The Raiders will open on the road for the 15th time in 18 seasons, and the Rams will make four prime-time television appearances, including a season-ending Sunday night game at San Francisco, according to the 1987 National Football League schedule released Tuesday.
Three of the Rams' games will be played on Monday nights: Oct. 26 at Cleveland, Nov. 23 at Washington and Dec. 21 against Dallas at Anaheim Stadium. The 5 p.m. game Dec. 27 at Candlestick Park will be shown by ESPN, which recently acquired the rights to some NFL games.
The game with the 49ers will be a rematch of last season's regular-season finale. San Francisco won that one, 24-14, for the NFC Western Division title, depriving the Rams, who had had a 1 1/2-game lead with two games remaining.
Other highlights on the schedule include a Nov. 29 home game against Tampa Bay, which recently signed quarterback Vinny Testaverde, the Heisman Trophy winner from the University of Miami.
