I'm Scott -- Raiders insider for CSN California this is your Raiders three and out. Topic number one deals with the -- ailing and always injured raiders' offensive line which didn't get a lot better during the course of the bye week. Because the same unit that gave up ten sacks. And fourteen quarterback hits to the Kansas City Chiefs that was the exact same five guys lining up with the first team line during Monday's practice. And that's a pretty bad sign because that didn't include Stefan was new ski or even second string center Andre Jerod didn't include right tackle Tony Pashos instead it included -- Third straight -- a third string right guard. And -- young player playing right tackle that doesn't have a lot of experience now. Going up against a very physical always tough Pittsburgh Steelers. Run defense our defense in general is going to be a big problem but is no time to hit the panic button quite yet because it's just a Monday now we still -- Wednesday and Thursday to go but if we hit Thursday. And these guys aren't back on the field it could spell major trouble. For the Raiders offense just like it did against the Chiefs. It's hard to say that at Oakland Raiders running game that ranks number nine in the NFL and averages four point seven yards per carry is really. A major cause for concern but Dennis Allen said that he took a close look at that written. At that running game sorry during the bye week try to figure out how they could get more consistent because right now while the numbers overall are pretty high. Terrelle Pryor is the team's leading rusher that's not good when you had Darren McFadden Rashad Jennings and Marcel Reece. Already the ball nearly double the amount of time that prior season. And also because Darren McFadden while he is averaging. I'd just about four yards per carry a lot of those yards came in big chunks against the Jacksonville Jaguars and since then he's out of it hurt there's been a lot of runs of one yard two yards sometimes negative one or two yards and those types of runs do not set up manageable third downs because you're not getting. Three four sometimes five yards for those first and second on runs you put yourself in third and long positions and that's how drives. Get killed that's how you so I don't gain those kind of steady point that you need to keep up with the the likes of the Kansas City Chiefs. Or even the Pittsburgh Steelers that they're going to face on Sunday. And the key because again that Raiders have jumped out to big leads or even just leads in general over the last three games. They have been able to hold -- well because they cannot run consistently if those types of things that have to change if the Raiders hope to start. A winning streak that can get them back in the playoff hunt. It's hard to say that in Oakland Raiders running game ranked number nine in the NFL and one that averages four point seven yards per carry is a real cause for concern the head coach Dennis Allen. Talked on Monday extensively about. Really putting their running game under the microscope the trying to figure out how to get more consistent yardage out of that running game. Because while this has been a big play part of their offense especially in gains of more than twenty yards it hasn't had that steady type of. Production I can keep him out of third and long situations and that's what they definitely want to avoid here because in recent weeks. They've been able to establish leave that they have been able to hold very well and. How do you hold the lead you run consistently you keep churning out first downs and you get points no matter what whether it's three or seven. They need to do more of that especially against the Pittsburgh Steelers defense that is so physical and so tough against the run they've got to get those. Yards in smaller increments Wear them down and then break the big ones later on if they wanna be is very tough AFC opponent.
