    Allegiant Stadium looks aesthetically impressive; inside and out. Although, I admit, I hate that Allegiant won the naming rights. Their logo kills me on a stadium like that. Unfortunate that there won’t be fans, but I’m looking forward to them debuting their new digs on MNF. They’ll always be Oakland to me... but I cannot deny complimenting a stadium when it looks good just like SoFi.

    Gonna be weird to see them play in Las Vegas tonight for the first time, but yeah that stadium looks pretty slick. And I agree, they will always be Oakland in my heart. Just like the 13 years they spent in LA.

    This has to be a make or break season for Derek Carr, right? He had a hot start to his career but he's been very disappointing the last couple seasons. His hesitation so far in the first quarter of this game has cost their offense opportunities to move down the field. I don't know how Gruden stays with him if he continues to plateau in performance.

    Heh, I eat my words. Good for Carr... and the defense.

    Well, so far, so good... And yes, they'll always be Oakland, no matter where they play. Although the Raiders playing in Vegas kinda makes some sense.

    It's good for the NFL when the Raiders are a good team. Hope they finally turn the corner and become c0ompetitive again.

    It has been a long time since the Silver and Black were 2-0. I really enjoyed watching that game last night. This seems like a totally different team early in the season.

    Huge win vs the Chiefs, MadBallers. These Raiders are fun to watch and they've added some very good talent in the recent drafts. That was a very impressive win vs KC.
