There's no rest for the weary it would seem. After having the toughest strength of schedule in 2014, the Raiders 2015 schedule presents them with yet another tough road to travel.
According to their 2014 records, Raiders will have the 6th toughest schedule in the NFL this coming season. Here is how the strength of schedule order for next season stacks up (courtesy of Blogging The Boys):

As you can see, despite the Raiders playing the worst teams in the AFC East and AFC South, they have tougher schedules than their three AFC West counterparts. That's in part because their AFC West counterparts get to play the Raiders and their 3-13 record twice. While the Raiders have to face each of them twice with all three finishing 2014 with winning records.

One thing you might notice is only five of the teams the Raiders play in 2015 don't have winning records this past season -- Browns (7-9), Vikings (7-9), Bears (5-11), Jets (4-12), and Titans (2-14).
If the Raiders are going to pull out of their 12-year slump, it won't be easy.
