Oakland Raiders 2015 Schedule: Win-Loss Predictions for Every Game

Are you ready for some football? Well, not quite yet but let’s get prepared with the official release of the NFL schedule, per NFL.com. Realistically, the Oakland Raiders are looking at an 8-8 season.

Playoff contenders aren’t cultivated overnight, but Raider Nation will see significant progress from the Silver and Black. Nonetheless, the franchise is still a season away from making a legitimate playoff push.

The basis of these predictions were made with a major concern for the Raiders secondary. The starting cornerbacks are a major concern heading into the season. Teams with explosive wide receivers capable of going over the top or dominating with physicality have the advantage over the defense. 

On a positive note, teams that struggle to move the ball vertically match up poorly against the Raiders.

Jack Del Rio's defensive expertise and the use high draft picks on defensive prospects will hold more running backs under 100 rushing yards than in recent history.

Keep in mind rosters aren’t set and early predictions are subject to change.

Here are the predictions for all 16 games this season. The Raiders' bye week is Week 6.
