There is nothing quite like seeing.ng Raiders fans celebrating a huge victory. The Las Vegas Raiders -- delivering on their promise to, "Just win, baby!" Fans were fired up after the Raiders' thrilling home opener Monday at Allegiant Stadium.

"I was actually clapping," Raiders fan Kevin Kuhn said.

Kuhn says he also watched the Raiders' preseason game against Seattle last month, in person at Allegiant Stadium. But for him, and so many others, the regular-season win Monday night is so much sweeter.

"The Seahawks game was okay, but this was phenomenal," Kuhn said. "The energy level. I mean everybody was pumped."

The electric excitement is something that has been passed down through the generations. And for some, it is a way to remember those no longer with us.

"My dad was an Oakland Raiders fan forever, so I think about my dad who's gone now, but it was great. He would have loved it," Raiders fan Rosemarie Francis said.

Seeing the stands inside Allegiant Stadium packed with the silver and black is something everyone has been waiting for.
