The 2001 Oakland Raiders season was the club’s 42nd season, and 32nd in the National Football League. The club acquired wide receiver Jerry Rice through free agency. Rice excelled with his new team, catching 83 passes for 1,139 yards and 9 touchdowns. None of the team's six regular-season losses and seven total losses were by more than a touchdown. The Raiders would qualify for the postseason, but lost to the eventual Super Bowl Champion New England Patriots in a divisional playoff game. The loss was controversial; with a minute and 43 seconds remaining in the fourth quarter and the Raiders winning 13-10, cornerback Charles Woodson appeared to force a fumble on Patriots quarterback Tom Brady that was recovered by the Raiders, but the play was ruled an incomplete pass. The Patriots tied the game in the ensuing drive and then won in overtime.

It would be head coach Jon Gruden's final season with Oakland, who was traded to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in exchange for Tampa Bay's first-round draft picks in 2002 and 2003, their second-round draft picks in 2004 and 2005, and $8 million. The Raiders faced Gruden in the Super Bowl the next year.
