The Oakland Raiders in the 2015 regular season concluded play with a recorded of 7-9 and missed the playoffs once again. They were sitting in third place in the AFC West division but showed improvement on the offensive side of the football. Things seem be in place for Oakland to make a run at a playoff berth in 2016 as the team is being built properly by management and has a quality head coach in Jack Del Rio.

The Raiders were the 16th ranked passing attack in the NFL in 2015 as the team threw for 243 yards per game. The draft pick of Derek Carr at quarterback appears to be working out. He showed great improvement in year two. In 2015 Carr completed 61.1% of his passes for 3987 yards with 32 touchdowns and 13 picks. He has shown durability in his young career starting in all 32 games of his career. Some notable 2015 performances were the four touchdown passes he threw at home to the New York Jets and on the road at the Pittsburgh Steelers. He had 11 multiple touchdown pass performances. Oakland needs to build a run game to help hold leads to control clock. Latavius Murray had 266 rushing attempts for 1066 yards with 4 yards per carry average. Murray will need to kick up his average a bit more as he is nearing his prime at 26 years old. Oakland did well in the 2015 draft. Their top pick was wide receiver Amari Cooper out of Alabama. Cooper in his rookie campaign had 72 receptions for 1070 yards with six touchdowns. He averaged nearly 15 yards per pass catch. Michael Crabtree is starting opposite Cooper and in 2015 the wide out had 85 receptions for 922 yards with nine touchdowns. Crabtree matched a career high in receptions a season ago and seems to be a good fit alongside Cooper. Defensively is where Oakland will need to improve the most. They are young and were the 22nd ranked unit a season ago.
