The Las Vegas Raiders kick off their 2021 preseason slate against the Seattle Seahawks, and here are three things to watch for.
The Las Vegas Raiders are fielding a newly retooled roster and staff with numerous changes throughout the offseason that have the team looking very different from a year prior. The results throughout training camp have been mixed, and the position battles at various spots are still heavily underway.
With so much change throughout the roster, the preseason will give the coaching staff the ability to truly vet and decide who should be starting Week 1 in the regular season. The Silver and Black kick off their regular season with a monster test in the Baltimore Ravens, who have become perennial playoff contenders with Lamar Jackson under center.
For now, the attention turns to the Seattle Seahawks, who likely will not be playing their stars, but will be a nice test for the younger Raiders. There is a lot to like about this team, and this is going to be the fans’ first opportunity to see if the Raiders pushed the right buttons this offseason.
With so much anticipation for the first game in Las Vegas with fans in attendance, we are going to layout three things to look for in tomorrow’s game.
