NAPA, CA (AP) - Carson Palmer is running out of time to get the Oakland Raiders first-team offense into the end zone in the preseason.
The Raiders (tied for No. 23 in the AP Pro32) broke camp Thursday after spending more than three weeks in Napa, still looking for their first win and first-team touchdown of the preseason.
Palmer has been able to move the Oakland offense at times in the first two exhibition games. But a pair of interceptions, a handful of dropped passes and an inability to punch it in from close to the goal line has plagued Oakland so far in losses to Dallas and Arizona.
