The Oakland Raiders and Arizona Cardinals combined for just seven regular season wins last year, but both are off to strong starts in the 2019 NFL preseason . The up-and-coming teams clash on Thursday at 8 p.m. ET at University of Phoenix Stadium. Oakland and Arizona met in Week 11 last season, with the Raiders rallying for a 23-21 road win on a 35-yard field goal as time expired. But the Cardinals won the last preseason meeting, 20-10, two seasons ago. Most eyes Thursday night will be on Arizona rookie sensation Kyler Murray , the No. 1 overall draft pick. Murray looked dynamic in the Cards’ preseason opener, a 17-13 win over the Chargers , and coach Kliff Kingsbury said Murray will play more than the one drive he got last week. Sportsbooks list Arizona as a 1.5-point favorite in the latest Raiders vs. Cardinals odds, down sharply from an open of four. The over-under for total points scored is 39.5 after opening at 40.
