It’s going to be an exciting yet busy season for the Las Vegas Raiders.

Part of that will have to do with the fact that the Raiders are receiving four prime-time games this season. The Silver and Black receive their first primetime game in Week 5 at the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football.

The rest come on three consecutive weeks between weeks 14 to 16.

The Week 14 prime-time game is at the Los Angeles Rams on the new Thursday Night Football package on Amazon Prime Video. Playing at SoFi Stadium against Super Bowl LVI Champions and Matthew Stafford’s crew will only be tougher when it’s their home crowd.

Primetime games continue into Week 15 against the New England Patriots, their first and only home primetime game during the 2022 season. Playing on Sunday Night Football against Coach Josh McDaniels and General Manager Dave Ziegler’s former team, this one is bound to be entertaining since both were previously with the Patriots.

The prime-time portion of the Raiders season is Wrapping up in Week 16 at the Pittsburgh Steelers. This game will be a special Christmas Eve primetime matchup that will air on NFL Network.

In addition to the Raiders at the Steelers matchup, NFL Network will hold several “Special” primetime games beginning with the London Series during both Week 4 and 5. Minnesota Vikings and New Orleans Saints play in Week 4 while New York Giants and Green Bay Packers play in Week 5.

In Week 10, the first regular-season NFL game to be played in Germany will occur between the Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Munich.

Prior to the Week 16 prime-time finale for NFL Network, they will host a triple header during Week 15 on Saturday, Dec. 17, with the first match beginning at 1:00 p.m. ET. The second match will air at 4:15 p.m. ET while the nightcap will air at 8:30 p.m. ET.

A slew of prime-time games for the Las Vegas Raiders alongside the shift of prime-time packages during the 2022 season should offer more NFL throughout the week.
