Silver Minings: Grading the Raiders at the bye

What grade would you give them?

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We’ve reached the bye week, and the Raiders are currently sitting at 3-2. They’re coming off their best win in a long time as Las Vegas looks to continue to build momentum towards reaching the playoffs.

Though we’re only five weeks into the season, what grade would you give Las Vegas so far?

Offense

The offense has performed a lot better than expected. They’re averaging 399.4 yards per game, the seventh best in the NFL. Derek Carr has been fantastic. He’s completing 73% of his passes for just under 1,500 yards with 11 touchdowns and only one interception.

On the rushing side of things, Josh Jacobs has 377 yards and five touchdowns on the ground. Darren Waller leads all pass-catchers with 34 catches, 295 yards and had two touchdowns.
