The New Orleans Saints will square off with the Las Vegas Raiders in their first road game of the 2020 NFL season on Monday Night Football.

It will be the first game the Saints will play without star wide receiver Michael Thomas, who is out with a high ankle injury he suffered late in the fourth quarter of last week's season-opening win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Meanwhile, the Saints defense will have their hands full containing Raiders running back Josh Jacob to continue their 44-game streak of holding opposing running backs to less than 100 yards.

The game will also serve as a homecoming, of sorts, for Saints tight end Jared Cook and running back Latavius Murray, who both played for the Raiders when they were in Oakland.



THE GAME

When: Monday, Sept. 21 (7:15 p.m. CT)

Series record: Series tied, 6-6-1

Raiders in 2019: 7-9, missed playoffs

Re: Saints @ Raiders Game Day Thread

Bounce back for Drew?

Drew Brees hasn't thrown for 300 yards in either of his last four games. The last time he's had a streak like that was towards the end of the 2018 season when the Saints still found a way to go 3-1 during that stretch. He threw for just 160 yards last week. That's the lowest he's had in a full game since throwing for 127 in a loss to the Cowboys in 2018. If the Saints are to reach their ultimate goal, getting No. 9 back on track will be key.

Are you ready for some football

This will be the Saints' 45th time playing on Monday night. They are 22-22 in those games, including a pair of Monday victories in the Dome last season against the Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts. They have played just 11 Monday night games on the road, going 5-6. The Saints are 16-7 in Monday night games in the Sean Payton-Drew Brees era, including a 5-2 record on the road.

The streak

We may as well keep talking about the streak until it ends. The Saints have now gone 44 straight games without allowing an opposing back to eclipse 100 yards. Tampa Bay's Ronald Jones was limited to 66 yards in the season opener. Now the Saints have to slow down Josh Jacobs, who had 93 yards in last week's game victory over the Carolina Panthers.

Raider return

Jared Cook and Latavius Murray will be facing their former team. Cook played with the Raiders in 2017 and 2018 and had the most productive season of his now 12-year career in his second year there. Murray played with the Raiders from 2014-2016 and also had his best season there, eclipsing the 1,000-yard mark for the only time in his career in 2015. The play of those two could be key, expecially in Thomas' absence.

Re: Saints @ Raiders Game Day Thread

If defense continues their dominant play and the offense gets back in rhythm we should walk away with this game. Oh yes, I didn't even mention the NFL's best special teams in New Orleans. If we hit on all cylinders the raiders are going to have a long day!
