Oakland Raiders: A Look at 2012 Opponents

Today sucked. This defense is terrible, and the Chargers offense is still good when Rivers gets time. This defense needs work. Use this thread to vent, bitch or whatever else you want.

I'm already ready for next season, and I just want to put the misery of opportunities missed behind me. In light of that here are the teams the Raiders will play.

Jacksonville Jaguars

Miami Dolphins

Pittsburgh Steelers

Baltimore Ravens

Cincinnati Bengals

Cleveland Browns

New Orleans Saints

Atlanta Falcons

Carolina Panthers

Tampa Bay Buccaneers

And the usual AFC West suspects

I have to be honest, that scedule looks pretty brutal. A lot changes in a year in the NFL, but as it is now the only teams I see on that list where I look at and think that should definitely be a win are the Browns and the Buccaneers (who might be the worst team in the history of the NFL right now).

The Jaguars are awful, but with Maurice Jones-Drew and the Raiders run defense, I won't say that is an easy one. The Panthers defense is terrible, but with Newton's running ability against the Raiders = me nervous.

Still, this is a long time away. Hopefully, the Raiders' defense is a different beast next year.
