The Las Vegas Raiders have the talent on both sides of the ball to be special in 2022, but could a 12-win season really be in the cards?
It has been a crazy offseason for the Las Vegas Raiders, as they brought in a new general manager, head coach, and a bevy of elite players. From Josh McDaniels taking the helm as head coach to the smooth moves by new general manager David Ziegler, the talent is much better than it was a year ago when you look around this franchise.
Now, the team has to go out and put the work in on the field, and next month, training camp will start all over the NFL. Las Vegas plays in the Hall of Fame Game, so they will be on display early on, but looking ahead to the regular season, what can we really expect from them.
Last year, the franchise navigate a tough season on and off the field, but banded together, winning their last four games of the regular season, and making the playoffs as a Wild Card. In 2022, the bar has been set higher, and one writer feels they could be two wins better than they were a year ago.
Raiders a 12-win team in 2022
Marcus Mosher is a very talented writer, and recently, he put together his views on the outcome of every Raiders regular-season game this season for YahooSports.com. In the piece, Mosher has the Raiders going 12-5, which would likely land them not only a Wild Card berth but possibly an AFC West title.
Also in his prediction, Mosher likes the Raiders to go on another four-win run at the end of the regular season, this time beating division rival Kansas City in the season finale, much like they did against Los Angeles last year. That game could decide the AFC West and would be must-watch television for sure.
The Cardinals head to Allegiant Stadium in week two of the 2022 season after a somewhat tumultuous offseason. Did they do enough to repeat their success?
The goal for this year’s team is to continue to move in the right direction and possibly become a perennial playoff contender. Many outlets feel they could be the worst team in the AFC West this season, but this is one writer who got it right, as the Silver and Black could be a special team this upcoming season, and 12 wins, is a legitimapossibilityity.
