Previewing Raiders vs. Cowboys

Here are three keys for the Oakland Raiders to focus on in Friday’s preseason opener against visiting Dallas. Kickoff is set for 10 p.m. ET.:

The quarterbacks: All four quarterbacks on Oakland’s roster must play well in the preseason for different reason. It will be fascinating to watch the entire game when Oakland is on offense.

The pass rush: The Raiders have to show a better pass rush and it needs players to step up. Someone must flash during the preseason.

Taiwan Jones: The converted running back should get some solid playing time at cornerback. He has had a solid camp. He should make the team because of his great special teams play. But he does need to play well at cornerback.
