The Las Vegas Raiders are off to a hot 3-1 start, but they've done so in spite of some serious struggles on the offensive line. Remember, Las Vegas spent the offseason reworking their o-line, but they've seemingly shown a worse product on the field in 2021.

Entering Week 5, the Raiders gave up the fifth-most sacks (12) across the league and rank with the sixth-lowest rushing yards per game (80.5). Injuries have been an unfortunate factor, but recent comments from head coach Jon Gruden will make Raiders fans scratch their heads.

According to Gruden, he's generally happy with the offensive line. In fact, he doesn't even see a need to make changes.

"We're considering all options, but we like our linemen. We really do. We did have some pretty good outings. We are not going to hit the panic button. We've got to keep coaching. We've got to keep developing these guys."

It sounds like Gruden and his staff are prepared to roll out the same o-line lineup for the foreseeable future, and simply hope the play improves.

It's not an easy test moving forward. The Raiders prepare for a Week 5 contest against the scary Chicago Bears pass-rush headlined by former Raider Khalil Mack. Las Vegas enters this Week 5 contest as 5.5-point favorites on FanDuel Sportsbook.
