GLENDALE, Ariz. — What’s one sign you’ve made it in the NFL?

When all of your key starters don’t even bother to hit the field in the exhibition opener, which the Raiders lost 20-10 on Saturday night to the Arizona Cardinals.

Derek Carr suited up but never needed his helmet as only three offensive starters ever saw the field. Most of their starting defense was out there, as it should have been considering the work it needs, but Khalil Mack and Bruce Irvin didn’t play.

Marshawn Lynch experienced an interesting night as he suited up for the Raiders for the first time.
