Raiders’ huge second-half collapse spoils home opener
LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Raiders lost a game in which they led by 20 or more points for the first time when Las Vegas blew a 20-0 halftime lead and fell to the Arizona Cardinals 29-23 in overtime. The Cardinals completed an 11-play, 94-yard drive to put their first points on the board with 6:08 left in the third quarter to make it 20-7. It was clear Arizona quarterback Kyler Murray was on a mission, and the Raiders defense could be in for a long second half. After gaining just 86 yards on 19 offensive plays in the first half, Arizona was on the field for 59 offensive plays and gained 327 yards in the second half.

Murphy’s 59-yard OT fumble return ends Cards’ win over Vegas
LAS VEGAS (AP) — Byron Murphy Jr. scooped up Hunter Renfrow’s fumble and returned it 59 yards for a touchdown with 3:51 left in overtime and the Arizona Cardinals rallied from a 20-point deficit in the second half before running away with a 29-23 victory over the Las Vegas Raiders. Renfrow made a catch and fumbled while trying to stretch forward and Murphy snagged the loose ball and sprinted down the Cardinals’ sideline to the end zone. Murphy scored the touchdown that capped a phenomenal late rally started by Kyler Murray, who rushed for a touchdown as time expired and then threw a 2-point conversion pass to A.J. Green.
