Las Vegas Raiders vs. Baltimore Ravens, first Monday Night Football of the season with high expectations to see the way both teams are doing, especially the Ravens after some problems with Lamar Jackson and his personal life.
Date: Monday, September 13, 2021.
Time: 8:15 PM (ET)
Location: Allegiant Stadium, Las Vegas, Nevada.
Las Vegas Raiders: New city and new home.
The Las Vegas Raiders want to win the first home game of the season and have a better result than in 2020 with eight wins and eight losses. They finished second in the AFC West.
The Raiders have a tough rival in the division called the Kansas City Chiefs. They know that winning the division is difficult against Patrick Mahomes, but if the team maintains a good record things could be beneficial in the wildcard round.
Derek Carr threw a total of 348 passes completed in 2020 for 67.3% effectiveness, 4103 pass yards, 27 touchdowns and 9 interceptions. Carr has been playing for the Raiders for almost 7 years and his best season with the team was in 2016 at 12-3-0.
Baltimore Ravens: Favorites overall.
The Ravens land in Las Vegas with only one goal: Win to prove they are big favorites this season. They played near perfect in 2020 but the biggest loss of that season was against the Bills in the divisional round at home.
In 2020, the Ravens were scoring an average of 24 rushing touchdowns for 3,071 rush yards, 257/406 passes completed for 2,739 yards and 27 touchdowns. The defense allowed an average of 18.9 points per game as the second-best defense of the season in 2020.
Lamar Jackson was surrounded by legal problems in the last three months, things related to a copyright lawsuit, but in the end everything seems to be clear and Lamar Jackson can continue playing as a starting quarterback in the new season.
