4. AFC West Finales
The Raiders will close their season with three straight divisional matchups against their AFC West rivals. If the Raiders exceed expectations and stay in the playoff hunt, the final three weeks will have big postseason implications on the line. If the Raiders don’t vastly improve over last season’s four win campaign, the final three games will give a last look at how the team stacks up in the division and what direction they should go in the offseason with a ton of cap space to work with.
The Raiders went 2-4 in divisional play last season, with both wins coming against the Kansas City Chiefs.
