2. The Las Vegas Raiders’ remaining schedule is favorable

Another reason the Raiders can still turn this disaster into a playoff run is in Week 5 the Raiders were playing at their best so far this season, finally showing that they are clicking offensively and defensively. Their schedule after the bye week also sets them up for a possible win streak;

  • Week 7- Houston Texans
  • Week 8- New Orleans Saints
  • Week 9- Jacksonville Jaguars
  • Week 10- Indianapolis Colts
  • Week 11- Denver Broncos
  • Week 12- Seattle Seahawks
  • Week 13- Los Angeles Chargers
  • Week 14- Los Angeles Rams
  • Week 15- New England Patriots
  • Week 16- Pittsburgh Steelers
  • Week 17- San Francisco 49ers
  • Week 18- Kansas City Chiefs

The Raiders could realistically win 10 of the remaining 12 games on the schedule giving them a regular season record of 11-6. That would likely be enough for them to make it into the playoffs and reach the beginning of the expectations for this loaded team.
