LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Las Vegas Raiders coach Jon Gruden and the team are preparing for an opening week road trip to Carolina to take on the Panthers.

Coach Gruden was asked Wednesday how prepared he feels going into the opening weekend matchup compared to last year, due to the current pandemic and without any preseason games.

“That's probably the question of the day… How do I feel? I've never seen Carolina on tape. So, I've got a few negative feelings about that. I wish I could see something, but I feel confident. Our coaches have done a great job,” Gruden said.

Gruden also credited the players, medical staff, and league officials for giving the teams a chance to play during the ongoing pandemic.
