  • For the first time since 2012, the Raiders will play the Bengals, this time hosting them to open the 2015 season.
If the Raiders intend to turn the corner in the season ahead, they may want to start early.

The NFL announced their schedule will kick off against the Cincinnati Bengals (Sept. 13) and the Baltimore Ravens (Sept. 20) at O.co Coliseum. What follows is the most difficult stretch of the season.

From Sept. 27 to Nov. 29, the Raiders will play six of their nine games on the road. They have no game scheduled in Week 6.

Their opponents’ .545 winning percentage last season is the seventh-highest in the league.

The remainder of their home schedule includes dates with the Denver Broncos (Oct. 11), the New York Jets (Nov. 1). the Minnesota Vikings (Nov. 15), the Kansas City Chiefs (Dec. 6), the Green Bay Packers (Dec. 20) and the San Diego Chargers (Dec. 24).

The road slate includes games versus the Cleveland Browns (Sept. 27), the Chicago Bears (Oct. 4), the Chargers (Oct. 25), the Pittsburgh Steelers (No. 8), the Detroit Lions (Nov. 22), the Tennessee Titans (No. 29), the Broncos (Dec. 13) and the Chiefs (Jan. 3).

All except one game are scheduled to be played on Sundays. The home game against the Chargers on Christmas Eve will be played on a Thursday.
