Just for clarity, 1st team = Our Schedule that week, second team is opponents schedule from previous week.

1) @ Oakland, N/A
2) vs.Tennessee, vs. New England
3) vs. Atlanta, vs. Denver
4) @ Kansas City, @ New Orleans
5) @ New Orleans, @ Green Bay
6) vs. Denver, @ New England
BYE
8) @ Cleveland, @ Indianapolis
9) vs. Kansas City, vs. Oakland
10) @Tampa Bay, @ Oakland
11) @ Denver, @ Carolina
12) vs. Baltimore, @ Pittsburgh
13) vs. Cincinnati, vs. Oakland
14) @ Pittsburgh, @ Baltimore
15) vs. Carolina, vs. Atlanta
16) @ New York, @ Tennessee
17) vs. Oakland, @ Carolina

Several things to note are:
1) We do not travel to a team who play 2 home games in a row
2) We play Denver (6), Baltimore (12) and Oakland (17) at home after they have travelled the week before, with our division rivals playing east coast teams.
3) The three legitimate play off teams we play in Baltimore, Pittsburgh and New Orleans all have tricky road games ahead against play off contenders.
4) With the AFC west up for grabs, the only unfavorable match up is our second road game in the space of two weeks against Denver (11).

In no way is this meant to be definitive, or 100% fool proof, no matter how hard we analyse, there are always unknowns that will factor in. This just an optimistic perspective on who we play and when.

Personally, if think our season needs to start in the Black Hole before the Raiders gain an 'identity'. Then, with two winnable home games afterward, a 3-0 start would be great to take to Arrowhead to boost our confidence.
I'm confused on week 5, shouldn't it be @new orleans,@kansas city?


4) @ Kansas City, @ New Orleans
5) @ New Orleans, @ Green Bay

I hate the 10am games. They are not fair to the West Coast teams. ALL games involving West Coast teams should start no earlier than 4pm Eastern Time
