Carson Palmer threw two touchdown passes in his return to Oakland and the Arizona Cardinals sent the Raiders to their 12th straight loss with a 24-13 victory Sunday.

Stepfan Taylor caught one touchdown pass and ran for another, and Andre Ellington gained 160 yards from scrimmage for the Cardinals (5-1), who are off to their best start since 1976.

Darren McFadden ran for a touchdown for the Raiders (0-6), off to their worst start to a season since losing their first 13 games in 1962 — the year before late owner Al Davis joined the franchise.
