Silver Minings: Yannick Ngakoue named biggest X-Factor for Raiders

If the Raiders are going to reach the playoffs in 2021, they’ll need a lot more from their defense next year. We know what we’re going to get from their offense, but their defense will need to step up if they’re going to take the next step.

Bleacher Report ranked the biggest “X-Factor” on every NFL team, and not surprisingly they said it comes on defense for the Raiders. According to them, it’ll be one of their newest additions, Yannick Ngakoue.

The Las Vegas Raiders recorded just 15 takeaways and 21 sacks last season, ranking in the bottom five in the NFL in both categories.
