3. Offensive line ranks among NFL’s best
Every great team starts at its offensive line, the Raiders will be no different in 2020. They invested a lot into said group over the years and it paid off last season. Carr took only 29 sacks and the Raiders had a running back rush for over1,000 yards.
PFF ranked the Raiders offensive line at 15th last season. If they can move into a Top 10 spot, they can easily improve the offense from last season, resulting in a few more wins.
On paper, they should be good, on the field is a different story.
Expect this team to run the ball well, which will improve their line tremendously. Las Vegas will be a dual-threat team, in return helping their line improve. Looking at the offensive weapons added this offseason, it’s up to the line to keep everything together.
These five starters may be the difference between the Raiders contending for the division or them missing the playoffs entirely.
