This town is going to go absolutely nuclear when the Las Vegas Raiders officially open up shop in Allegiant Stadium next September, and since we love spectacle here in the Vegas Valley, howzabout this set of rumors:
- The Raiders might open the season as the featured game on Sunday Night Football. (There’s also talk of Thursday night, but that’s usually reserved for the defending Super Bowl champs.)
- Just to make things a little more spectacular, the opponent might feature the NFL’s All-Time leader in passing yards and touchdowns and his teammate who just broke the single-season record for receptions.
Obviously, nothing’s confirmed yet, but how fun would Raiders-Saints in primetime in Week One be?
To borrow the words of Bart Scott, can’t wait!
