Raiders Football

The Raiders have broken in their new Las Vegas home with a scrimmage for which they donned full game uniforms. Nevin Lawson registered the first tackle when he stopped Lynn Bowden Jr. on the opening kickoff, which was duplicated with another right afterward. Rico Gafford promptly took the second one to the house, ignoring whistles blowing the play dead once he darted past his teammates. The Raiders were hoping to make as big a splash as the NHL’s Vegas Golden Knights did when they made their debut in 2017 but because of the coronavirus pandemic the Raiders will play home games without fans. Their home opener is scheduled for Sept. 21 against the New Orleans Saints.
