    Re: Raiders sched… I guess Pitts and Jax are not east of Denver?? Buy a map!
    Week 1 is also at Tennessee, definitely east of Denver, as is Kansas City.
    What the article says is:
    The Raiders will travel lighter. After the Sept. 12 season opener at Tennessee, they play five of eight at home, with no road games east of Denver.
    This was clearly a reference to an 8 game stretch, not the whole season as a whole. They actually have 4 road games east of Denver.
