The Arizona Cardinals defeated the Oakland Raiders 20-10 in their second preseason game of 2017
Another preseason game goes by and no major injuries. That is always a plus. The Arizona Cardinals have three more to get through before the start of the 2017 regular season.
That in itself should be considered good. There are other things that happened during the course of Saturday evening’s game however that should be considered good, some bad, and some ugly.
There are always takeaways regardless of what took place. The end result of victory was nice but its the performances that we look at.
That being said, it is still gratifying to see the Cardinals put a game plan into place and execute it to victory, preseason or not. The play calling last night was left up to quarterbacks coach Byron Leftwich.
There are still a lot of things to work on to get ready for the Detroit Lions in four weeks. However the Cardinals still have about a week and half of training camp remaining and games against the Chicago Bears, Atlanta Falcons, and Denver Broncos.
There weren’t a lot of negatives from the victory but some could definitely still be found. The good news is nothing that was negative on Saturday night is something that can’t be fixed.
