The Raiders are transitioning into a new city, with a brand new stadium and expectations to put on a show worthy of Las Vegas are exceptionally high. But what about the realistic expectations of how the Las Vegas Raiders will fare in regards to record and production? Many around the media, like Raiders reporter Paul Gutierrez, believe they will end right around where they fared last season.
He has them finishing with the same record at 7-9, while others predicted anywhere from 6-10 to 9-7.
After seeing all the reinforcements on defense, and shiny new toys at Jon Gruden's disposal on offense, it's hard not to think the Raiders will be able to improve from their record a year ago.
