Darren McFaddenThe Raiders may be having a "rebuilding" year whether they know it or not. They finished the 2012 season with a 4-12 record, and only had wins over three teams, granted they beat Kansas City twice. 

I asked my crystal ball to show me how the Raiders' season would end this year, and this is what it showed me.

Week 1: Raiders @ Colts

The season opener for the Raiders will not start the year off the way the team is hoping. Luck will have a big day and will leave the Raiders asking what happened. Prediction: Colts 31, Raiders 7

Week 2: Jags @ Raiders

Now this is going to be an interesting game, being as the Jags are one of the three teams the Raiders managed to beat last season. I do think it will be a close game, and the Raiders will manage to win this one. Prediction: Raiders 17, Jags 14

Week 3: Raiders @ Broncos

The Raiders will go into Denver feeling good about themselves as they face their old rivals. Sadly, the Broncos are on another level from Oakland this year, and will dominate them in all aspects of the game. Look for Manning and company to be merciless. Prediction: Broncos 42, Raiders 7

Week 4: Redskins @ Raiders

The one good thing to come from the beating they took last year is the teams collective stinging pride. It will motivate them to come back determined against the Redskins, allowing them to get another much needed win. Prediction: Raiders 21, Redskins 17

Week 5: Chargers @ Raiders

The Raiders are in a state of disarray, and so are the Chargers. This will be a low scoring game and neither team will look overly impressive. Prediction: Chargers 10, Raiders 7

Week 6: Raiders @ Chiefs

Things do look bleak for the Raiders this year, sadly they look even worse for the Chiefs. The Raiders should consider this to be their easy game. Prediction: Raiders 24, Chiefs 6

Week 7: Bye Week

Week 8: Steelers @ Raiders

Arguably the two teams with the best fans square off in Week 8, but unfortunately for the Raiders, the Nation can't suit up and help them fend off the Steelers. Prediction: Steelers 31, Raiders 14
