Oakland Raiders News
For several years this century, the Oakland Raiders struggled to win games and a be a factor in the AFC West. Last year, however, was a breakthrough season for the team. Oakland tied for the division championship with the Kansas City Chiefs, finishing with a record of 12-4. However, an injury to quarterback Derek Carr contributed to some late-season struggles, including a 27-14 loss to the Houston Texans in the AFC Wildcard round of the playoffs.
The Raiders’ trip to the postseason was its first appearance since 2002 when they lost in the Super Bowl to Tampa Bay. With a healthy Carr back under center, the team hopes for its first back-to-back winning seasons since it had three straight winning records from 2000 to 2002.
This season the Oakland Raiders 2017 schedule includes home games versus the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, New England Patriots, New York Jets, Dallas Cowboys, New York Giants and Baltimore Ravens. On the road they’ll play the Denver Broncos, Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, Buffalo Bills, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins and Tennessee Titans.
