Alec Ingold got the honors.

Las Vegas Raiders’ quarterback Derek Carr said all of the Raiders wanted to score the team’s first touchdown at new Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

Of course, the fullback did it on Monday Night against the New Orleans Saints.

Ingold, a second-year fullback, scored on a short pass from Carr to cut the Saints’ lead to 10-7 in the second quarter of the Raiders’ home opener as they debuted the new stadium.

Ironically, he also shares the same birthday.— July 9 — as former running back Clem Daniels, who scored the first Raiders touchdown at the Oakland Coliseum in 1966.

Zay Jones soon became the second Raider to take it into the endzone at Allegiant, with a diving catch from a 15-yard pass from Carr.

Now, let’s see if the Raiders can get their first win in Las Vegas.
