NFL teams play divisional opponents twice each season. Each division matches up with one NFC division and one AFC division to play them as opponents. This alternates throughout the league each successive year. The remaining two games are decided by matching with two teams in the other AFC divisions that were ranked similarly. For example, the third ranked team in the AFC South versus the third ranked team in the AFC North.

Despite the NFL’s formula for varying schedules, the Raiders and Titans have faced each other ten times since the year 2000. The week one matchup will be the eleventh time in seventeen years. The Raiders have only hosted the game four of those eleven times.
