Old school. New school. Those two clashed early during the Las Vegas Raiders’ first ever game at Allegiant Stadium Monday night against the New Orleans Saints.
Stud Saints running back Alvin Kamara scored the first ever NFL touchdown in Las Vegas, a one-yard scamper in the first quarter.
Showing us how old school he is, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden drew up a pass play from Derek Carr to fullback Alec Ingold for the team’s first ever touchdown in Las Vegas. That’s not a typo. It’s going to be a pretty awesome trivia question in about two decades.
To be fair, Ingold was a darn good lead blocker for Josh Jacobs as a rookie last season. However, he entered Monday’s game having recorded six catches in 17 career games. In fact, odds were 16-to-1 that Ingold would be the first Raiders player to score in Vegas.
Those watching the game had some pretty awesome reactions to Ingold etching his name in Raiders history.
