• For the third time in four years (2010, 2011 and 2013), the Raiders will open on the road.
• The Raiders open at Indianapolis, renewing a storied rivalry with that franchise that includes the Ghost to the Post contest in 1977. This season marks the first time the Raiders have ever kicked off a season against the Indianapolis/Baltimore Colts.
• Oakland will travel to Dallas for a Thanksgiving Day matchup for the second time in four years. The Raiders fell to the Cowboys on Nov. 26, 2009, 24-7.
• The Raiders will play a Monday night game at Denver in Week 3, marking the latest in the year that Oakland has played a Monday Night contest since 2006 (Nov. 6, 2006, at Seattle).
• The Raiders will have the unique experience of playing both New York teams at MetLife Stadium this season, traveling to take on the Giants on Nov. 11 and the Jets on Dec. 8. It will be the third time in team history that the Raiders have traveled to the Big Apple to face both the Jets and Giants in a single regular season, joining the 1989 and 1995 campaigns. The Raiders were a combined 3-1 in those games.
• The Silver and Black will visit two NFL venues for the first time this season. Oakland will play at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis for the first time on Sept. 8, and will travel to MetLife Stadium in New York for a pair of games in 2013.
• The Raiders will play five games against teams that earned postseason berths in 2012. Oakland will play two games against Denver, host Washington and travel to Houston and Indianapolis.
• Three of the Raiders’ four victories last season came at O.co Coliseum, and the Silver and Black will be hosting all three of those opponents again this season. Jacksonville (Sept. 15), Pittsburgh (Oct. 27) and Kansas City (Dec. 15) will all play games in Oakland in 2013.
• Three of the Raiders’ first five games will be at home, but four of the Raiders’ five games from Week 10 - Week 14 will be on the road.
• The Raiders will meet the Broncos on a Monday night for the first time since 2011, when Oakland defeated Denver 23-20 in the season opener.
• Oakland will close a season against the Broncos for the first time since 1995, the Raiders’ first season after returning to Oakland.
• Oakland’s six division games are bunched at the front end (Weeks 3, 5 and 6) and the back end (Weeks 15, 16 and 17) of the schedule.
• The Raiders close a season with three division games for the first time since 1996, when they hosted Kansas City, then traveled to Denver and returned home for Seattle, a former AFC West foe.
• The Raiders’ three trips to the Eastern Time Zone are somewhat spread out, at Indianapolis in Week 1, at the Giants in Week 10 and at the Jets in Week 14.
• Five of the Raiders’ final eight contests are on the road, including three of their last five. However, after their Thanksgiving Day game at Dallas Nov. 28, Oakland will get a few days of rest before returning to the Meadowlands to face the Jets on Dec. 8.
• Tennessee will visit O.co Coliseum on Nov. 24, marking the Titans’ first visit to Oakland since the 2004 season, the longest stretch without a visit among AFC teams.
• The Raiders will travel to Houston on Nov. 17 for the first time since an emotional 25-20 victory over the Texans on Oct. 9, 2011, the day after the passing of owner Al Davis.

Raiders to have fourth 'easiest' schedule in 2013
Paul Gutierrez, Comcast SportsNet
A 4-12 season has its, um, rewards, no?

The chance to coach in the Senior Bowl. The No. 3 overall draft pick. And, as it turns out, the fourth "easiest" schedule in the NFL for 2013.

At least, that's what the .469 combined winning percentage of the Raiders' opponents next season, as compiled by NFL.com, tells us...

By the way, the Denver Broncos have the NFL's easiest schedule next year

its kind of puzzling to me...the last time we played dallas was on thanksgiving in 2009-we played at the new cowboys stadium(lost badly),we also played pittsburgh in 2012 at home(coliseum) and won this past season....shouldn;t we play dallas at home in 2013 and at pittsburgh in 2013?

In regards to the Pit Game.

Our 2012 game was when we played the full AFC NORTH slate of teams and we were scheduled to play Pit at home after last playing them in the AFC NORTH schedule of games at Heinz Field (that was the same season that Bruce Gradkowski beat the Bengals at home and Pittsburgh at Heinz Field)

In regards to the Dallas game, they sometimes don't rotate it every couple of years for reasons unbeknown to me and it's happening in this instance (another time this has happened was when Randy Moss scored his 100th touchdown pass at Candlestick stadium and 4 years later you think the game would be played at Oakland, but the raiders got a 2nd consecutive trip to the the Candledick where we lost something pathetic like 13-9 after leading 9-0) 2010 season.

I think the rotation requirement is that we play each team at home and away at least once each 8 year cycle. I don't think there's any requirement that says they have to alternate home and away though. So maybe you could play home first, then away second (vs a certain team) in one 8-year cycle, then away first and home second in the next 8-year cycle.

Here is the way the rule is spelled out:

·        Teams are guaranteed to play all nondivision opponents in their conference at least once every three years, and at home at least once every six years.

·        Every AFC team will play every NFC team once every four years, and at home once every eight years.


So.... the requirement only states that we must play every AFC team at home at least once every 6 years, and every NFC team at home exactly once every 8 years....it doesn't say that if you play a team at home the first time you play them in a cycle, then away the 2nd time you play them....that in the next 8-year cycle you have to repeat this pattern. What's too keep the home/away from reversing in the next 8-year cycle? So maybe home/away in one 8-year cycle, then away/home in the next one.

For instance, play against the 49ers in SF in 2010, Oakland in 2014, Oakland again in 2018, then SF in 2022. The two away games would be 12 years apart, and the two home games 4 years apart....but you would still be within the rules of the rotation. What do you think?
