Raiders get nine season wins
Either way, the Raiders should surpass those totals. A healthy Raiders team could easily win ten games. Per CBSSports.com, the average strength of schedule lists at .500 when combining opponent records from the previous season.
Not to mention, the Raiders biggest competition took a step back. The Denver Broncos lost key contributors from their Super Bowl run. The Chiefs also lost their No. 1 corner to Oakland, and Justin Houston remains hurt.
This should help General Manager Reggie McKenzie improve that 18-46 record as head of the Raiders.
