The Raiders head to the desert Thursday night for their second preseason game of 2019.
Jon Gruden's Raiders squad will face Kliff Kingsbury's high-flying Cardinals offense led by No. 1 overall draft pick Kyler Murray. Arizona ia coming off an ugly season but could be a team on the rise with plenty of weapons for the electrifying QB.
One player who will aim to take Murray down is Raiders defensive end Arden Key. The second-year pro is seeking advice left and right to help improve his sack totals this season.
The Raiders look to improve to 2-0 in the preseason after winning last week's opener against the Rams. Not too many starters will see extensive playing time, but plenty of players will need to step up to earn roster spots.

With training camp two months away, the Raiders already are pretty much set with their offensive and defensive starting lineups. Yes, camp always creates a surprise or two, and the Raiders would welcome any sort of competition across the lineup to raise the level of play.
But if you assume first-round pick Henry Ruggs gets a starting nod at wide receiver and that free agent pickups Cory Littleton (LB), Nick Kwiatkoski (LB), Damarious Randall (S) and Maliek Collins (DT) do the same at their positions, it means only a few big battles loom for starting jobs.
Here is a look at three:
With Travon Mullen solidifying himself as a starter at one cornerback, the Raiders go to training camp needing to find a starter at the other cornerback spot.
The Raiders’ proceeds from the sale of personal seat licenses at Allegiant Stadium continues to smash original estimates and has now climbed to $549 million.
Initial estimates by the team projected PSL sales would generate around $250 million.
When the PSLs sold out in January, the revenue generated by sales sat at $478 million. The new total provided at Thursday’s Las Vegas Stadium Authority board meeting revealed that number is still rising.

The $71 million increase from January is tied to seat holders who are on the various financing plans making payments, according to Raiders President Marc Badain.
All the proceeds from the PSL sales are being infused into the nearly $2 billion stadium now under construction.
