The Oakland Raiders have a tough road ahead of them in their quest to make the NFL Playoffs next season. These are the 5 toughest games standing between the 2015 Raiders and a potential postseason berth.
5) San Diego Chargers (December 24th)
San Diego is a borderline playoff team, and having to play this game on an extremely short week (this Thursday night game comes just four days after they face the Green Bay Packers on Sunday) adds to the difficulty.
4) Baltimore Ravens (September 20th)
Baltimore will be one of the best teams in the AFC again this year, and Joe Flacco should be able to have a field day against Oakland's inconsistent secondary. This game will be the Raiders' first test of the year and will tell us how far Oakland's young studs have come in the offseason.
3) Green Bay Packers (December 20th)
Facing the reigning NFL MVP is always a tough task, especially with Oakland's young defense. The good news for the Raiders is that this is a home game, which should give them some sort of advantage.
2) @ Pittsburgh Steelers (November 8th)
The Steelers are poised to make another run at the Super Bowl behind Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell, and Antonio Brown. All of those weapons will give Oakland an extremely tough time as they try to move up the AFC pecking order.
1) @ Denver Broncos (December 13th)
Facing Peyton Manning on the road is one of the toughest tasks in football, and will be the toughest Oakland has to face this year.Back to the Las Vegas Raiders Newsfeed
