The full NFL schedules are set to be released Wednesday at 5 p.m., but the league already has released one date for the Oakland Raiders.
On Oct. 6, the Raiders will meet up with their former star defensive end, Khalil Mack, when Oakland takes on the Chicago Bears in England at new Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Kickoff for the game will be at 10 a.m. in the Bay Area (6 p.m. in London).

The Raiders-Bears game will be the first NFL contest to be played in the stadium, which opened this month in north London. It is the home of the Premier League soccer team, Tottenham Hotspur.
The game will be one of four in the NFL scheduled for London. Tampa Bay will play Carolina on Oct. 13 at Hotspur Stadium. The Los Angeles Rams-Cincinnati game (Oct. 27) and Jacksonville-Houston game (Nov. 3) will be at Wembley Stadium.
The league returns to Mexico, after last season’s Chiefs-Rams game was moved to Los Angeles because of poor field conditions at Azteca Stadium. On Monday night Nov. 18, the Chiefs will play LA’s other team, the Chargers.
The Raiders’ matchup with the Bears will be the team’s second trip to London in two seasons. In 2018, the Raiders lost to the Seattle Seahawks at Wembley Stadium, 27-3.
