Raiders Blog: Week 2 @ Home Vs. Arizona Cardinals, Predictions, and Picks
Prediction: The Raiders, embarrassed by the Week 1 debacle, will rebound with a 34-14 victory today.
Prediction: The Raiders will quickly erase last week’s performance with a 40-7 victory in front of their fans at home at Allegiant Stadium.
Prediction: Week 1 showed the Derek Carr-Davante Adams connection is real. Both players will have huge games to lead the team to a 27–14 victory.
Prediction: This should be a bounce-back game for the Raiders with the Cardinals coming to town. Arizona is coming off a blowout loss to Kansas City, and their roster has been hit hard by injuries and suspensions. Raiders 27, Cardinals 20.
Prediction: The Raiders should have no problem against a Cardinals defense that can barely fight back. Raiders 35, Cardinals 17.
Prediction: The Cardinals are coming off a demoralizing victory while dealing with a litany of injuries going into today’s game. This also sounds like a trap game for the Raiders. Arizona’s blitz will get to Derek Carr, and the Cardinals will pull it off, 21-10.
