The Oakland Raiders had an absolutely tragic season in 2011, both on the field and off. They'll now be gearing up for their first full season in decades without the guidance of late owner Al Davis. That 2012 journey will begin with their preseason opener on Monday, a nationally-televised game against old rivals the Dallas Cowboys at the O.co Coliseum in Oakland.
Can the Raiders begin what looks to be a rebuilding season on the right foot? Their opener against the Cowboys may give you more reasons to cheer than you might think: the latest NFL odds indicate that the homefield Raiders are slight 1.5-point favorites.
