The Raiders now know which four teams they’ll face in the preseason.
Oakland hosts the Lions Week 1, visits the Rams Week 2 (at the Los Angeles Coliseum), hosts the Packers Week 3 and visits the Seahawks Week 4 for the 13th straight preseason. None of the Raiders’ preseason games will be nationally televised. Both teams they travel to during the preseason, the Rams and Seahawks, will also see the Raiders during the regular season.
There are no specific dates set for the games, but we do know the date ranges in which each game will be played. Week 1 happens between Aug. 9 and 13, Week 2 between Aug. 16 and 20, Week 3 between Aug. 23 and 26 and Week 4 on Aug. 30 or 31.
If you’re desperate for a Raiders preseason storyline, here’s one: Jordy Nelson faces his former Green Bay team during Week 3 in Oakland.
As for the Raiders’ regular season schedule, that slate will come out later this month. Oakland already knows who it will play and where, just not when.The Raiders get each AFC West opponent at home, along with the Browns, Steelers, Rams and Colts. They’ll also play a “home” game against the Seahawks in London. Oakland’s away slate includes each division foe, as well as the 49ers, Cardinals, Ravens, Bengals and Dolphins.
The next notable date on the NFL calendar is the draft, which kicks off Thursday, April 26 and continues until Saturday, April 28.
