As the Las Vegas Raiders look to find themselves back in the playoffs, here are three games this season with the most interesting storylines.
The Las Vegas Raiders are looking to get back into the playoffs next season, and based on the numbers it seems they’ll have their work cut out for them. Per CBS Sports, Las Vegas has the eighth toughest 2021 schedule, with their opponents’ combined 2020 record totaling 142-128-2 and a winning percentage of .526.
The Raiders will play in a competitive AFC West, but the contention won’t stop there. In fact, the Raiders will be tested on a week-to-week basis in 2021, as there are not too many soft spots in the schedule, and they must prove they can get stops defensively after a tough 2020 campaign on that side of the ball.
Ahead of a formidable regular-season schedule, there are a few games that should be marked on the calendar for a variety of reasons. Whether it be a divisional rivalry, a head-to-head between two historic franchises, or taking place on the primetime stage, Las Vegas has an opportunity to register a couple significant victories in 2021.
Here are three games with the most interesting storylines, starting off the bat with the season opener.
