At long last we can begin making our plans for the 2012 NFL Season. Today the NFL unveiled the full slate of games for the upcoming season. You can see the NFL schedule in its entirety here.
Since we’re Raider-centric here at JBB the only schedule that really matters is that of the silver and black.
In what is becoming a somewhat annual tradition, the Raiders will open the regular season on Monday Night as they close the first week of the 2012 season by welcoming the San Diego Chargers to the Bay. That is one of two primetime contests the Raiders will be featured in this season (three if you include the Monday Night preseason game as well). The second primetime regular season swing for the Raiders is also a rivalry game with Denver coming to Oakland for a Thursday Night affair in December.
So, it is with great pleasure I say unto you, Raider Nation…start making your travel and tailgating plans now!
