Raiders power past Saints in Allegiant Stadium debut (1 Viewer)


By John Hendrix | SI

LAS VEGAS -- The Saints had high hopes of spoiling the home opener for the Raiders in Allegiant Stadium, but it never happened. It was a night riddled with penalties for New Orleans, mixed in with some bad play on both sides of the ball. In the end, the team showed big signs of struggling and couldn't stop the bleeding.

Game Recap
The Saints started with the ball after losing the coin toss and came out pretty strong as opposed to how they started in Week 1. The running game looked smooth on their opening drive, as several big plays were made. However, New Orleans would have to settle for a Wil Lutz field goal after the 11-play, 62-yard drive came to a halt after Tre'Quan Smith could not secure the catch on 3rd down. Smith took a big hit from Erik Harris that negated it.

New Orleans would come up with a good stop of their own after the Raiders featured a good dose of Josh Jacobs to open their drive, getting a big sack from Malcolm Jenkins that resulted in a 13-yard loss. The Saints would take the ensuing possession and go 78 yards in 9 plays that was capped off by an Alvin Kamara touchdown. New Orleans was hot on the ground to start the game. There'd be some extra point drama, but eventually, it resulted in the Saints going up 10-0.
