With this week’s trip to Minnesota the Raiders begin a span of seven weeks in which they will not play a home game in Oakland. The road trip includes stops in London, Green Bay, Indianapolis, and Houston.
Not only will the Raiders be tested physically on the field but they will be tested mentally with all the miles of travel. Things will certainly be more enjoyable if they could rack up a couple of wins.
It won’t be easy this week against the Vikings who have talent all over the place on both sides of the ball and a big time home field advantage playing in US Bank Stadium.
