The visiting Oakland Raiders hounded Kyler Murray, the first overall pick in this year’s draft, and scored the game’s first 26 points before hanging on to top the Arizona Cardinals 33-26 on Thursday night in Glendale, Ariz.
Murray finished 3 of 8 for 12 yards while taking two sacks, the second of which went for a safety to make it 26-0 midway through the second quarter, his last play of the night. He had one rush for 4 yards but was largely contained by Oakland defensive coordinator Paul Guenther’s blitzes.
Raiders quarterback Derek Carr made his preseason debut and played one series, hitting both of his attempts for 40 yards, including a 13-yard touchdown pass to Ryan Grant. Mike Glennon entered next and went 11 of 14 for 175 yards and two scores. Rookie first-round running back Josh Jacobs chipped in four carries for 21 yards.
Brett Hundley went 10 of 15 for 139 yards and a 40-yard touchdown for the Cardinals, who scored 16 points after halftime. Second-round rookie wideout Andy Isabella got loose for a 59-yard TD reception with 2:49 remaining.
