The Oakland Raiders finished last season with a 4-12 record, last place in the loaded AFC West. The division sent three teams to the playoffs.
The Raiders have the toughest schedule in the NFL based on opponents' win percentages from last year. They open the season on the road at the New York Jets, who finished 8-8 last season.
Oakland has not made the playoffs since the 2002 season.
