Arizona 24(W) - Oakland 13
The Raiders continue to lose and the Cardinals looks to be getting back on track with Carson Palmers return. This match belonged to Arizonas Andre Ellington as he led the team in both rushing and receiving, tallying up 88yds on the ground and 72 through the air. Rumour has it that the Raiders are in contention to return to Los Angles, though it will be interesting to see how the locals take to a win-less team and an organization that has been down and out since the 80’s(minus that “one” year).
