The NFL has announced the Oakland Raiders 2014 schedule, which means the season is inching closer. The team began their offseason workout program on Tuesday. In 2014, the Raiders will face a brutal test, ranking as the toughest in the league based on the 2013 results. Oakland will play all four NFL Championship game representatives including the San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots as well as Super Bowl teams in the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. Two other AFC West teams made the playoffs in the Kansas City Chiefs and San Diego Chargers, who the Raiders play twice. They have one prime time game against the Chiefs on Thursday night, November 20th which will air on the NFL Network. No Monday or Sunday night games for the Raiders in 2014, unless one gets flexed. That makes nine games with six playoff teams from 2013.
The rest of the schedule will be rounded out with the remaining teams from the NFC West which are the up-and-coming St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals. They play the rest of the AFC East which includes the New York Jets, Miami Dolphins (in London), and Buffalo Bills. The Raiders other opponents will be the last placed teams in the other AFC divisions because that is where Oakland finished in 2013. That will include the Cleveland Browns and Houston Texans.
