There aren’t many good things to say about the Oakland Raiders’ 2018 season, after ending with a 4-12 record in coach John Gruden’s first season back.
However, Gruden and the renewed team want to surprise many critics this year. To make it happen, they will probably have to overachieve in 2019.
Raiders Face A Very Tough Division
The Raiders are inside a division with two Super Bowl contenders. Is there any room for a third? Probably not, but it should be fun to watch.
The Raiders 2019 season will only have two paths. Either is going to be a huge surprise, or it’s going to be a complete train wreck.
The combination of Gruden, Richie Incognito and Vontaze Burfict is quite the handful. The good news for us is HBO’s Hard Knocks will be there to tape it all.

The expectations about the Oakland Raiders are not encouraging. MyBookie.ag listed the Raiders to have a regular-season win total betting odds of 6 wins during 2019.
The Raiders made some exciting moves, adding veterans with some history in this league. The roster still has too many holes to think this team can make something out of this season.
Oakland is not a seven-win team by any stretch.
Oakland Raiders 2019 Roster Changes
The Raiders were a team that was expected to make moves in the offseason, and they did. They had plenty of cap room, and they were eager to use it.
The Raiders bulked up the wideouts department. Besides Brown, they brought Tyrell Williams from Los Angeles and JJ Nelson from Arizona.
Strengthened Both Offensive & Defensive Line
The team also added OT Trent Brown, who recently won the Super Bowl with the New England Patriots last season. OT Richie Incognito will also be part of the offensive line; although he’s suspended for the first two games of the season.
On the defensive side, they brought in the controversial LB Vontaze Burfict and signed safety Lamarcus Joyner from the Rams.
Oakland Raiders 2019 NFL Draft
The Raiders had four picks in the first 40 spots of the 2019 NFL Draft, including three in the first round.
Oakland selected DE Clelin Ferrell with the fourth overall pick, which was a move that not many liked or understood. The rest of the picks were good, adding a talent like RB Josh Jacobs, and safety Johnathan Abram.
The Raiders selected nine players in the draft; six were defensive players and three play offense.
2019 Oakland Raiders Schedule Analysis
Oakland will face five teams that made the playoffs last season, including the Indianapolis Colts, Chicago Bears, and Houston Texans. Not to mention the Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers twice.
The Raiders will play four of those opponents within the first seven games of the season.
Five Straight Games On The Road
Also, the Raiders will technically be on the road for five straight games between September and October, which is brutal.
They have four away games in Minnesota, Indianapolis, Green Bay, and Houston. In between those meetings, there is a home game against the Bears, but it’s in London.
