5 things to avoid so the Las Vegas Raiders make the playoffs
Bad Offensive Line Play
The Raiders offensive line is by no means horrible, but it has downgraded since last season, a season where the line did not play up to par, especially in terms of run blocking. With a ton of new faces, the key will be gelling during the summer months, as they prepare for a pretty tough early-season slate.
The offensive line still has a solid foundation with Kolton Miller and the return of Richie Incognito, but outside of that, there are a lot of question marks. The Raiders traded arguably the best center in the league, traded Gabe Jackson, who was by no means a bad player and drafted a big question mark in Alex Leatherwood to play right tackle.
I believe this offensive line will play fine, but it is going to have to perform better than fine to get the Raiders to where they need to go. This team will be built off of running the football, and if Josh Jacobs gets hit before reaching the line of scrimmage as often as he did last season, the offense could struggle.
