Raiders will take on Chiefs on Christmas Day
The NFL schedule release will occur at 8:00 PM ET on Thursday and that’s when we will learn when the Raiders will play all 17 games this season. We already know the opponents and the location, but now we are just waiting on the time and network.
However, the league has announced a few more games early on Thursday morning, including the Christmas Day game which features the Raiders traveling to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs at 1:00 PM ET.

This is the only Christmas Day game with the rest of the league playing on the 23rd or the 24th. This game will also be simulcast on Nickelodeon, which will air a separate broadcast designed for kids.
The Chiefs won both meetings against the Raiders last season, but the game in Arrowhead was one of the most entertaining games of the season. The Raiders jumped out to a 17-0 lead, but the Chiefs came roaring back and were able to steal the game in the fourth quarter. The Raiders are hopeful they can have more success in Kansas City this time around.
Be sure to tune back into the Raiders Wire later today and this week for the full breakdown of the 2023 schedule for the Las Vegas Raiders.
