What to watch for in the Saints vs. Raiders Monday Night Football game:

After essentially running the team through 2019 Offensive Player of the Year Michael Thomas a year ago, the New Orleans Saints need to adjust to life without their star. He’s sidelined for this matchup with the Las Vegas Raiders with an ankle injury that could keep him out for multiple weeks. This makes wideout Emmanuel Sanders, who signed with New Orleans in the offseason, all the more important for this team’s outlook.

This veteran Saints defense looked great against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week One. They’ll provide a great test for sophomore running back Josh Jacobs — One of the most promising young players in the sport. New Orleans allowed just 3.3 yards per carry to a dynamic Bucs backfield that boasts more versatility and creativity than the Raiders.

Jacobs buried the Carolina Panthers’ young defense in Week One with 139 yards from scrimmage and three touchdowns. The 22-year-old continues to show promise, but now he has to prove it against a defensive juggernaut in the Saints.

Two-time Pro Bowler Marshon Lattimore, a cornerback from Ohio State, dominated his matchup against star receiver Mike Evans just a week ago. Whichever Raiders receiver draws his coverage is going to have a long night matched up against a physically imposing veteran.

Even though there’s a clear favorite in this one, anything can happen on Monday Night Football — Especially in the Raiders’ home opener in their new city.
