The following are three things to watch for during Oakland’s preseason game at Arizona on Friday. Kickoff is set for 10 p.m. ET.
1. Carson Palmer: Palmer didn’t produce much at all in a dreadful 3-0 loss to Dallas on Monday night. Palmer suffered from some dropped passes, but he threw a bad interception and must continue to focus on his accuracy.
2. Rod Streater: The undrafted rookie, a star in organized team activities and in training camp, maintained the trend against Dallas, catching six passes. Can he continue his hot streak? If so, we could be seeing a regular-season contributor in the making.
3. Defense: Oakland’s first-team defense had some moments Monday night, but it did benefit from horrible execution by Dallas. Let’s see this unit -- a key to success in Oakland -- continue to make strides against the Cardinals.
