The New Orleans Saints have an uber-talented roster, and they should feel confident as they travel to Las Vegas for their Week 2 matchup with the Raiders.

Coming off a strong Week 1 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the New Orleans Saints will head to the renown Las Vegas for Week 2. Sadly, they likely won’t stay their long enough or be permitted to live the Vegas life for a few days.

What they will get to do is open the newly-finished Allegiant Stadium. A beautiful masterpiece right near the Vegas strip, this was supposed to be a booming opening of two powerhouses. However, Covid-19 put a damper on that.

Both teams will enter the game 1-0. The Raiders will have a chance to prove their doubters wrong, but they’ll be going against one of the league’s most talented teams. The Saints, on both sides of the ball, are elite.

While the Raiders did win their first matchup of the season, it was against the Panthers, a team that’ll likely finish at the bottom of the NFC South. They will get their first real challenge in Week 2 despite not having fans present.

The Saints should come away from Vegas with a win. That said, let’s dive into three reasons why that will be the case.
