Last season, the Oakland Raiders finished the regular season with a 4-12 mark, finishing in last place by five games in the AFC West. They drafted outside linebacker Khalil Mack in the first round of this year’s draft, and acquired running back Maurice Jones-Drew, wide receiver James Jones, and defensive end Justin Tuck in the off-season.
Oakland opens the 2014 preseason on the road against the Minnesota Vikings, followed by a home game against Detroit, before closing at Green Bay and at home against Seattle. The Raiders begin the regular season Sept. 7 on the road against the New York Jets.
