OAKLAND, California (Ticker) -- Marques Tuiasosopo showed even he could lead the Oakland Raiders' high-powered offense.

Tuiasosopo completed 11-of-16 passes for 156 yards as the Raiders rolled to a 31-3 rout over the Arizona Cardinals in the preseason finale for both teams.

Tuiasosopo came on for starter Rich Gannon, who was in for one series.

The teams exchanged field goal early in the second quarter before Tuiasosopo connected with Reggie Barlow on a 12-yard score for a 10-3 lead with 11:01 left in thew first half.

Rick Mirer threw a five-yard touchdown to Doug Jolley early in the second half and Madre Hill added a 16-yard scoring run with 5:12 left. Zack Crockett capped the scoring with one-yard TD run with 9:05 remaining in the game.

Hill rushed 12 times for 83 yards for Oakland, which split four games during the preseason and hosts the Seattle Seahawks in its season opener on September 8.

Arizona lost three of four preseason games and opens its regular season at Washington on September 8.
