The Las Vegas Raiders have made a slew of additions over the offseason as they prepare to compete in a tough AFC West Division. It's shaping up to be a tough 2022 NFL season for the 'Black and Silver,' though, with Las Vegas owning the fourth-toughest schedule, according to ESPN's Mike Clay.

It isn't all gloom for the Raiders. Even though their schedule is full of potential contenders, several of the games are more than winnable. Being victorious in those matchups will go a long way in helping Las Vegas achieve its goal.

Here's a look at the three easiest games on the Raiders' schedule in 2022.

Las Vegas Raiders Schedule 2022

1. @ Jacksonville Jaguars

One team that the Raiders should have success over is the Jacksonville Jaguars. Yes, the Jaguars have made several improvements over the last few months, but FanDuel Sportsbook is currently favoring them to win six or fewer games. Even with the improvements they made, the Jaguars' offense is likely no match for the Raiders, who have three elite pass-catching options. At the end of the day, if the Raiders don't walk out of Jacksonville with the victory, something would seriously be wrong.

2. vs. Houston Texans

With the Raiders facing the AFC South in 2022, they also have the pleasure of going up against the lowly Houston Texans. The 2021 campaign saw the Texans finish third-worst for points scored and that's a trend that could easily continue after making minimal additions on offense. Several experts have the Texans as one of the worst teams ahead of next season and the Raiders will likely be heavy home betting favorites against them. There really isn't a comparison between the two teams when it comes to talent and a loss to Houston would be inexcusable on Las Vegas' part.

3. @ Seattle Seahawks

Road matchups can be tough, but that shouldn't be the case when the Raiders visit the Seattle Seahawks. There's just no telling how Drew Lock will perform as Seattle's No. 1 quarterback and it's hard to like the Seahawks' offense just based on his recent history. Meanwhile, the Raiders are also projected to have one of the best offenses in the league in 2022 and will have a great chance to display it against the Seahawks, who surrendered 25-plus points in their final three games to close out the 2021 season. Needless to say, this matchup has the makings to be a Raiders' blowout victory.
