Oakland Raiders Road Schedule in 2014
The Oakland Raiders are ready to set sail in 2014 and take on some of the
best teams in the National Football League away from home. The Raiders are coming off another season where they had some trouble
finding a rhythm. The team put together some nice games, but consistency seems to elude this group. The team is rebuilding,
however, and progress is being made, so Raiders fans are certainly looking forward to moving forward with some of the players
currently on the roster. The quarterback position has been in flux as of late, and Oakland is hoping to find a long-term answer
at the position as soon as possible. The Raiders have a lot of exciting match-ups on their road schedule this season, and
the most loyal fans will certainly travel with the team to see all of the action for themselves.
The Raiders always
look forward to traveling down the coast to San Diego to take on the Chargers. These two teams are bitter rivals, and every
match-ups between the two is heated. The Raiders would love to leave San Diego with a huge victory against this divisional
foe, and they've got a better chance to make that happen if they have some of their own fans in the stands.
will head to Denver this season to take on the AFC Champion Denver Broncos. The Broncos have one of the most prolific offenses
in the history of the National Football League, led by future Hall of Fame quarterback Peyton Manning. Oakland's defense is
going to have their work cut out for them in this contest, but if they can slow down Manning and the passing game even a little
bit, it might leave the Broncos vulnerable. The Denver defense was exploited several times last season; it's outscoring the
Denver offense that is the challenge. The Raiders have enough playmakers to give this juggernaut a run for their money, though,
and it would be a great victory to hang their hat on in 2014.
Oakland Raiders Team Info
The Oakland Raiders
are currently rebuilding and trying to see which players on the roster they want to move forward with, and which they want
to move on from. The team experienced a rash of injuries last season, and that hurt the team's record. On the quarterback
front, Matt Flynn was brought in to be the starter last season, but was beaten out for the starting gig by Terrell Pryor.
Pryor showed flashes of improving his throwing accuracy, but has was hobbled by injuries throughout the year. Matt McGloin,
an undrafted rookie out of Penn State last season, got some run under center as well, and has shown flashes of ability. The
Raiders traded for quarterback Matt Schaub in the offseason, getting him on the cheap from the Houston Texans. Schaub had
some good seasons for Houston before struggling in 2013, and the Raiders are surely hoping that he can return to form and
earn the starting gig in Oakland this season. The Raiders will look to make some major strides this season and contend for
the AFC West title.

the best teams in the league away from home, making for a multitude of great games for the fans to attend throughout the season.

old. Fans head out to the stadium as often as possible for that very reason.
Oakland Raiders Trivia
was the last time the Oakland Raiders reached the Super Bowl?
The answer is 2002, when they ended up falling to the
Tampa Bay Bucs. The Bucs had a big advantage in that game, as the Raiders coach from the previous season, John Gruden, was
running the Tampa schemes in that game. The Raiders' team was relatively unchanged from the year before, and Gruden obviously
knew the weaknesses of the Oakland players.
