As leaks came out, some began to wonder if there would be a prime time game in Oakland this year. Bruce Irvin at one point thought there wouldn’t be one and had even tweeted out his disappointment.
No Sunday or Monday night game in the town?! That's BULLSHIT!— Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 20, 2017
Shortly after tweeting that out, he was apparently set straight, most likely by someone within the organization, that the Raiders did indeed have a prime time game scheduled in Oakland.

It was only a few minutes before we learned just which game that would be. As it turns out that prime time game will be Sunday Night Football December 17 against the Cowboys according to NBC Bay Area.
