Previewing a preseason battle between the Cardinals and Raiders.
The Arizona Cardinals will look to get on track in their third preseason game of training camp on Friday night against the Oakland Raiders. With a quarterback battle between Kevin Kolb and John Skelton heating up and no true leader emerging, all eyes will be on the Arizona deserts to see if someone begins to stand out.
For the Raiders, they are simply looking to keep everyone healthy and improve upon a solid 2011 campaign. This was a team that finished 8-8 last season despite injuries to nearly every key offensive playmaker, including Darren McFadden. They lost their lone game of the preseason thus far -- a 3-0 snoozer to the Cowboys -- on Monday Night Football earlier in the week.
Kickoff Time: Everything is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. MT from University of Phoenix Stadium.
TV Schedule: Those of you in the Phoenix area can find the game on ABC-15. Pre-game coverage will begin at 6:30 p.m.
Radio: Sirius ch. 92 will air the game live.
Odds: The Cardinals opened as three-point favorites, believe it or not.
