The Las Vegas Raiders' thrilling 33-27 overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens had viewers glued to their screens Monday.

The game drew the largest TV audience for a Week 1 Monday Night Football matchup since 2013 after nearly 15.3 million viewers watched the contest, ESPN announced Tuesday.

It's also the second most-watched MNF opener in ESPN's history.

The Raiders rallied to score 17 points in the fourth quarter to send the game to overtime. Derek Carr threw an end-zone interception in the extra session, but Las Vegas got the ball back following a Lamar Jackson fumble. Carr then connected with receiver Zay Jones on a game-winning touchdown that ended the contest.

Las Vegas and Baltimore combined for 60 points and 897 yards of offense in the overtime extravaganza.
