The Raiders are 0-2 and are coming off a 30-14 loss at home to the Houston Texans.
They face the Patriots in New England on Sunday, followed by a trip to London to face the Dolphins.
Following the Week 5 bye, Oakland hosts the Chargers (who just beat the Seahawks) and Cardinals (who are 2-0).
Then come road games at Cleveland (who just beat the Saints) and Seattle.
Games 9 and 10 are vs. Denver and at San Diego.
In summation: the schedule doesn't look easy.
On Wednesday's Yahoo SportsTalk Live Blitz, Jim Kozimor presented the following question: "Over/Under: 2.5 wins for Raiders this season?
Mark Purdy: "I say it's over. They look really horrible now, but as the season goes on other teams have injuries. It's really hard for an NFL not to get at least three wins ... If you look at this Raiders roster, they still have enough real NFL players on there that just by accident they should win three or four games ... I'll take the Raiders, over."
Dan Dibley: "It's over but it's barely. It's going to take a disinterested game against Denver in Week 17 to get it done ..."
Marcus Thompson: "You guys are missing this. They're going over but it's gonna be way over. I'm going with a whopping six wins for the Raiders. I feel like Derek Carr gets you six wins. Book it."
