The massive collapse of the raiders in the second half spoils the opening of the house

LAS VEGAS (AP) – On the same day, one of Mark Davis’ pro teams made franchise history in championship fashion, the other did brutal.

For the first time, the Raiders lost a game they had led by 20 points or more when Las Vegas edged out 20-0 at the break and fell to the Arizona Cardinals 29-23 in overtime on Sunday.

“Disappointed,” said safety raiders Doron Harmon. “It is very disappointing. We knew they would be back. They have great players out there, and a great coaching staff. But it is disappointing. We will learn from him. It will be a blessing to us if we use it the right way, and we look forward to using it the right way and getting back to work this week.”

Nearly four minutes after Davis personally watched the Las Vegas Aces win their first WNBA championship in Connecticut, the Cardinal completed an 11-game, 94-yard run to put their first points on the board with a 6:08 left in the third quarter making it 20-7.

It was clear that Arizona quarterback Keeler Murray was on a mission — and the Raiders’ defense could well be in the long second half.

“I had to take charge… I had to do whatever it took to win,” Murray said. “That was my mentality.”
