Palmer addresses struggles


Had to get back upstairs before Carson Palmer emerged from the shower to address the Raiders 31-27 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, but here’s what he had to say after going 13-for-24 for 107 yards, missing an open Darren McFadden for one potential touchdown and throwing an interception that was returned 60 yards for another:

“We need to look at this film and continue to get better and improve and I just need to score more points. There are some things we can clean up that are pretty obvious,” Palmer said. “We had some good things we can improve on also.”

Regarding the turnovers _ Mike Goodson lost a pair of fumbles to go along with Palmer’s interception, he said. “We had some turnovers and and a couple of penalties, and a penalty on a first down puts you in a big hole. There are some things here and there that we need to clean up. When we move the ball like we did, you need to get points out of it. We just need keep our eye on the red zone and keep working on it. We need to get better and get ready for next week.”
