The preseason performance of the offensive line was concerning to say the least, but writing them off based on that alone would be slightly premature.
Either way, this group will represent one of the Raiders' biggest overall question marks not only for this week but likely throughout the entire 2013 season.
Heading into Friday, there is still uncertainty as to who the starting unit will consist of. If left tackle Menelik Watson cannot go after tweaking his knee in practice this week, Khalif Barnes would slide to the left side, and the newly signed Tony Pashos would start at right tackle.
For the Raiders to have success on offense, the line will need to create lanes in the running game, as well as at least slow down the opposing pass rush.
Should there continue to be difficulties in both regards, much like there was throughout the preseason, the Colts will take control of this game early on.
