Jon Gruden and the Las Vegas Raiders entered their first home game at Allegiant Stadium as huge underdogs against the New Orleans Saints.
New Orleans was coming off a big win over Tom Brady and the Buccaneers in its opener and looks to be a legit Super Bowl contender in the NFC. While Vegas defeated the Carolina Panthers in Week 1, no one really gave the team much of a chance.
Enter into the equation the magic of Las Vegas. That seemed to come into play as the Raiders came back from a 10-0 early deficit to win by the score of 34-24. It included a fullback scoring the team’s first ever touchdown in Las Vegas and just a great overall performance from Gruden’s squad.
Now 2-0 on the season following their shocking win on “Monday Night Football,” these Raiders were the talk of the NFL world.
