By DAVID ZIMMERMAN March 13, 2019 8:04:17The Raiders will soon be in the same building as the New York Yankees, but the two franchises aren’t close.
It’s the Raiders’ fourth game in Manhattan since the franchise relocated from Las Vegas to Oakland in 2008.
The Raiders have yet to play in the Bronx since they moved to Las Vegas in 2012.
The team will be playing in the Big Apple on Thursday night against the New England Patriots, and their first game in the city since the Raiders moved to Los Angeles in 1982.
The teams first meeting, Dec. 13, 2017, was a 19-13 win for the Raiders.
After the Raiders returned home for a week, they faced off with the San Francisco 49ers on Nov. 23.
The game was an embarrassing mess in San Francisco, and the 49ers won 24-13.
That was a first-round playoff loss for the team.
Oakland went 2-13 in the first season of the new stadium.
It was a loss that hurt the team as the Raiders went to a 1-8 start this season.
In 2018, the Raiders finished 6-10, and they finished at 1-7 with a bye in the second season of Oakland.
Oakland has been in the playoff hunt for the past few years, and while the Raiders haven’t made the playoffs since 2010, they have made it to the postseason in five of the past six seasons.
