The NFL announced the preseason schedule on Thursday and the Raiders will host a nationally televised game during the third week of the exhibition season.

Oakland opens with two straight road games, playing at the Arizona Cardinals in the first week, Aug. 11-15 (exact game dates have not yet been set except for the national TV games and the final week). The Raiders then head to Green Bay to play the Packers sometime in the Aug. 18-22 range.

The first home game at the Coliseum comes Saturday, Aug. 27 when the Raiders play host to the Tennessee Titans. That game will air nationally on CBS.

The final preseason game is Thursday, Sept. 1 at home against the Seattle Seahawks — the second straight year the Raiders and Seahawks will meet to close out the preseason.

As for the rest of the Raiders’ offseason, their official offseason program begins Monday, April 18. Rookie mini-camp begins Friday, May 13, the first OTA session starts Tuesday, May 24, followed by another on Tuesday, May 31 and the last on Tuesday, June 7. The team’s mandatory mini-camp is June 14-16. The Raiders have not yet released the official start day for training camp.

    And yet Carr wins the MVP anyway because he’s simply the best player in the league, regardless of record.

    I won’t pretend to know what goes on behind the scenes. But I’ll bet it’s a huge part of it.

    Reggie didn’t have his scouting department during his first draft…

  • This is why the nomadic schedule is right for this team. Just pick 8 cities around the world we want to spend a weekend in and make it a Raider game! To quote John Madden and JPP’s hand, “BOOM!”
