The Las Vegas Raiders Super-Sized Schedule
The 2021 NFL regular season schedule was leaked most of the day and then finally released in its entirety Wednesday evening.
We did know a couple of things already in regards to the Las Vegas Raiders. We knew based off of the opponents record in 2020 they would have the league’s most difficult schedule and they along with the rest of the league would have their largest scheduled ever.
Welcome to football in 2021.
The super-sized schedule features one more regular season game that will take 18 weeks to play and will cross over into 2022. The Raiders will finally be able to welcome fans into their brand-new stadium this season and they will also be spotlighted on the national stage four times with a possibility of five games.
The Raiders open the season on Monday Night at home against Lamar Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens. They have another Monday Night game three weeks later in Los Angeles against the Chargers on October 4th. In mid-November the Raiders host the Chiefs on Football Night America on Sunday Night Football.
Lastly, they have a chance for one more game on a big stage in December when they battle the Browns. The date of the game has yet to be determined as it could be Saturday or Sunday.
