The Oakland Raiders will try to make it to the postseason for a second straight season in 2017, and it all starts against the Tennessee Titans.

Derek Carr figures to be back under center (hopefully literally, and not the pistol formation) come Sept. 10 when his squad travels to Tennessee for the season opener.

The Raiders finished last season with a 12-4 record, good for a second-place finish in the AFC West behind the Kansas City Chiefs. Oakland did make the playoffs, though, serving as a wild card team.

While the Raiders appeared to be a genuine Super Bowl contender toward the end of the regular season, a season-ending leg injury to Carr derailed what hopes the silver and black had of hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. The team was ousted from the playoffs in the wild card round, losing to the Houston Texans — who were also down a starting quarterback — by a score of 27-14.
