Times set for Raiders’ preseason schedule

Updated May 9, 2017 - 6:38 pm

OAKLAND, Calif. — A range of dates with inexact kickoff times was announced last month when the Raiders’ preseason schedule was released. On Tuesday, the specifics were finalized.

The Raiders will open their preseason Aug. 12 for a Saturday night game against the Arizona Cardinals in Glendale.

Geographically speaking, that’s about as close to Las Vegas as the Raiders will come in 2017, the four-plus hour commute roughly the same as their Dec. 31 season finale versus the Los Angeles Chargers in Carson, California.

Regular-season dates and times were announced last month (all times Pacific).
