The Las Vegas Raiders’ struggles on offense has been a season-long problem.

It was an issue before Josh McDaniels was fired and, for the most part, it’s been the same deal with interim offensive coordinator Bo Hardegree calling the plays.

Other than the 30 point performance against the awful New York Giants in the McDaniels’ fired-party game, the Raider’s offense has been bad under Hardegree as it has scored just two touchdowns and 29 points in two games.

The Raiders, who went two full quarters without getting a first down Sunday at Miami, are averaging 16.8 points a game after averaging 24 points a game through 11 games last season.

As this tweet from the Associated Press shows, Las Vegas’ problems on offense are in both the passing and running games.

That’s difficult to overcome.
