Raiders have five field goals tonight.Just three touchdowns in preseason.

Halftime: Raiders 15, Cardinals 3

Derek Carr is 13-for-26 for 160 passing yards, but he hasn't engineered a TD drive. No matter. Sebastian Janikowski is 5-for-5 on FGs to account for all of the Raiders' points. Meanwhile, the Cards' O-line has struggled to protect Carson Palmer, who is 7-for-20 with two interceptions. Follow live

Cornerback Charles James, whose socks have become famous on Hard Knocks, doesn't care that his 73-yard touchdown run got called back due to a hold. James still told reporters in the post-game locker room it was the best moment of his life. "My teammates running on the field, that s----'s incredible, dude," he said. He's also going to keep the ball and try to get it decked out like a game ball.
