The stats looked pretty ominous for the Raiders starting Offense: (At least for those not named McFadden)
Carson Palmer: 3-6 for 33 yards (should be 5-6 for about 55 yards) with apick
Darren McFadden: 2 rushes for 20 yards, 1 rec for 18 yards
Jacoby Ford: 2 Drops
DBH: 1 catch for 7 yards
The defense was another story as LaMarr Houston, Des Bryant and Tommy Kelly just flat out got after the ball and wreaked havoc on the offensive backfield.
Rolando McClain also looked great with a hard hit and good coverage over the middle.
I didn't get to see much of the cornerbacks, but it is apparent that Tarver and Allen have these guys getting after the ball.
The best performance was probably from Marquette King. Yep, that's right, the rookie punter who clobbered three punts, including one that should have been touched down inside the 5 yard line, but Chimdi Chekwa let it roll into the end zone.
