Carson Palmer Replaces Kyle Boller, Throws Pick-Six

It's been a downright terrible day for the Oakland Raiders quarterbacks. In fact, it might be a good idea to just use running backs out of the wildcat and cut out the middle man. You see, Kyle Boller started the game and it was about as predictable as could be. Boller came out and immediately threw an pick-six.

But Boller wasn't done -- not by a longshot. In addition to the early interception that was returned for a touchdown, Boller added two more picks as the Raiders offense struggled to get anything going. It was only a matter of time before the Kyle Boller era ended.

In the second half, Boller's day came to a merciful end as Carson Palmer made his debut. Except things haven't gone so hot for Palmer, either. For example, Palmer joined the pick-six parade!

So there's that. Boller was 7-15 for 61 yards and Palmer is 7-14 for 83 yards so far, with the former throwing three interceptions and the latter one. Either way, the quarterback play hasn't been great and with Darren McFadden dealing with some kind of foot injury, the Raiders' offense is struggling.

UPDATE: As this was published, Palmer threw a second interception. If you're wondering what's on the line in this game, Jason LaCanfora lets you know:

Palmer promptly pulls a Boller and throws a pick six. Raiders AFC West win streak, dating back to Nov 2009, is dying
