    Geesh our schedule but what should we expect when we won 12 games last year and won our division. It makes sense when you see teams who went 4 and 12 last year like Dallas who’ve played a terrible Giants and Redskins so far plus get the Dolphins at home this week. Way to go NFL you cheating mother ****ers

    There's nothing wrong with the schedule. It's pretty much formula based, so there's no fixin going on. The only problem I have is who scheduled all these road games in a row? Although, if we can come up with some W's, this could pay off later in the season.

    It’s technically 2 on the road. Then home to the Bears (game is in London) then two on the road. Because we’re relocating we have to play the out of country games as the home team.

    I understand that. But, if you check in the past, most teams that had played across the pond, usually had a home game or a bye week following. We have 2 road games right after that.

    No doubt but we’re the Raiders.

    Vikings won't call off the dogs like Reid did. Carr completes 21 / 27 for 180 yards and 0 td's. Vikes win 42-9

    I agree, I wish someone had a logical, intelligent explanation as to why the Raiders will not be back home to play a game till November. Butt screwed again.

    How in the world is Minny a 9 point favorite? If I were betting, I'd take that 9 points.

    It's so the city of Oakland and Alameda County can get a preview of what it's like to see $0.00 from game day revenues. Ditto for local businesses. They better get used to it.

    I forget the exact statistic, but supposedly the average NFL game generates tens of millions of dollars to the local economy. Not even playoff baseball games bring in that kind of cash.

    They’ve got a solid team, good defense and great rushing attack. We better be ready
