The regular season schedule will always receive more attention than the preseason; however, the Las Vegas Raiders will take the field at Allegiant Stadium for the first time in August to kickoff the preseason, and it might be the most highly anticipated preseason in team history.
Here's a look at the preseason schedule:

|Aug. 27-30||ARIZONA CARDINALS||TBD||TBD|
|Sept. 3-4||LOS ANGELES RAMS||TBD||TBD|
