The Oakland Raiders are a young, talented team still learning to play together under head coach Hue Jackson's system. Sure, everyone wants to win a game every time they step on the field, but don't be foolish enough to think that's the most important thing this preseason.
If that were the case, the Raiders would have had their starting defense on the field every time the Cardinals had their starting offense out there. The preseason is mainly about finding out who you can trust to play the right way in your system.
Therefore, the real winners and losers aren't the teams based on the final score but the play of the individuals. Coaches are thinking, "Good! I can trust this guy to do that! Oh! I don't think I could trust that guy to do that!"
