Raiders Vs. Cardinals: Recap Of Oakland's Week 2 Loss To Arizona

The Oakland Raiders lost to the Arizona Cardinals, 31-27, Friday night, falling to 0-2 in the 2012 preseason. SB Nation's Raiders blog Silver And Black Pride has a recap of the game, highlighting items of note.

The Raiders outgained the Cardinals in the air and on the ground in the first half, but went to the locker room trailing 24-11. They took an early lead, but followed it up with sloppy mistakes:

The next time the Raiders got the ball on offense, Carson Palmer threw an interception on the first play. The Cardinals would get a field goal out of it and retake the lead just like that.

Then it was Mike Goodson who fumbled away the ball and the Cardinals would get the ball and score their second touchdown of the day.

Next Raiders offensive possession stalled and they were force to punt. The punt was blocked and returned for another touchdown.

Things looked better in the second half, where the second-team offense was able to reach the end zone:

Chimdi Chekwa came up with an interception on the Cardinals' initial drive and with the help of a 12 men on the field penalty on the Raiders punt followed by a 26 yard catch by Juron Criner, the Raiders were able to score their first touchdown of the 2012 preseason. Lonyae Miller pushed up the middle from two yards out to make it 18-24.
