The 1975 Oakland Raiders season was the team’s 16th season, and 6th in the National Football League.

The 1975 season would be George Blanda’s final season in the NFL. Blanda retired with two significant records: the most seasons in American professional football (26), and most games played (340).[1]

Opposing quarterbacks had a passer-rating of 37.2 against Oakland in 1975, the second-lowest total of the Super Bowl era.[2]
