NBC Sunday Night Football heads to California as the Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals get set to do battle in Week 3 of the preseason.

The country will get a look at the Derek Carr and Amari Cooper, who are the Raiders young dynamic duo that will showcase the future of the Raiders. The pair connected on a 40 yard pass in Week 2 to set up an eventual touchdown.

As for the Cardinals, they’ll try to get Carson Palmer into some sort of rhythm as he continues to heal from his season ending injury last season.

Arizona has scored 19 points in both of their first 2 preseason games and have started 0-2.

The teams met in 2014 during the regular season with Arizona coming out 24-13 winners.

Kickoff is set for 8:00 PM ET on NBC.

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals have been working with QBs Drew Stanton and Carson Palmer as both get set to prepare for the 2015 season.

Carson Palmer, who missed a majority of the 2014 season, is expected to be the #1 and should see a lot more playing time this week.

The Cardinals redid their entire offensive line in hopes of slowing down the pass rush and keeping their QBs healthy. That hasn’t been the case this preseason as last week the Chargers sacked Palmer twice and knocked him down another time.

As far as the running back situation is concerned for Arizona, Andre Ellington is still the clear cut #1, but he’s got some pressure behind him. Rookie David Johnson rushed for 66 yards last week and will offer a solid #2 choice for Arizona.

Even though Ellington will get a majority of the carries the competition will also offer a variety of different packages the Cardinals can use.

Arizona has been a defensive minded team these last couple seasons. With a healthy Palmer and 2 solid RBs behind him, the Cardinals can turn their offense into a legit threat in 2015.

Oakland Raiders

The Raiders have been the cellar of the AFC time after time. While they don’t necessarily have all the dominant tools, they have reason for optimism heading into this season.

Oakland got a glimpse to their future as QB Derek Carr connected with WR Amari Cooper for a 40 yard pass last week.

The duo is expected to do big things in 2015 as the Raiders have built their last two drafts around these guys.

RB Latavius Murray led the way for Oakland in Week 2 of the preseason with an early 20 yards and a 2 yard touchdown rush.

Murray, like the other starters, is expected to get a lot more time this week as he tries to build up his strength.

Oakland’s fans and front office have a lot to believe and with the national stage watching tonight, the offensive starters will get a lot of time. Oakland has drafted and scouted the past couple years to build a solid foundation with Carr. Cooper and Murray offer that foundation in a big way.
