Murphy had six catches for 91 yards and a touchdown in the Raiders' 16-14 win over St. Louis on Sunday.||||||| Murphy has shown the most promise of the Raiders' young receivers, and seems to have clicked with backup Bruce Gradkowski. Monitor Tom Cable's choice at QB before definitely going with Murphy, but the young wideout should be able to get open against Arizona's secondary.
