The Las Vegas Raiders started life at their new home Allegiant Stadium with a 34-24 win over the New Orleans Saints on Monday.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr led the Raiders to a 2-0 start to begin the 2020 season as they played their first game at their new stadium, where no fans were in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Carr completed 28 of 38 passes for 282 yards and three touchdowns as the Raiders handed the Saints their first loss.

Darren Waller had 103 receiving yards on 12 receptions for the Raiders.

While the Saints made the better start, Drew Brees was unable to see them to victory, the veteran QB finishing with 312 yards, a TD and an interception on 26 of 38 completed passes.

Alvin Kamara rushed over for the game’s first touchdown in the first quarter as New Orleans opened up a 10-0 lead.

Carr led an 11-play, 63-yard drive that was completed by a short pass to Alec Ingold, but Brees and the Saints responded to restore their 10-point lead after a six-yard pass to Jared Cook.

But the Raiders would draw level before half-time, Carr leading another drive before a 15-yard pass to Zay Jones and a Daniel Carlson field goal making it 17-17.

Las Vegas pulled away in the second half, Carr and a wide open Waller combining before Jalen Richard’s brilliant 20-yard run made it 24 unanswered points for the Raiders.

Kamara gave the Saints hope before Carlson delivered a 54-yard field goal with just over a minute remaining to seal the win.
