Watch Patriots vs. Raiders: How to watch live stream, TV channel, NFL start time. The Las Vegas Raiders head East on a short week to take on Bill Belichick and the new-look New England Patriots in Week 3. Here is how to watch.
The Las Vegas Raiders have been one of the surprise teams of the early 2020 NFL season, beating the Carolina Panthers on the road in Week 1, and then dominating the New Orleans Saints in primetime in Week 2, a team many expect to challenge for a Super Bowl berth in the NFC. In Week 3, the Silver and Black make another trip to the East Coast, this time to take on the New England Patriots.
Since the Raiders got absolutely hosed during the “Tuck Rule” Game, these two franchises have been on opposite trajectories. Tom Brady went on to win five Super Bowl rings playing for New England, and the Raiders have been to the playoffs only two times since that fateful day in January of 2002.
Even today, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden gets fired up thinking about how that game went, and in Week 3, he will at least have a chance to get some revenge on Bill Belichick and his new-look Patriots. Sitting at 2-0, the Raiders have a chance to make another statement, and they appear to have the roster to do just that.

What to Know
The Las Vegas Raiders will head out on the road to face off against the New England Patriots at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Gillette Stadium. The Raiders should still be feeling good after a win, while New England will be looking to right the ship.
Las Vegas netted a 34-24 victory over the New Orleans Saints this past Monday. QB Derek Carr and TE Darren Waller were among the main playmakers for Las Vegas as the former passed for three TDs and 282 yards on 38 attempts and the latter caught 12 passes for one TD and 103 yards. Carr ended up with a passer rating of 120.70.
Meanwhile, New England scored first but ultimately less than the Seattle Seahawks in their matchup this past Sunday. New England was within striking distance but couldn’t close the gap as they fell 35-30 to Seattle. The contest was a 14-14 toss-up at halftime, but the Patriots were outplayed the rest of the way. The losing side was boosted by QB Cam Newton, who passed for one TD and 397 yards on 44 attempts in addition to rushing for two TDs and 47 yards. Newton’s longest connection was to WR Julian Edelman for 49 yards in the third quarter.
The Raiders are expected to lose this next one by 6. They might be worth taking a chance on against the spread, however, as they are currently on a two-game streak of ATS wins.
Las Vegas suffered a grim 33-8 defeat to the Patriots when the teams previously met three seasons ago. Can Las Vegas avenge their loss, or is history doomed to repeat itself? We’ll soon find out.
