The 2003 Oakland Raiders season was the teams's 44th, and 34th in the National Football League. The Raiders entered 2003 as defending AFC Champions, but they were unable to improve upon their previous season's output of 11–5, instead winning only four games.[1]

Quarterback Rich Gannon who had been the league MVP the previous season, injured his shoulder in Week Seven, and was put on injured reserve for the reminder of the season. He was replaced by Marques Tuiasosopo and Rick Mirer.

The team had a five game losing streak in the middle of the season where they lost seven games by a touchdown or less. Their 4–12 record tied them with the Chargers, Giants, and Cardinals as the worst team in football in 2003. For this, Raiders owner Al Davis fired head coach Bill Callahan and replaced him with Norv Turner.
