LAS VEGAS (AP) — Derek Carr threw three touchdown passes and the Raiders gave their new fans in Las Vegas plenty to celebrate even if they weren’t allowed in the stadium by beating the New Orleans Saints 34-24. The new $2 billion stadium held its first event following the Raiders’ move from Oakland without any fans because of the COVID-19 pandemic. That was one of the few things that didn’t go right for the Raiders, who opened the season with two straight wins for the fourth time in the past 25 seasons. Alvin Kamara ran for 2 TDs for New Orleans.
