The Las Vegas Raiders are tired of the disrespect. Everyone, and their mom, have been predicting them to finish last in the division, and nearly everyone is predicting them to lose to the Chargers on Sunday.

Unless you are Stephen A. Smith, who predicted the Chargers to score more points but the Raiders to win.

The Chargers do have a very good team, and that cannot be understated. However, that doesn’t mean that the Raiders don’t have a chance.

Here are three Raiders players you should watch to have a big game on the offensive side of the ball.

Mack Hollins

We all know guys like Davante Adams and Hunter Renfrow will likely have big games. I mean, that is why they get paid the big bucks. However, Mack Hollins, the third wide receiver, and new team captain could easily do some damage.

With J.C. Jackson, who many feel is the best cornerback in the game, out for Sunday’s game, the Chargers’ second and third-best cornerbacks on the roster will be focused on Adams and Renfrow.

Michael Davis is going to be tasked with trying to keep Hollins under wraps. Hollins is a guy who can go up and get it, but he is also a guy that can beat you with the short routes in the flats. Watch for him to have a big game on Sunday.

John Simpson and Lester Cotton Sr.

The offensive line has been the worst part of the team all summer, training camp, and preseason. A big part of it, though, was Alex Leatherwood, and now he is no longer there. The offensive line could look better than we think against the Chargers, and John Simpson is a big reason.

Kolton Miller and Jermaine Eluemunor will have their hands full with Khalil Mack and Joey Bosa all day. As for the guards and center, like Simpson at left guard, they won’t as much.

If there was a weakness on the Chargers’ defense, it would be the pass rush by the defensive tackle spot. Sebastian Joseph-Day, Jerry Tillery, and Austin Johnson don’t pose much of a threat, and that is just the truth.

The three of them combined for 11 sacks last season, which isn’t really that good. These two at the inner offensive line spots should be good on Sunday and can make the offensive line look better than what they really are.

Football is finally back, and what better way to kick off the season than a division rival game? This should be fun to watch.
