Football season is here and the Las Vegas Raiders have everything to prove in 2021, but can they do it with such a grueling schedule?
After months of waiting, the season is finally here, and the Las Vegas Raiders open their 2021 campaign on Monday night football against the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore comes into the game banged up, but they are still the Ravens and will be a tall order for this 2021 Raiders team.
The Raiders will be looking to take that next step under Jon Gruden and finally make the playoffs in year four. Though to do that, they will need to overcome a challenging schedule.
According to Warren Sharp’s metrics, the Raiders have the toughest schedule going into the season. They are among the teams that will travel the least in the league, so that is a plus, but nothing will come easy outside of maybe three of four games.
With that in mind, let’s do our best to give a quick synopsis of all 17 games and see where the Raiders could end up at the season’s end.
