Baltimore comes into this season off another playoff appearance but fell to the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round. QB Lamar Jackson and company will be looking to improve a passing attack that ranked last in the NFL in 2020. They’ll need to get marginally better there, especially now that RB1 JK Dobbins is out for the season with a knee injury.
The Raiders are still searching for their first playoff appearance under coach Jon Gruden, who is heading into his 4th season at the helm. Derek Carr will lead the offense with explosive weapons like tight end Darren Waller, running back Josh Jacobs and wideout Henry Ruggs. That splashy unit could be a ton of fun to watch this season if they put it all together.
