New Orleans Saints at Las Vegas Raiders: 3 Things to watch in Week 2
The Las Vegas Raiders christen their new stadium in Primetime in Week 2, as they welcome the New Orleans Saints to Allegiant Stadium.
There’s no better feeling heading into a Week 2 matchup then going into it 1-0. The Las Vegas Raiders, coming off a week 1 win against the Panthers, host the New Orleans Saints for the debut of their newly constructed Allegiant Stadium.
As the Saints come in to be the first opponent the Raiders face at home, Las Vegas is getting one of the more difficult teams on their schedule right out of the gate.
Facing Drew Brees and the potent Saints offense that includes the likes of Alvin Kamara, will be no easy task. With talent all over the field, on offense and defense, the Raiders have their work cut out for them in every facet of the game.
Last week we saw Teddy Bridgewater have quite the productive game against a young Raiders defense, albeit their concerns and focus being on containing Christian McCaffrey.
The matchup will be on center stage as they face off on Monday Night Football. There’s going to be plenty to talk about, plenty to debate, and plenty of things to consider as we go throughout this week leading up to this showdown. Here are my 3 things to watch for as the Silver and Black heads into the Week 2 battle against Drew Brees and the Saints.
