Las Vegas Raiders 2021 Schedule Released

The Raiders will appear in three primetime games this season

By Raymond Harrison

The NFL released the schedule for the 2021 season on Wednesday afternoon, and the Las Vegas Raiders will start their year in primetime.

Their Week 1 matchup with the Baltimore Ravens takes place Sept. 13 on Monday Night Football. The game marks the first time that fans will be able to enter Allegiant Stadium to watch the Raiders.

After an 8-8 season in 2020, many speculate whether the team has done enough to make a postseason push. A winning year would certainly help endear them to the Nevada faithful, but several question marks remain.

Unfortunately, their matchups do not help. Based on the 2020 records of their 2021 opponents, the Raiders have the eighth-hardest schedule in football. Here is their full 2021 regular season schedule:

16Dec. 26vs. Broncos1:25 PM

Seeing Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs is always entertaining, making Week 10 and Week 14 must-watch affairs. All things considered, however, the Raiders have their work cut out for them if they are going to make a push this year.

See y’all at Allegiant Stadium!
