The 2021 NFL Schedule will be released this week and we at Just Blog Baby try to predict the Las Vegas Raiders’ upcoming schedule.
The Las Vegas Raiders had one of the more difficult schedules in the NFL in 2020, and that trend continues into 2021. Based on their opponents’ combined record from last season, the Raiders currently have the 8th toughest schedule in the league.
Much of that had to do of course with playing the defending AFC champions twice, but they also have several games against playoff teams from last season including the Cleveland Browns, Baltimore Ravens, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
Outside of their AFC West division schedule, the Raiders will be playing the AFC North, NFC East, and other second-place teams from around the AFC this upcoming season. There is an additional game that will be against the Chicago Bears, which should make for a juicy matchup thanks to the storylines from the Khalil Mack trade.
As of now we only know who the home and away opponents will be but based on recent trends and things we’ve heard through the rumor mill, we tried to predict when the Raiders will be facing each of their opponents. We start off with a familiar division opponent.
