Khalil Mack Almost Had as Many Sacks as Raiders During 2018 NFL Season

The Raiders' defense was so bad this season that Bears edge rusher Khalil Mack came with half a sack of having the same number as his former unit this season.

Mack finished with 12.5 sacks this season, while the entire Raiders defense had 13.

You read that right. 13.

13 whole sacks. In 16 games.

Mack got his 12.5 in 14 games.

To make matters worse for the Raiders, even if you add Mack's 12.5 to their 13 sacks, they still would have had the fewest in the NFL. The Miami Dolphins finished with the second-fewest sacks in the league, tallying just 32 sacks.

To make matters EVEN WORSE for the Raiders, the Bears are the No. 3 seed in the NFC playoffs, so the 2019 first-round draft pick they sent to Oakland in the trade likely will fall in the mid to late 20s. Not exactly where Jon Gruden and Co. wanted that to be.
