OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) - Darren McFadden picked up where he left off before a foot injury cut last season short by gaining 38 yards on Oakland's first three plays of the exhibition season and the Raiders went on to lose to the Dallas Cowboys 3-0 Monday night.
McFadden, who missed the last nine games of 2011 with a Lisfranc injury to his right foot, opened with a 4-yard run, an 18-yard reception and a 16-yard run to delight of the Raiders fans. But Carson Palmer threw an interception to Gerald Sensabaugh on the next play for Oakland .
McFadden left after the first series and Palmer couldn't do much without him. Matt Leinart completed six passes as he closed out the first half for the Raiders, who were being led by first year head coach Dennis Allen.
Dan Bailey's 33-yard field goal on the opening drive of the second half for Dallas provided the only scoring. Kyle Orton drove Dallas 67 yards to set up the kick.
Sebastian Janikowski missed wide right on a 47 yard field goal during the game.
Terrelle Pryor, the former Ohio State star quarterback, completed 8 of 15 passes for 50 yards in the second half for Oakland. He scrambled 6 times for 21 yards, but Eddy Carmona missed a 36 yard field goal with 6:44 to play. Pryor threw an interception on fourth and 26 in the final minute to seal the game.
Oakland returns to action Friday at Arizona.
