4. The ugly: The defense
There is no easy way to say this, but the Raiders' defense seems to be absolute garbage this season. In fact, they are the 27th ranked defense in the entire league and have allowed an average of 30 points in their first four games. They also have allowed over 1000 yards in the first quarter of the season and are showing no signs of cutting down on their mistakes.
If nothing else, the Raiders are suffering a lot of injuries on defense as well, which is why some of this is understandable, but their defense is going to be what stops them from making the playoffs. It will also be what forces major changes in the coming games and maybe even puts the team in market to trade for another player.
