Thread: A look at the Oakland Raiders' list of 2019 opponents

    A look at the Oakland Raiders' list of 2019 opponents

    The Oakland Raiders concluded the 2018 campaign yesterday, but we can already look ahead to 2019 and see who the team will play next season. The opponents for all 2019 regular-season games have been determined and a complete list of each team’s home and away matchups was issued today by the NFL.

    The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

    Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows:​

    Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
    The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games)
    The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games)
    Two intraconference games based on the prior year’s standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.
    ​Beginning in 2010, a change was made to how​​​​ teams are paired in the schedule rotation with the AFC and NFC West divisions.
    The official 2019 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.
    NFL Kickoff 2019 Weekend will begin on Thursday night, September 5, and the regular season will conclude on Sunday, December 29.​
    The season will conclude with Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Sunday, February 2, 2020.​​
    Here are the teams the Silver and Black will play in 2019:

    Not an easy schedule all we need to know now is when and where the home games will be played.

    It's hard to tell which teams will be good and bad next year.

    6 and 10 would be my expectation.

    Only a tough schedule because the Raiders are a 4-12 team who play like a 1-15 team. Let's hope for better next season.

    Gruden would be a huge failure if he only got 2 more wins out of all those draft picks and cap space. The new players will have to adjust to the system, but they better be rolling by the middle of the season. 8-8 at minimum and playoffs in 2020.

    There’s so much unknown to even speculate what our record will be.
    We don’t even know our location.

    We could blow our load and trade for AB and pay big $ for Bell in “win now moves” , then luck out and see one of the big 3 fall to us in the draft, and hit on other picks.
    Then what would our record be? 9-11 wins? Playoff push?

    or

    We could play it safe in free agency, not overspending on the few big name free agents left. Waiting for the big free agent splash going into Vegas.
    Then in the draft, big 3 are gone, nothing good on the trade down market, we end up reaching at #4, and miss on other picks.
    What would our record be then? 5 or 6 wins? (Carr year #2 under same system has to count for something)

    I just don’t see what splash will happen in this FA class. Other teams have big cap room too. Why would the top dogs go to the Raiders in 2019?
    Can’t count on rookies to make a big big difference year #1.
    If we end up an unlucky 7-9, losing a few 50/50 games on bad calls or fluke plays, BUT we see big improvement all over the field going into Vegas, no more blowout loses, I’d be pumped.

    It's no secret Mark Davis wants a competitive team playing in Vegas. I think the Raiders also want some star players to sell tickets and jerseys. I would be surprised if they didn't go after some high end free agents. They need names on those jerseys sold at the Vegas airport.
