The Las Vegas Raiders revealed their 2020 schedule for their inaugural season in Las Vegas. We take a look at toughest stretch on their road to the playoffs
The NFL released the 2020 schedule late on the evening of May 7th as Raider Nation waited with anxious anticipation for their full slate of opponents. The Las Vegas Raiders already knew who their opponents would be thanks to the NFL’s standard method of adding AFC opponents that finished in the same place in their respective divisions as well as a rotating number of NFC teams, but they did not know when each opponent would be faced.
After the schedule dropped, the Las Vegas Raiders were revealed to have four primetime games on the calendar with the possibility of two more as both Week 16 and 17 could be flexed in to the evening depending on their importance.
Aside from the primetime games, the Raiders have the added challenge of facing some top-tier NFC opponents in the NFC South and will also of course play the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs twice.
In 2019 the Raiders overcame their toughest stretch of the season that included going seven weeks without a proper home game in Oakland but faded late in the season against some subpar opponents.
Let’s take a look at what is going to be the toughest stretch of the season for the Raiders in their inaugural season in Las Vegas.
