Week 1 will come to an end with a marquee matchup, as the Rams go north to take on Jon Gruden’s Raiders.
After spending nine seasons in the Monday Night Football broadcast booth, the first game of Jon Gruden’s second stint as Raiders’ head coach will be the night cap of the now traditional Monday night Week 1 doubleheader. The MNF booth has of course been redone too, with play-by-play man Sean McDonough going back to college football this year.
The Los Angeles Rams are coming into the Black Hole, with the league’s top-scoring offense from last year in tow. Sean McVay’s first year as head coach couldn’t have gone much better, but expectations are high for the Rams after a very active offseason.
Here’s how you can watch Monday night’s final game of Week 1, along with how you can find coverage focused on each team from our FanSided network.
