Raiders 2010 Schedule With Analysis

The 2010 Raiders schedule:

– Features no primetime games: Consider it a blessing. Raiders haven't fared well on National TV of late. It is always nice to have one, but the Raiders must earn one this season.

– The Raiders will play division opponents in weeks 5, 7, 9, 13, 15, 17. Evenly spaced games a departure from 2009's back-to-back-to-back

– One or two cold weather games: at Kansas City in early January and a Nov 21 matchup in Pittsburgh having cold weather potential.

– Bye week comes late in week 10. Usually a pretty favorable time to get a bye is late in the season as guys get dinged up.

– Two big time running backs will test the Raiders rush defense in the first two weeks. Chris Johnson and Steven Jackson

– If the Raiders somehow challenge for a playoff spot, weeks 15, 16 and 17 could be pivotal. They could play tough or easy depending on scenario and flexible scheduling may allow yet for a primetime game IF the Raiders improve.
