History: New Orleans Saints vs. Las Vegas Raiders
The Saints and Raiders all-time series is tied at 6-6-1. New Orleans currently has a four-game winning streak on Monday Night Football, having won each of their two meetings in 2018 and 2019. New Orleans has won the last three road contests over the Raiders dating back to 1997, all taking place in Oakland. Saints Head Coach Sean Payton served on the same offensive coaching staff with Raiders Head Coach Jon Gruden in Philadelphia in 1997, when Gruden was the Eagles offensive coordinator and Payton coached quarterbacks. The two coaches then faced off twice annually when Payton first took over the Saints and Gruden coached the Buccaneers from 2006-08 with the two splitting their six meetings. New Orleans has won 11 consecutive inter-conference contests, dating back to a 20-0 shutout over Miami in London's WembleyStadium on October 1, 2017.
