It's still early in the 2022 NFL season, but already it may be time for some teams to hit the panic button.

While it’s important not to overreact to every development during the first fortnight of a campaign, there are some troubling ones among the league's projected contenders. Many have suffered at least one disheartening defeat and displayed glaring issues that must be corrected to contend for a championship.

With that in mind, let’s look at the squads who have limped out of the gate and have reason to worry about their playoff aspirations.

Las Vegas Raiders (0-2)

2022 Projected Win Total: 8.5

The Las Vegas Raiders were one of the league’s surprise playoff teams last year, but they are now facing an uphill battle to make it back into the field. They are 0-2 start after losing close games against the Los Angeles Chargers and Arizona Cardinals.

There is an easy argument to be made that Las Vegas should have won both matchups.

Derek Carr threw a trio of interceptions in the opener, and in Week 2 the Raiders blew a 20-point halftime lead before Hunter Renfrow's overtime fumble was returned for a game-ending touchdown.

It's been a sloppy start for head coach Josh McDaniels, who is getting his second shot to head up an AFC West club following a disappointing tenure with the Denver Broncos in 2009 and '10.

Given McDaniels started his first run as a head coach with six straight wins before getting canned with an 11-17 record, this 0-2 start is rather troubling.

Given this team has all the tools required to be one of the NFL’s top attacks, ranking a mere No. 23 in total offense after two weeks is a major letdown. If the Raiders don’t turn things around in Week 3 against the Tennessee Titans, their season could be over before it even gets off the ground.
