Monday Night Football 5PM Pacific on ESPN.

The Raiders and Cowboys have squared off only 10 times in the regular season, but they have played 27 times in the preseason, with the Raiders holding an 18-9 all-time advantage in a series that dates back to 1972. This week’s matchup marks the third time in four seasons that the two teams have met in the preseason and the first time in Oakland since a 31-10 Raider victory in the 2009 preseason opener. The Raiders lead the all-time regular season series, 6-4, with the teams last squaring off on Thanksgiving Day 2009 in Dallas, a 24-7 Cowboys victory.

Last season both teams finished with a record of 8-8. This will be the first test of the Raiders under new coach Dennis Allen. How do you think they will do?

I'll definitely be tuning in. Hopefully we'll see all 3 QBs in Carson, Matt, & Terrell play. My guess is Raiders 21, Cowboys 17.

Injury Report-

The Cowboys will play without at least six expected starters. Rookie cornerback Morris Claiborne, their first-round draft pick, will not play because of a sprained left knee, and also out will be two-time Pro Bowl receiver Miles Austin (hamstring), Pro Bowl nose tackle Jay Ratliff (foot), defensive end Jason Hatcher (groin), linebacker Anthony Spencer (hamstring) and center Phil Costa (back).

For the Raiders, Miller will see a bulk of the carries on Monday because of injuries to Mike Goodson and Taiwan Jones, who are also in the race to serve as the main backup to the dynamic McFadden

It's only preseason, bit I miss the silver and black. I wanna see or 1st team offense be efficient and score at least one touchdown. I want to see our 1st string defense sack Romo a couple times. I really can't wait to see Terrelle Pryor get some playing time. I want to see him in action, tonight...

Aright let's do this. I've been waiting 8 months to see my Raiders in action. Can't wait to see what Palmer and DMC look like in the first couple of drives.

Darren McFadden tearing it up! 16 yards on screen pass, then another 16 yards on a run!

Crap- Palmer intercepted. A risky play- I rather we would've kept going to McFadden and milk his hot start.

^^ I guess they wanted to see if the ball hit the ground? I'm not sure but they mentioned that because it was going to commercial they were going to review it. Weird.

Well other than that pass completion the D looks pretty good so far, especially vs the run.

Yeah weird how it took forever to look at something that was pretty obvious.

Yes the D looked pretty solid, especially vs. the run, which I like since it was their weakness last year.

Well at least Palmer didn't get happy feet and throw a pick while the pocket crumbled.

That's hilarious- Dallas another penalty to give the Raiders a first down! I don't want to win- you take the game. No sir, I insist you win.

Hey Matt Leinart in there now.

Looks like that's a wrap for Palmer. McFadden looked great and Palmer well...lol. Can't fully blame him though since Ford did drop 2 must-catch passes.

Nice job by the special team to down the ball at the 1/2 yard line! Oh wait he was too greedy and the ball touched the line- touchback. Rolling Eyes First preseason game, what can you expect.

Lol perfect shot right there, Palmer talking to Ford on the sideline. I can only imagine what he's telling him.

Lol. Yep it's looking like one of those games. And I don't mean a defensive battle. 13-3 Raiders.

Both teams offenses look like a baby calf trying to walk for the first time. What do you expect from the 1st preseason I guess.

Streater is looking pretty good out there. So far the only WR consistently catching passes.

So far I am seeing some good things and some not so good things, but hey, its preseason. Our pass rush looks good.

^^Yeah he and Leinart are working well together- lots of completions- another one just as I type!

But the way this game is going- it may well be 3-0, Jani winning it on a 65 yarder as time expires.
