New Orleans Saints 24-34 Las Vegas Raiders: First TDs in new Raiders stadium

Raiders open Allegiant Stadium with victory

The Las Vegas Raiders, formerly known as the Oakland Raiders, have officially kicked off their NFL adventure.

The Raiders took on the New Orleans Saints at the newly-unveiled Allegiant Stadium on Monday, September 21, 2020.

However, it was their opponents who stole a piece of history, with Saints being the first to score in the stadium.

The Saints went ahead to take a 3-0 lead in the first quarter and added the first-ever touchdown in Allegiant Stadium history.

It was running back Alvin Kamara who found the end zone early on in the first half.

The $2billion venue in the desert had to hold its first event following the Raiders move from Oakland without fans because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The stadium was christened by The Killers, who played a half-time show to a near-deserted facility that would usually play host to 65,000.
