ESPN’s ‘power panel’ recently ranked all 32 teams in the NFL heading into the 2020 season, and the Las Vegas Raiders were shown no love.

The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a seven-win 2019 campaign, one that saw them make a three-game improvement in the win column. However, heading into 2020, there seems to be some unrest as to where the media feels they will end up, with some having them playoff bound, and others having them towards the bottom of the league.

Sure, there are a ton of question marks when it comes to this roster, including whether or not the revamped defense can actually get stops this season. The offense has the weapons to put up points against any defense in the league, but there are even some question marks on that side of the ball.

With the fan base still split on seventh-year starter Derek Carr at quarterback, the Raiders will have to hope he can take advantage of all these new weapons and lead this team to the playoffs for only the second time in his career. The last time he did that, Carr could not play in the game, so the hope is that he can stay healthy this time around.

Looking ahead, with the NFL season only a few weeks away, ESPN has recently ranked each team in their power rankings, and the Raiders were shown very little love.
