Saints vs Raiders channel, start time

Saints vs Raiders begins at 8:15 p.m. ET / 5:15 p.m. PT today (Monday, September 21st).
It's being broadcast on ESPN, closing out Week 2 with Monday Night Football.

It's time for the Monday Night Football Saints vs Raiders live stream, delivering a key matchup of Week 2 of the 2020 NFL season. Both teams are at 1-0 after winning their opening games and are looking to build on that promising start.

The Raiders will host at their shiny new stadium in Las Vegas, but with few fans in attendance due to the coronavirus pandemic. So, no, the Raiders may not get that much of a home field advantage, but it's still better than playing at the rundown Oakland Coliseum.

The Raiders won their Week 1 game against the Panthers thanks to a great performance by running back Josh Jacobs, who rushed for 93 yards and three touchdowns. But their defense looked vulnerable. Unless they tighten it up, they'll have a tough time against New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees. 

Meanwhile, the Saints' defense is among the strongest in the league. They held the Tamba Bay to 3.3 yards last week and spoiled Tom Brady's debut as a Buccaneer. On offense, Brees may be showing his age and All-Pro wide receiver Michael Thomas is out with an ankle injury, but New Orleans is still a tough team to beat. Who dat!

Here's everything you need to know about how to watch the Saints vs Raiders game.

How to watch Saints vs Raiders live streams with a VPN

Football fans, if for some reason you've had to leave your own "bubble" — or you've been hit by a dreaded local blackout — and you can't watch the Saints vs Raiders live streams you want, you don't have to miss the game. With a virtual private network, or VPN, you can appear to be surfing the web from your home town (or somewhere that blackouts won't hit), and access the same streaming services you already paid for. 

Not sure which VPN is right for you? We've tested many different services and our pick for the best VPN overall is ExpressVPN. ExpressVPN offers superb speeds and excellent customer service, and IPVanish's low pricing is shocking.

Saints vs Raiders live streams in the US

In the U.S., the Saints vs Raiders game kicks off today (Monday, Sept. 21) at 8:15 p.m. ET / 5:15 p.m. PT. It's on ESPN, which is included on most cable TV packages and is available on two live TV services, fuboTV and Sling TV

Of the two, football fans will probably want fuboTV, as it has all five of the main channels you'll want: CBS, NBC, Fox, ESPN and the NFL Network. That's why it's one of the best streaming services.

Sling may get you this game, but it doesn't include CBS (nor NFL RedZone). It's a case of "you get what you pay for" since Sling Orange & Blue (which you'd need to get ESPN, FOX and NBC) costs $45 per month, while the Fubo TV Standard package gives you all of the above, for $59.99 per month.

Fubo.TV is one of the best streaming services that offers NBC and it's our top pick for watching all of the 2020 NFL live streams, Fubo has all of the right broadcast networks and the two cable channels you'll need to get your football fix. Who needs cable? Not Fubo subscribers. It's got a 7-day free trial so you don't need to pay up front.View Deal

Sling TV is an affordable live TV service with some of the channels that football fans want, providing a middle ground. The $45 per month Sling Orange + Blue package has ESPN for this game, as well as local Fox and NBC affiliates.View Deal
