With Wednesday’s official release of the 2014 National Football League schedule, football fans now know the dates of every game this season and can now look forward to the most highly anticipated games of the season. Most importantly, Raider Nation now can decide which games are the most enticing out of their 16 game schedule this season. Which ones will be entertaining affairs and which ones will be forgotten as quickly as they began.
In order to determine which Raiders games will be the highest quality in 2o14 Just Blog Baby set out to rank the Oakland Raiders schedule in terms of quality based on the following criteria:
- Quality of Opponent: Obviously nobody is going to be looking forward to playing the Bills so who the Raiders are playing matters, it is all about the glory.
- Rivalry: See quality of opponent, if there isn’t bragging rights on the line the game is never as memorable.
- Location, Location, Location: While road games are fun, nothing beats a classic game at the Coliseum. Same goes for timing, which week the game is played also was considered.
- Chance of Victory: Just Win Baby.
With that being said on to the rankings (From 16 to 1)
