Both the Oakland Raiders and New Orleans Saints finished 7-9 in 2015, but that won’t make their 2016 regular season opener any less interesting.
When the Raiders play in the Big Easy on the first NFL Sunday of the year, Oakland quarterback Derek Carr will start his mission of improving every football analyst’s favorite dark horse. The third-year pro already helped the Raiders finish far better than their 2014 record of 3-13, and Oakland’s promising offense gets to start its season against one of the worst defenses in the league.
But the Saints’ offense always poses a challenge with quarterback Drew Brees at the helm, so it should be quite a test for Oakland.
Here’s how you can watch Raiders vs. Saints online.
When: Sunday, Sept. 11, at 1 p.m. ET
