LAS VEGAS, NV (KXST) - The first full NFL season for the Raiders in Las Vegas will start on the road.

Your Raiders will open the season on Monday, September 13, in Charlotte to take on the new-look Carolina Panthers.

Week 2 brings the Raiders home for a Monday Night Football clash with the New Orleans Saints.   The game on September 21 will also mark the regular season debut for Allegiant Stadium.

Besides the Week 2 appearance on MNF, the Raiders will be featured in prime time three more times this season and all will be at home: 

Sunday Night Football: 10/25 vs Tampa Bay, 11/22 vs Kansas City.

Thursday Night Football: 12/16 vs. Los Angeles Chargers.

As in previous years, the NFL holds the ability after Week 5 to flex any Sunday afternoon game into Sunday Night Football.   Up to two of those games can happen between Week 5 and Week 10.

The league will decide later on what date the Raiders will play in Week 16, which is Christmas weekend.
