Las Vegas fans will finally have their first glimpse of NFL regular season action in their city.
The Raiders debuted in their new city last season, but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, they were unable to allow fans into Allegiant Stadium to watch the games.
Their debut won’t come easy. They’ll face the Ravens and annual MVP candidate Lamar Jackson in the 2021 opener on Monday. The Raiders might have just missed the postseason in 2020, but the Ravens were in the playoffs for the third straight year. They reached the Divisional Round for the second consecutive season before losing to the Bills 17-3.
The Ravens have dominated the all-time series against the Raiders. Along with winning each of the past two matchups, Baltimore is an all-time 9-3 against the Raiders.
