There were a lot of trends (good and bad) about the Las Vegas Raiders’ offense under Josh McDaniels in 2022.

Here’s another one (and it’s not great): When the game was on the line, the Raiders struggled to get key yardage in the air.

The Raiders lost several close games in 2022 and that this may be a contributing factor. of course, out is former quarterback Derek Carr. So, perhaps McDaniels and the Raiders’ offense will have greater success n this area during the 2023 NFL season.

In other Raiders’ news:

  • Whatever, dude: Antonio Brown never stops.
  • 53-player projection: The Las Vegas Review-Journal takes a stab at projecting the Raiders’ 53-man roster.
  • Top playmakers: ESPN ranks the Raiders with the 11th best group of playmakers in the NFL.
