We've finally made it. After the long six month march that was The Super Bowl -> The Draft -> The Schedule Release, we're finally free. The Raiders' schedule is here, and it's beautiful! So many winnable games! (This isn't even a joke – it looks really easy. Like, suspiciously so.) And sure, we already knew most of this information. But more importantly, we didn't know ALL of it. But now we do!

There's plenty of reasons to start getting excited about these games. Davante Adams is still around! This defense was getting better and better at the end of last year! Maybe this is the year that Gardner Minshew figures it out! And with basically nothing on the NFL calendar before training camp starts in two months, this is the last time* we'll talk about it until July. (*It's not.)

So of course we're going to rank these games. Before we get to the rankings, here's how the full 17 weeks plays out:
