opponents-2019-main-010419

The Oakland Raiders concluded the 2018 campaign yesterday, but we can already look ahead to 2019 and see who the team will play next season. The opponents for all 2019 regular-season games have been determined and a complete list of each team’s home and away matchups was issued today by the NFL.

The scheduling formula implemented in 2002 with realignment guarantees that all teams play each other on a regular, rotating basis.

Under the formula, every team plays 16 games as follows:​

  • Home and away against its three division opponents (6 games).
  • The four teams from another division within its conference on a rotating three-year cycle (4 games)
  • The four teams from a division in the other conference on a rotating four-year cycle (4 games)
  • Two intraconference games based on the prior year’s standings (2 games). These games match a first-place team against the first-place teams in the two same-conference divisions the team is not scheduled to play that season. The second-place, third-place, and fourth-place teams in a conference are matched in the same way each year.
  • ​Beginning in 2010, a change was made to how​​​​ teams are paired in the schedule rotation with the AFC and NFC West divisions.
  • The official 2019 schedule, with playing dates and times, will be announced in the spring.
  • NFL Kickoff 2019 Weekend will begin on Thursday night, September 5, and the regular season will conclude on Sunday, December 29.​
  • The season will conclude with Super Bowl LIV in Miami on Sunday, February 2, 2020.​​
