Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. The Oakland Raiders are a professional American football team based in Oakland, California. They currently play in the Western Division of the American Football Conference in the National Football League The Raiders began play in the American Football League in 1960 and joined the NFL in the AFL-NFL merger of 1970. The Raiders were formed in 1960, taking a spot in the newly formed AFL that had been vacated when the yet-unnamed Minneapolis franchise accepted an offer to join the established NFL instead of the AFL. The 1976 Oakland Raiders season finally achieved the ultimate goal of every NFL franchise: winning the Super Bowl. After posting a 13-1 regular season record and winning their sixth AFC West championship in seven seasons, the Raiders rolled to victories against the New England Patriots and Pittsburgh Steelers to reach their second Super Bowl appearance. Then on January 11, 1977 at the Rose Bowl Stadium, the Raiders won Super Bowl XI by defeating the Minnesota Vikings 32-14.show more
