#5 The Raiders will struggle
While Raider Nation might be dead set on an easy road to the playoffs, the reality of the situation is much worse. The Raiders will have to play the Browns, the Cowboys, the Broncos, and the Colts before taking on the Kansas City Chiefs in week 5. Now, this doesn't mean that the team can't make the playoffs, but two division rivals will be a lot to handle in two weeks. Furthermore, the Cowboys and the Browns will both be looking to make title runs of their own, making for a very crucial first couple of weeks.
In the end, the Raiders don't exactly thrive under pressure, which is why they are going to be subject to some growing pains. The team has a very difficult start to the season to get through, making the few wins they may accumulate all the more crucial. Whether it comes against the Cowboys, the Browns, the Colts, the Broncos or the Chiefs remain to be seen, but it will be these victories that will give them a shot at making the wild card spot in 2021.
