The Las Vegas Raiders started their 2021 NFL campaign off with a bang! The Silver and Black were finally able to play a game in front of their diehard fans at Allegiant Stadium for the first time and put on a show against Lamar Jackson and the visiting Baltimore Ravens.
The Raiders were able to pull off a thrilling overtime victory against the favored Ravens on the big stage of Monday Night Football, which sparked a classic reaction from comedian Frank Caliendo doing his flawless impression of head coach Jon Gruden.

Caliendo is famous for his spot-on impressions of legendary Raiders coach John Madden, former President George W. Bush and Gruden. Of course, there are a lot more impressions he does, but these three are unmatched, especially considering two of them have Raiders ties.
With the Raiders getting the season started with an incredible overtime win, Caliendo’s impression of Gruden could become a weekly thing if the Silver and Black can continue to win games every week.
In Week 2, the Raiders will hit the road for the first time this season to face Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers. It will be the second straight AFC North opponent for Las Vegas, and a tough matchup after Mike Tomlin’s squad took down the Buffalo Bills in Week 1.
