Oakland Raiders at Arizona Cardinals
University of Phoenix Stadium 7pm PST, click here to see if it's playing in your area.
The Raiders travel to the land of the sun in Arizona for their annual preseason matchup with the Cardinals. Many of you may not be able to see this on TV but you can always listen to the radio broadcast and chat with your fellow Raider fans in this thread to get your fix. And the firsthand accounts should keep you feeling like you are there until hopefully you can watch the replay on NFL Network Saturday at 10pm.
The Starters should play most of the first half in this one so the team and everyone watching can get a much better look at them. They played only the first quarter in the preseason opener, and some played less than that.
We saw how capable the defensive line was in the first game. We also saw Darren McFadden run like we know he can when he's healthy. It's every other part of the team that we await to make some plays this week.
The areas of particular interest are the cornerbacks, both starters and backups. The Starters will face one of the best in all of football in Larry Fitzgerald so it will be a great test for them. The backups just looked terrible last week and need to step up, most notably Demarcus Van Dyke and Chimdi Chekwa who are in line to be the first off the bench.
Mike Goodson will make his first game appearance and will play more than any other running back so it will be interesting to see how he performs as well.
Keep the thread going and let's get ready for some football.
