The new-look Las Vegas Raiders hit the field on Sunday afternoon to battle it out with the Minnesota Vikings in preseason game No. 2.
Coming off a convincing victory against the Jacksonville Jaguars in the Hall of Fame Game, the Las Vegas Raiders will head home to Allegiant Stadium to take on the Minnesota Vikings in preseason game No. 2 for them. Due to the fact they played in the Hall of Fame Game, the Raiders will have four preseason games this year, so there is plenty of opportunities for guys to make this roster.
We have seen a number of position battles emerge this summer already, and against the Vikings, players will be fighting to move up the depth chart. The offensive line still is a work in progress, there are some battles going on at running back and wide receiver, and on the defense, we still need to find out who the starters will be on all three levels.
The Las Vegas Raiders are coming off a playoff season in 2021, and have rebuilt the roster in a positive way this offseason. We have still yet to see major additions play, like Davante Adams and Chandler Jones, and the likelihood is we may have to wait until the regular season for that to happen.

Minnesota made some wholesale changes within their roster as well this offseason, including at head coach, where Kevin O’Connell takes over for Mike Zimmer. Kirk Cousins returns as the team’s quarterback, but he is not likely to play, so you can expect plenty of Kellen Mond for the Vikings Sunday night.
As the second game of the preseason looms, the Raiders front office will soon have some decisions to make. Our latest 53-man prediction.
So here we go, preseason game No. 2 for the Silver and Black and plenty on the table in terms of storylines. This has been an exciting summer already, and on Sunday, we can expect the 53-man roster to begin to take shape even further.
