Injuries are a part of the game, but the elite teams weather that storm and persevere. For Las Vegas’ offense to be clicking on all cylinders, the line up front has to do their best in being able to suit up every Sunday.
Rodney Hudson allowed just three pressures in 509 pass-blocking snaps in 2019 and Richie Incognito allowed only nine pressures in 414 snaps (per Pro Football Focus). PFF ranked the Raiders offensive line in the middle of the pack, but in 2020 the question lies whether when healthy, they can prove to be the atop the pack in all of football.
