While the Raiders finished 8-8 in 2020, their offense largely wasn’t the issue.
The club finished No. 8 in total yards and No. 10 in points scored in its first season in Southern Nevada. The Raiders’ 434 points were their most scored since reaching 450 in 2002 — the year they lost the Super Bowl to Jon Gruden’s Buccaneers.
But if there’s one area where the Raiders could improve, it’s their red-zone offense. They finished 23rd in the category last year, scoring touchdowns on 54.2 percent of their opportunities inside the 20. But even though they had running back Josh Jacobs, Las Vegas was one of the worst teams in goal-to-go situations. The Raiders finished No. 30 with just 62.2 percent of those possessions ending in TDs. Only Carolina (58.6 percent) and Dallas (62.1 percent) were worse.
