The Arizona Cardinals didn't look all that good in their season opener, and I'm not sure if they're all that good of a team overall. I'm not all that high on the Cardinals at the moment. The Las Vegas Raiders have issues of their own, but they did start to find progress in the second half of their opener, and that should carry over at home. This feels like a game where the Raiders start to pull away in the second half. I'll lay the chalk with the Raiders.
