The Cardinals will get to face the Raiders for the first time since 2014. In the last meeting, the two tangled in Oakland.
The Cardinals defeated the Raiders 24-13 in that game. The last regular season visit by the Raiders to University of Phoenix Stadium was in 2010. The Cardinals won that game as well 24-23.
The last time the Raiders defeated the Cardinals was in 2006 in Oakland. The Raiders won that contest 22-9.
Now the Raiders are going to face the Cardinals with their new head coach, Jon Gruden. Gruden returns after a nine-year hiatus from coaching.
The only time the Cardinals faced Gruden during his first stint in Oakland from 1998-2001 was in December 2001 near the end of his time there. The Cardinals won a 34-31 overtime thriller.
This will be the third visit to Arizona for the Raiders since the Cardinals moved from St. Louis. The Cardinals are 1-2 against the Raiders in those three games. Barring a preseason or postseason game, this will be the last time the Cardinals will see them as the Oakland Raiders.
