Greetings, Raider fans! Game time is almost upon us and it's time for our first Raiders game thread of the year. Derek Carr and the Raiders starters probably will play about a quarter of the game and then give way to Oakland's many talented backups who are fighting for roster spots. Who will shine tonight for the Silver and Black?
The Cardinals won't be playing a lot of their starters and we won't see first rounder DT Robert Nkemdiche but this team is well-coached and will be a tough test in the first game. Let's just hope for good health all around. Raiderdamus will not be giving a prediction for this game, because who cares what the score is, but RDreamer says Raiders 42, Cardinals negative twelve.
