Non-nationally televised preseason games in 2014 will again be produced in-house by the Emmy-Award-winning Silver and Black Productions, and will air locally on KTVU FOX Channel 2/KICU Action 36. Silver and Black Productions also produces two popular TV shows, The Silver and Black Show, The Raiders Report as well as online programming exclusive to Raiders.com.
The Silver and Black will open at Minnesota’s TCF Bank Stadium on the University of Minnesota campus, marking the first 2014 Vikings’ game at the Golden Gophers’ home facility. The Raiders return home for a Week 2 contest against Detroit, the second time in three seasons that the Lions will have traveled to Oakland for a preseason tilt.
In preseason Week 3 action, the Raiders will travel to Green Bay to face the Packers for a CBS nationally-televised game on Saturday, Aug. 23. It will mark the first time since 1998 that the Raiders have traveled to Green Bay for a preseason match up. Oakland wraps up the preseason at home for just the second time in the past nine seasons, hosting the Super Bowl XLVIII champion Seattle Seahawks at O.co Coliseum on Thursday, Aug. 28. It will also mark the ninth straight season that the Raiders and Seahawks have met in the preseason finale, and the first time in Oakland since 2010.
Preseason times and specific dates will be announced at a later date.
That works for me.....I may he able to attend both Green Bay and Minnesota games. I am 2 hrs. From GB and 6 from MPLS. Raiders don't make it that close to me that often. It will truly be a treat to see up close and personal.
Wow even our preseason schedule is tough.
I'll be very curious to see how well we can move the ball against Seattle's defense in the last one.
A lot of times, the 1's don't even start the 4th game, bunch of 3rd stringers fighting for a spot on Spec Teams or practice squad, not really even a comparison to a real game, but usually entertaining.
The GB game will test our D some, give us a measuring stick to guage by, give the 2's a shot at Flynn.
