What channel is Ravens vs. Raiders on and what is start time for Week 1 MNF

The Baltimore Ravens and Las Vegas Raiders face off in Week 1 of the 2021 NFL season. We break down how to watch the game, odds for the matchup, key injuries, and notable fantasy football start/sit considerations.

NFL: AFC Divisional Round-Baltimore Ravens at Buffalo Bills Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The lights will be bright on Monday in Sin City for the first Monday Night Football game of the season between the Baltimore Ravens and the Las Vegas Raiders.

Baltimore comes into this season off another playoff appearance but fell to the Buffalo Bills in the divisional round. QB Lamar Jackson and company will be looking to improve a passing attack that ranked last in the NFL in 2020. They’ll need to get marginally better there, especially now that RB1 JK Dobbins is out for the season with a knee injury.

The Raiders are still searching for their first playoff appearance under coach Jon Gruden, who is heading into his 4th season at the helm. Derek Carr will lead the offense with explosive weapons like tight end Darren Waller, running back Josh Jacobs and wideout Henry Ruggs. That splashy unit could be a ton of fun to watch this season if they put it all together.
