While some are probably expecting the Ravens to come away with the victory, there is an argument to be made for the Las Vegas Raiders to grab a shock win at Allegiant stadium. In fact, between the Ravens lacking J.K Dobbins and Lamar Jackson being more likely to go for the run to fill that void, maybe the Raiders can score in Week 1.
Below are a few other predictions from around the sports league.
According to Kyle Koster and Liam Mckeone, "This is the year Jon Gruden’s whole schtick has to start working. And it will. In Week 1, at least. A diverse and talented offense will chop up the Baltimore defense that always takes a little time to get going under John Harbaugh while the defense will do enough to limit Lamar Jackson’s abilities. . In what will surely be a rocking stadium for the Las Vegas football debut with fans, the Raiders will not disappoint."
However, according to Pete Fiutak of collegefooballnews.com, "Las Vegas has tried to build itself into a tough, hard-nosed team under Jon Gruden, but with the flash of the downfield passing game that makes the Raiders the Raiders. However, the offensive line is building itself back up to try getting more physical for a ground game that died for a long stretch over the second half of the season.
