We are back, I'm Rob Sutton and welcome to coverage of this week 1 matchup between the Oakland Raiders and the New Orleans Saints from the Mercedes-Benz Superdome

Two teams on show here who might cause a surprise and reach the playoffs but they will have to do it through the wild card route. It's hard to see the Raiders topping the Broncos in the AFC West and same story for the Saints with the Panthers in the NFC South

Expecting this one to be a shoot out with Derek Carr going up against Drew Brees and with the stronger defence, I'm taking the Raiders to win this one.

NFL Game Pass crosses live to Louisiana just in time to see the 9/11 memorial ceremony which is taking place

Raiders have won the toss and have deferred.

Janikowski kicks us off, into the end zone for a touchback, Saints will start at the 25.

1st and 10, Saints: play action pass from Brees incomplete knocked down by Smith.

2nd and 10: Brees goes wide but Colston takes the catch out of bounds.

3rd and 10: FUMBLE!! Irvin forces the fumble off Brees and the Raiders have a takeaway off the third snap, what a start!!
