The NFL preseason week 2 has started with the first five games taking place on Thursday night. As the new season is about to begin, the teams are testing all of their weapons before kick-off day, forming their new starting line-ups. 

The most interesting match took place at State Farm Stadion in Glendale, Arizona where the improved Oakland Raiders squared off against Arizona Cardinals with a final result of 33-26 – without their star Wide Receiver Antonio Brown. Raiders starting quarterback Derek Carr was on the field for a short time, throwing 2/2 from the field for a total of 40 yards, before being benched for the second QB Nathan Peterman (8/8 from the field for 41 yard) and later their third-string QB Mike Glennon, finishing the game with 14/11 from the field for 175 yards.  

On the losing side, Kyler Murray, the new star on the Cardinals roster, went 8/3 from the field for just 12 yards after being replaced later on with the rest of the QB’s on the roster, with Brett Hundley making the most of it by going 15/10 from the field for a total of 139 yards.
