New Orleans Saints at Las Vegas Raiders: How to watch Week 2
By Brad Weiss
The Las Vegas Raiders play host to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night, and here is how you can watch all of the action in Week 2.
The Las Vegas Raiders and New Orleans Saints are both coming off Week 1 victories, and both went through NFC South teams to do it. The Saints were able to take care of Tom Brady and the new-look Tampa Bay Buccaneers at home, while the Raiders went on the road and beat the Carolina Panthers by a score of 34-30.
In that game, star running back Josh Jacobs rushed for three scores and accounted for nearly 150 all-purpose yards. The Silver and Black are going to need another effort like that on Monday, as they will christen their new stadium in style on Monday Night Football against future Hall of Famer Drew Brees and his Saints.
New Orleans is once again one of the teams to beat in the NFC, and in Week 1, they had no problem dismantling the Buccaneers. This will be a good, early-season test for the Raiders young secondary, one that saw rookie Damon Arnette struggle in his first NFL start on Sunday.

While Michael Thomas has not officially been ruled out for the Week 2 matchup, all signs are pointing to him missing a few weeks due to an ankle injury. That makes the Raiders defensive backfield’s job a bit easier on Monday night, but as we have seen throughout his career, Saints quarterback Drew Brees can hurt you in so many ways.
Look for the Raiders to pound the ball with Jacobs in this one, as the plan will be to keep Brees and this Saints offense off the field. If the Raiders can do that, they have a chance, but if they get into a shootout, it is going to be very hard to go point-for-point with the Saints under the bright lights of Monday Night Football.
