Here is Alec Ingold scoring the Raiders’ first touchdown in Las Vegas.
The Silver and Black were down 10-0 to the visiting New Orleans Saints on Monday Night Football in Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had issues with the Saints’ pass rush, but he persevered on this drive, connecting with his fullback Ingold on a goal-to-go scenario to give the Raiders their very first touchdown in Las Vegas. Was it Spider 2 Y Banana?
The Las Vegas Raiders’ offense is a multi-pronged approach to success.
In head coach Jon Gruden’s third year back with the Raiders, he has re-established an offensive identity this team can be proud of. It is pretty simple really, as the Raiders use the strong running game of Josh Jacobs to open up the pass for Carr to make plays through the air. With a bevy of receivers, it was only a matter of time before he connected with one for six at home tonight.
Though the Raiders will likely be looking up at the Kansas City Chiefs in the AFC West standings throughout the season, they have the offensive personnel to be one of the seven best teams in the AFC. If the Denver Broncos collapse out of the gate due to injury and if Los Angeles Chargers head coach Anthony Lynn continues to not believe in Justin Herbert, the Raiders can finish second.
It’s great to see the Raiders have their own stadium, as well as get its first Las Vegas touchdown.
