The Raiders and Cardinals are tied after the half, 14-14. Does anyone want to win this game? Can anyone win this game? Should it even be allowed to continue?
Both teams have had plenty of success running the football, with Oakland running for 80 yards so far and Arizona rushing for 69 yards. The Raider defense has taken full advantage of Josh Rosen’s erratic play, picking him off twice. Derek Carr hasn’t been erratic, but he hasn’t exactly been accurate either. Even so, both quarterbacks have two touchdown passes.
The Raiders defense has been pretty okay, as long as Arizona isn’t trying to run the ball down their throat, which I expect them to keep trying to do. Maurice Hurst has another sack, and Rosen will want to stay out of his way as much as possible. Can the Raiders ride Carr and Doug Martin to victory, or will they drop another on the road? Let’s find out.
Enjoy the second half!
