The NFL released the full schedule for the upcoming season Thursday night.
The Raiders, who plan to move to Las Vegas in 2019 or 2020, play their home opener in Week 2 against the New York Jets on September 17.
Week 2 is all about AFC-NFC matchups and the NFC Championship rematch.
Then the next week they will fly to Oakland.
Another quality matchup that will take place at 1:00 pm - this time at Gillette Stadium, though, where the two teams met in the AFC's divisional round last season. Both holiday games are slated to start at 1 p.m. Does that feel different? Gang Green also plays a home game against the Patriots in week six, who they will also play to close out the season during a week 17 trip to Foxboro, Mass.

The teams played on Thursday night in 2015 at MetLife Stadium, with the Bills pulling out the 22-17 win.
