The Las Vegas Raiders’ offensive line, as a unit, has gotten off to a rocky start to the 2021 NFL season.

However, there is one shining exception — left tackle Kolton Miller. According to Pro Football Focus, Miller has played the second most snaps through Week 4 without allowing a sack. Miler has been on the field for 185 snaps and he did his part to keep Las Vegas quarterback Derek Carr upright on all of them.

While Miler is balling, the same can’t be said for the rest of the Raiders’ new-look offensive line. It is struggling. According to the Associated Press, the Raiders have allowed 12 sacks this season, the fifth most in the NFL this season so far.

While overall numbers don’t look good, the Raiders have to feel good about Miller’s start to the season.
