Officially, it’s one down, 16 to go for the Las Vegas Raiders’ 2023 schedule.

Early Thursday morning, as part of its slow trickle of teasing games leading to tonight’s full NFL schedule release, the league announced that the Raiders will play against the Kansas City Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium on Christmas Day at 10 a.m. PT. It will be shown on CBS and Nickelodeon.

While that game is official, the entire schedule will be released at 5 p.m. PT. Yet, there are reports and rumors coming out. We will put them in this post. Remember, nothing that doesn’t come from the NFL is official.

Yet, there is a report that the Raiders will host Davante Adams’ former team, the Green Bay Packers, on Oct. 9 on Monday Night Football.

So, there are already two reported high-profile games on the Raiders’ 2023 slate.

There are rumors out of the Big Apple the Raiders’ home game against the New York Giants will be played on Dec. 31. That would make the usually wild New Year’s Eve on The Strip even more crazy if true.

UPDATE: Those rumors are reportedly wrong. Darren Waller and the Giants are reportedly coming to Vegas in Week 9.

There are also rumors out of Buffalo that the Raiders will play at the Bills in Week 2.

There are rumors in Kansas City that the Raiders will host the Chiefs in Week 12. That would mean two late season games against the champs.

The Athletic is reporting the Raiders will play at the Detroit Lions on “Monday Night Football: in Week 8. That’s two Monday nighter’s plus a Christmas day slot with less of the schedule leaked.

The Raiders reportedly will host the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 3 on a short week for the Steelers.

The Athletic is reporting the Raiders will open the season at Denver. That means they could open the season with back-to-back road trips.

Check back for more rumors and leaks throughout the day leading up to the 5 p.m. PT release.
