Here’s the Raiders full schedule for the 2021 NFL Season

The NFL released the Las Vegas Raiders schedule on Wednesday, May 12. We break it down, including a full list of games, prime time matchups, and strength of schedule.

The NFL announced the complete 2021 schedule on Wednesday, May 12, and the Las Vegas Raiders are officially set to kick off their 2021 season at home against the Baltimore Ravens on Monday Night Football. Their first divisional game will be in Week 4 against the Los Angeles Chargers on the road.

The Raiders have improved their record in each of the last two seasons and finished 200 at .500 (8-8). Derek Carr threw for a career-high 4,103 yards and formed one of the NFL’s most formidable duos with tight end Darren Waller. While Henry Ruggs fell well short of expectations in his rookie year, Josh Jacobs showed major improvement in his sophomore campaign. Las Vegas’s receiving corps and defense will have to get much better if the Raiders want to catch up to the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West.

All times listed are Eastern.
