The Las Vegas Raiders take on the Arizona Cardinals in their home opener this weekend, here are four reasonable expectations for the Week Two matchup.
The Raiders came up a drive short against the Los Angeles Chargers in their Week 1 matchup as they were unable to complete a dramatic comeback in the fourth quarter. After a big defensive stop with a few minutes to go, the Raiders were stopped on 4th and long to seal the game. They will be hoping for a more comfortable matchup and a less dramatic matchup against the Arizona Cardinals.
After an embarrassing playoff exit last year, the Arizona Cardinals came into the season with high expectations of building on their first playoff appearance in several years. Instead, they were embarrassed by the Kansas City Chiefs who put up 44 points on them on the road.
It was about as dominant of a performance as we have seen from Kansas City and a terrible performance for Arizona who was held to just seven points before the game turned into a laugher. They will be out to course correct and get their season back on track but so will Las Vegas and here are four things we can expect from an early must-win game for both teams.
