Year 1 of Jon Gruden's second reign in Oakland brought a lot of excitement but it didn't translate to wins on the field.
The Raiders traded Khalil Mack and Amari Cooper for a host of draft picks that should help them rebuild the roster into a contender under Gruden. After going 4-12 in 2018, the climb back toward the playoffs begins in 2019 when the Raiders' offense will be much more potent thanks to the addition of Antonio Brown and Tyrell Williams.
Every year, one or two teams surprises and make a leap from cellar-dweller to playoff contender, and the Raiders certainly have the makeup of a team that could do that.
With the 2019 schedule having been released, let's go game-by-game and see how the Silver and Black will fare this season.
