KTNV (LAS VEGAS) — The air is buzzing in Las Vegas as the Raiders have punched their ticket to the NFL playoffs for the first time since the 2016 season. It was a game that brought all kinds of emotions out.

Raiders fan Gerred Faisca said, "I felt like a little girl. Giddy but stressful as always. Raiders always stress me out but we pulled it off!”

From navigating through adversity off the field to the overtime thrillers and walk-off finishes, the Raiders have done the improbable, all while capturing the hearts of local fans.

“For it to be my first NFL game I didn’t even know what to expect. It was really overwhelming. I’ve been to VGK games and the atmosphere in Allegiant was ten times more intense," said Jan Dale.

Chelsea Faisca also added, “to feel that intensity from the entire stadium, It was really overwhelming but it was nice. You kinda feed off of that energy.”

As the Raiders are in even more control of their destiny now, they head to Cincinnati to take on the Bengals with the entire city of Las Vegas betting on the silver and black.

The kickoff for Saturday's game is set for 1:30 p.m.
