Another leak of the Raiders schedule is out and it has the Raiders once again opening at home on Monday Night Football. This according to multiple reports including Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic.

Broncos at Raiders will be the second of the usual Monday Night double header following Houston at New Orleans.
The Jon Gruden era was rung in with an appearance on Monday Night Football in Oakland in 2018. The former longtime MNF announcer makes it two for his first two seasons as head coach opening on his former network.
The last game in Oakland was Monday Night Football win over the Broncos in week 16 of last season in what many thought could have been the last game EVER in Oakland. The City of Oakland had filed their lawsuit against the Raiders and the NFL and Mark Davis immediately threatened to play the 2019 season elsewhere. That didn’t work out and here we are again.
