The Oakland Raiders will get their preseason started this Saturday as they travel to Arizona. The Arizona Cardinals will be playing their second game this preseason, but this time the starters will be making their debut in this one.
It was an interesting offseason for the Oakland Raiders where, offensively, they focused on trades and free agents and in the draft they mainly focused on the defensive side of the ball.
Second round safety Obi Melifonwu should get plenty of playing time and will look to help out a defense that really struggled last year. Also, third round defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes will be one to watch for, as well.
Also, what to watch for is the halfback situation. We know that Marshawn Lynch will be the starter, but how much playing time will Jalen Richard and DeAndre Washington receive?
That will be something to monitor as the week progresses.
It’s also worth mentioning that seventh round pick Elijah Hood should get plenty of action in this one.
The Arizona Cardinals got their preseason kicked off last Thursday when they played the Dallas Cowboys during the Hall of Fame Game.
As usual, both teams played like this was the last thing they wanted to do in Canton, Ohio. But there were still some bright spots.
Blane Gabbert played his way into potentially challenging Drew Stanton for that back-up spot. Gabbert still has a long way to go, but another good performance and if Stanton struggles, you never know.
The starters didn’t play at all against Dallas, but in this one they’ll play about half of the first quarter or so. After that the second string will take over and then the third string and beyond will play the rest of the second half.
This is a Cardinal team with plenty of spots up for grabs, Andre Ellington looked real good and a bonus is Trevor Knight isn’t scheduled to play.

It’s only preseason, but I’m kind of excited for this one. Both teams are physical and are strong in the trenches – maybe save for the Cardinals’ offensive line – nevertheless, this should be a pretty entertaining game for a preseason game.
