Baltimore @ Las Vegas
Last Season Records: Las Vegas 8-8; Baltimore 11-5
What to Know
The Baltimore Ravens and the Las Vegas Raiders are opening their 2021 seasons against one another at 8:15 p.m. ET on Monday at Allegiant Stadium. Baltimore is coming off of an 11-5 season with hopes of advancing further than the second round of the playoffs, where they were eliminated by the Buffalo Bills 17-3. On the other hand, Las Vegas missed the playoffs altogether last season and is looking forward to a clean start.
A pair of last-season defensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Ravens were third best in touchdowns allowed, finishing the 2020 season giving up only 34. Less enviably, Las Vegas was third worst when it came to rushing touchdowns allowed last season, with the squad giving up 24 overall. The good news for Las Vegas, of course, is that these forces working against them might not carry over into the new season.
Baltimore is the favorite in this one, with an expected 4.5-point margin of victory. A win is hardly a sure thing, especially this early in the season, so expect a good game.
