This was the beginning, but so far, what Josh McDaniels did 'Raiders only won.
Las Vegas won their second pre-season match this year in many experiments, defeating Viking, 26-20, at Allegiant Stadium on Sunday.
The Raiders did not dominate as they did in the Hall of Fame match, but they led all afternoon.
Raiders WR D.J. Turner added some juice to this preseason affair with a lightning-fast 35-yard catch and run for a touchdown in the third quarter.
Mullens held in the pocket and hit Turner in stride, and Turner did the rest.
Turner had three total catches for 58 yards, and he added a 26-yard punt return. Suddenly, he appears to be a player to watch in Las Vegas.
The Raiders finished the afternoon with more rushing yards than the Vikings, but Minnesota averaged 5.2 yards per carry.
