September

Jon Gruden begins his second stint in Oakland at home, as the Raiders face the suddenly scary Rams. After two games on the road, the Silver and Black close the month out with an afternoon tilt with the Browns and former coach Hue Jackson.

October

When the Raiders enter the second quarter of the season, two of their three games will be away from O.co. In addition, the Raiders fly to the United Kingdom for a “home” game versus the Seattle Seahawks.

November

The second half of 2018 begins with the Battle of the Bay. As a result, look for the heat and trash talk to increase between these storied franchises. After the Raiders host the Chargers, they battle the Ravens and Cardinals away from Oakland.

December

Finally, to close out the regular season, the Raiders play three division games and two other conference battles.

In reality, forecasting wins and losses before the draft and camp is nearly impossible. However, what we can see is the Gruden Effect. Four of the games see the Raiders enjoying a primetime matchup.
