Can Oakland Raiders Make Playoffs?

Oakland Raiders

Coming into the season, the Oakland Raiders were one of the teams that everyone thought would make the playoffs. However, the team has had numerous issues this year. Not only have they struggled on offense, but injuries at critical positions have caused issues as well.

Derek Carr is one of the best quarterbacks in the league today. However, the Raiders have a lot of young talent in other spots on the roster. In the coming years, the Raiders need a plan to sign all of their talented players. Bowman is one of the leading defensive players in the league. At the end of this year, his current contract will expire. The team is currently working on a plan to get him signed and to stay under the salary cap as well.

Defense

For many fans, the Oakland Raiders are a fun team to watch because they have a dynamic offense. Not only do they have a potent passing game, but they also have a strong running attack led by Marshawn Lynch. In the weeks ahead, the Raiders must continue to score a lot of points in order to win games and stay in the playoff hunt.

However, the defense is the real strength of the team. The Raiders have one of the best defensive players in the entire NFL in Khalil Mack. Ever since he was drafted, he has been a great player for this franchise.

Playoffs

Making the playoffs is the goal of every NFL team heading into a new season. There are many people who believe that the Raiders have a chance to make the playoffs. However, the upcoming game against the Chiefs is critical. If the Raiders do not win the game, their chances of making the playoffs drop rapidly.

The Chiefs are a tough team because they have talent in numerous spots on the roster. At the beginning of the year, the Chiefs looked like one of the best teams in the league. However, over the past few weeks, the Chiefs have struggled to move the ball. Their best defensive player is Eric Berry. He was hurt the first week of the season against the Patriots. The Chiefs are definitely missing his leadership on the sidelines.

If the Raiders can win this week and become more consistent, they have a chance of making the playoffs this year.
