A closer look into the Raiders' 2024 home slate

The Las Vegas Raiders will be gearing up for eight home games each unique in their own right.

Of their opponents, they'll face all three AFC West divisional foes, two AFC North teams, two NFC South teams and one AFC South team – equating to the eighth hardest schedule in the NFL. Let's take a quick dive into each home opponent on the 2024 schedule.

Week 3 • Carolina Panthers

September 22 • 1:05 p.m. PT

The Raiders' home opener is against a Carolina Panthers coming off a disappointing 2-15 season. This offseason, the Panthers completed a rehaul to their front office and coaching staff, hiring former Panthers linebacker Dan Morgan as their general manager and former Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dave Canales as head coach.

The Panthers vigorously rounded up players to complement 2023 No. 1 pick Bryce Young, including Robert Hunt, Miles Sanders, Diontae Johnson and 2024 first-round pick Xavier Legette from South Carolina. The last time these two teams faced off was in their 2020 season opener, with the Raiders coming out on top 34-30.

Week 4 • Cleveland Browns

September 29 • 1:25 p.m. PT

Staying at home for a second consecutive week, the Cleveland Browns come into town following a 11-6 season and their first playoff berth since 2020. They're expecting to have Deshaun Watson back under center following the injury bug infesting the quarterback room last season.

The big storyline heading into this game will be the battle of two premier edge rushers in Myles Garrett and Maxx Crosby. Both players were 2023 NFL Defensive Player of the Year finalists with Garrett ultimately nabbing the award. He finished the season with 14 sacks, 17 tackles for loss and four forced fumbles.

Crosby's season was as exceptional – leading the league in tackles for loss for a second consecutive season. He also posted career-highs in sacks (14.5), total tackles (90) and led the league in run stop win rate (36 percent) among edge rushers.

Week 6 • Pittsburgh Steelers

October 13 • 1:05 p.m. PT

For a second straight season, the Raiders will host a longtime rival, the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The Steelers shook up their offensive identity, hiring former Atlanta Falcons Head Coach Arthur Smith as their offensive coordinator. They've also added two capable quarterbacks to their roster in nine-time Pro Bowler Russell Wilson and 2021 first-rounder Justin Fields.

And as always, the Raiders offensive line will have to watch out for T.J. Watt, who led the league in sacks (19) in 2023. The former Defensive Player of the Year winner will be a great test for a young group of tackles consisting of team captain Kolton Miller, Thayer Munford Jr. and 2024 third-rounder DJ Glaze.

Week 8 • Kansas City Chiefs

October 27 • 1:25 p.m PT

As Raider Nation watched in dismay as Kansas City won the Super Bowl inside Allegiant Stadium, the Chiefs will return back to the Raiders' home soil in Week 8.

This will be the first matchup between the two AFC West rivals since the Silver and Black bested the Chiefs last season on Christmas Day. It was notably the last game the Chiefs lost that season in route to winning their third Super Bowl in five seasons.

The Chiefs haven't made two many sizable changes to their roster outside of trading cornerback L'Jarius Sneed to the Tennessee Titans. It does appear they've made a deliberate effort in bringing in more weapons for quarterback Patrick Mahomes, signing Marquise Brown and drafting Texas receiver Xavier Worthy with their first-round pick.

Week 12 • Denver Broncos

November 24 • 1:05 p.m. PT

The Raiders haven't lost a home game to the Denver Broncos since 2015 as they (knock on wood) look to keep that streak alive.

The Broncos quarterback situation is the biggest question mark ahead of the season with an active competition ensuing between Bo Nix and Zach Wilson. Nix was their first-round pick after leading the nation in passing touchdowns (45) and completion percentage (77.6) his senior season at Oregon. Wilson was the No. 2 overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft, starting in 33 games for the New York Jets.

The game within a game between Davante Adams and Patrick Surtain II, coming off his second straight Pro Bowl selection, will also be fun to watch.

Week 15 • Atlanta Falcons

December 16 • 5:30 p.m. PT (Monday Night Football)

This primetime affair will have some juice with the Atlanta Falcons' new changes to head coach and quarterback.

They brought in former Los Angeles Rams defensive coordinator Raheem Morris, who was the Falcons interim head coach the last time the team played the Raiders in 2020. Four-time Pro Bowler Kirk Cousins also signed with the team this offseason, with the No. 8 overall pick Michael Penix Jr. expected to be his backup.

The Raiders are hopeful they can end a five-game series skid against the Dirty Birds, having not defeated them since the 2000 season. It's also worth noting that the Falcons are the only winless team in primetime since 2021 (0-2).

Week 16 • Jacksonville Jaguars

December 22 • 1:25 p.m. PT

On par with the Panthers and Chiefs, the Jacksonville Jaguars also brought in more offensive weapons. To replace losing Calvin Ridley in free agency, they signed Gabe Davis, who caught 27 touchdowns in his four seasons with the Buffalo Bills. They also drafted Brian Thomas Jr. from Louisiana State, who led the nation in receiving touchdowns (17) in 2023.

Coming off a 9-8 season, the Jags were a game short of a playoff berth and could be in a similar situation this late in the season when they come to Vegas. The Raiders haven't hosted the Jaguars since Week 15 of the 2019 NFL season, which also happened to be the Silver and Black's last game inside the Oakland Coliseum.

Week 18 • Los Angeles Chargers

To be determined

The final 2024 home game for the Las Vegas Raiders pits them against the Los Angeles Chargers, the team they also open their season against.

There's a lot of bad blood between the two division rivals, with the Silver and Black scoring a franchise record 63 points the last time the Chargers came to Allegiant Stadium. The Raiders also hired Tom Telesco and JoJo Wooden this offseason, who spent an extended period of time together as part of the Chargers front office staff.

While it's only been less than a year since that contest, the Chargers will look a lot different when they come back to Las Vegas. They hired Jim Harbaugh as their head coach on the heels of winning a national championship with the Michigan Wolverines. After parting with longtime staples Austin Ekeler and Keenan Allen, Los Angeles turned to the draft and free agency to fill their roles – drafting three wide receivers and signing running back J.K. Dobbins. The Raiders have won their last three home games against the Chargers.

Take a look at when and where the Las Vegas Raiders will face their opponents for this upcoming season.
