2010 Oakland Raiders Schedule

The Oakland Raiders have won a combined 14 games over the course of the last three seasons and things may not improve much by the time the 2010 Oakland Raiders Schedule is completed. That less than impressive run includes a 4-12 record from just a year ago. The Raiders tabbed a last-place finish in the AFC West, coming in a full nine games behind the San Diego Chargers.

Oakland struggled mightily to put points on the board, averaging just 12 points per contest, while surrendering 24 per game. at the quarterback position, the Raiders began the season with JaMarcus Russell, but the lack or production out of the top pick in the 2007 NFL Draft caused the organization to release him in the off season. It is likely now that Oakland will turn to Bruce Gradkowski and Charlie Frye, who both saw playing time in 2009.

Looking ahead to the 2010 Oakland Raiders Season Schedule, the Raiders will face the NFC West in their out-of-conference portion of the schedule. In addition to their AFC West opponents, Oakland will also square off against the AFC South, that features the Indianapolis Colts, who won the AFC Conference last season behind MVP Peyton Manning.
