They will face the Broncos and Rams this season on Monday night according to this report. And if the order of teams is also intentional, they’re both in Oakland. Though we don’t yet know which weeks they’ll be, we’ll find that out very soon.
It had already been reported the Raiders will be facing the 49ers on Thursday Night Football in week 9 in San Francisco. That makes three primetime games so far even without hearing whether they will play any Sunday Night games.
