OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) -- Art Shell gathered his team the night before the game and told his players they needed to find some swagger.Nothing like a visit from the hapless Arizona Cardinals to do the trick.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Arizona Cardinals came out flat and seemingly had a hangover from their embarrassing loss against the Chicago Bears last Monday night. The Raiders brought extensive pressure and completely rattled QB Matt Leinart. The Arizona Cardinals were again unable to get anything going in their run game. Despite the defense again creating turnovers, the Cardinals were unable to capitalize, generating just nine points off five turnovers.
The Cardinals were able to hang in the game due to Raiders QB Andrew Walter (above) consistently holding on to the ball too long in the pocket and turning the ball over. Before leaving the game due to a hamstring injury and despite the turnovers (three), Walter was able to have a career passing day against the speedy Cardinals defense. The Raiders managed to control the clock late and secured the victory.
Former Raiders coach John Madden received his Hall of Fame ring in a pregame ceremony. ... Arizona WR Anquan Boldin caught his 300th career pass in the third quarter in his 47th career game, making him the fastest player to reach the mark, besting Lionel Taylor's record of 54 games. ... The Raiders have intercepted six passes this season, one more than they had all of 2005.
