The Raiders will host the Los Angeles Rams during Week 1, which runs August 8-12.  In Week 3 (August 22-25), the Raiders will play the Green Bay Packers in a location to be determined.  The final preseason game for the Raiders will be on the road at Seattle on either August 29 or August 30.

Eight preseason games will be on national TV, with Denver and Atlanta kicking off the preseason Thursday, August 1, in the annual Hall of Fame Game from Canton, Ohio.  NBC will broadcast the 5 p.m. PT kickoff. 

The NFL Network will show every preseason game.  Specific times and dates for the rest of the preseason will be released later in the offseason.
