Week One: at Carolina
Raiders should open the season with a win. Carolina is in a minor rebuild with Teddy Bridgewater leading the way. Raiders should come out on top.
Week Two: vs New Orleans
Back to back NFC South opponents, this one though, likely ends in a loss.
Week Three: at New England
Raiders pull off the win here. With the Brady era over in Foxborough, the Patriots won’t be the powerhouse they once were.
Week Four: vs Buffalo
Another back to back divisional battle, this one with the AFC East. Like the last, this one ends in a loss. Buffalo will be a surprisingly good team.
Week Five: at Kansas City
Raiders get a loss here heading into the bye week. It’s hard to see anyone beating Kansas City again this year.
Week Seven: at Tampa Bay
Speaking of Tom Brady, he’s now in the NFC South with Tampa. Fortunately for the Raiders, I think the Bucs will be overrated. They’ll take a win here.
Week Eight: at Cleveland
Easy win here. Browns are going to be a dumpster fire again.
Week Nine: at Los Angeles Chargers
Another tally in the “win” column here.
Week Ten: vs Denver
Divisional match up at home against Denver. Should be a tough game, but I like the odds here with a win.
Week Eleven: vs Kansas City
Again, I don’t see anyone beating Kansas City.
Week Twelve: at Atlanta
It’s a win. Not much to see.
Week Thirteen: at NY Jets
Jets pull off the upset here. They could be sneakily good this year.
Week Fourteen: vs Indianapolis
Colts are in a huge rebuild, chalk up the win here for Vegas.
Week Fifteen: vs Los Angeles Chargers
Week Sixteen: vs Miami Dolphins
At this point in the season, Tua will be starting for Miami, so I like them to take the win.
Week Seventeen: at Denver
Ending the season in the mile high city is always rough, Denver takes the win.
Final W/L: 9-7
They’re going to be shooting for a wildcard spot, and it’ll be tough with a new resurgence in the AFC East, and the always tough AFC North fighting for spots.
