The New Orleans Saints shut out the Las Vegas Raiders in Week 8 by a convincing 24-0 scoreline.

Offensive spotlight: Alvin Kamara hadn’t scored a touchdown this season but set about rectifying that this week. He recorded one rushing and two receiving scores, accounting for 158 yards of total offense for the Saints.

Defensive spotlight: The Saints' defensive line woke up in this game after seven weeks of underachieving. Multiple players tallied more than one pressure, and David Onyemata had a pass-rush win rate of 30.8% on first review.

Rookie spotlight: Chris Olave had six targets and four catches for 39 yards. One of the incompletions was a drop, and he moved the chains every time he caught the ball.

Offensive line spotlight: The Raiders' offensive line has been trending in the right direction as of late and held up reasonably well in pass protection in this contest. Kolton Miller and Jermaine Eluemunor each allowed only one pressure on first review. The unit was notably worse at run blocking against the Saints, though the Raiders barely ran the ball in a game during which they were playing catch-up throughout.
