Jon Gruden and the Oakland Raiders (3-2) look to hand the Packers (5-1) a loss at Lambeau Field Sunday afternoon. Green Bay leads the all-time series 8-5 including the last seven games. The Raiders last win came back in 1987 when they shutout the Packers 20-0 in Lambeau Field. Green Bay narrowly escaped a Monday night contest against the Lions and look to make it back-to-back wins on their home turf.
Oakland is coming off of a bye week and a two-game win streak including a 24-21 victory over the Chicago Bears at home. Derek Carr threw for 229 yards, but was unable to find the endzone. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs had a career high 123 yards rushing and tied a career best with two touchdowns. Will that week off help the offense improve and be ready for a Packer defense that played on Monday night? No wide receiver picked up more than 50 yards against Chicago. Number one wide out Tyrell Williams missed practice Monday and will definitely be needed against a very good Packer team.
The Packers squeaked out a home victory on Monday night against the Lions Mason Crosby hit a game winning 23 yard field goal as time expired to give the team a 23-22 victory. Aaron Rodgers threw for 283 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. Running back Aaron Jones had 107 yards and four touchdowns in a win last week against the Cowboys, this week it was Jamaal Williams pounding the rock. Williams carried the ball 14 times for 104 yards. Allen Lazard led all receivers with 65 yards and one touchdown. Lazard, who was initially cut by the team back in August, stepped up in the absence of Davante Adams who was out for the second straight game.
