The Raiders began playing in 1960 as part of the American Football League (AFL). After a sluggish start to the franchise, and the emergence of Al Davis in 1963, the Raiders became the most dominant team during the 10 years of AFL existence. The NFL and AFL officially merged in 1970 allowing the Raiders to expand the horizons of competition and dominance. The Raiders have a .500 or better record against 22 of 31 teams in the National Football League.
The following table reflects the Raiders regular season records against all of the other 31 NFL franchises. The Raiders faced the expansion Houston Texans for the first time in 2004.
