Head Coach: Jon Gruden
The Oakland Raiders are based in Oakland, California, and competes in the NFL as a part of the American Football Conference (AFC) West division. Founded on January 1960, they opened their first season in the NFL on September 1960, as a member of the American Football League (AFL).
Included in the Raiders’ notable accomplishments are the following: 15 division titles (3 AFL and 12 NFL), four AFC Championships (1976, 1980, 1983, and 2002), one AFL Championship (1967), and three Super Bowl Championships (XI, XV, and XVII). At the end of the 2017 season, the Raiders completed a lifetime regular season record of 462 wins, 411 losses, and 11 ties. Currently, their lifetime playoff record sits at 25 wins and 19 losses.
The team moved to Oakland to play in Los Angeles, California from 1982 to 1994 before heading back to Oakland in 1995. However, the NFL team owners voted to approve the Raiders’ file to move to Las Vegas, Nevada. The Raiders plan to stay in Oakland through 2018 and 2019 and relocate to Las Vegas afterward.
