Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders: 3 things to watch
By Nick Ellis
The Oakland Raiders have an unblemished record through the first two preseason games, and they will look to make it three in a row on Thursday.
The Oakland Raiders enter the third preseason game with a 2-0 record, looking impressive on both sides of the ball. The young players for the team have impressed so far, and the starters dominated in their only drive on offense against the Arizona Cardinals this past Thursday night.
Though Antonio Brown made his return to practice on Tuesday, he will not play against the Green Bay Packers this Thursday, along with most of the rest of the established starters. Quarterback Derek Carr looked in full command of the offense against the Cardinals, and you have to like all the upgrades in talent on this roster heading into 2019.
Despite the fact that the starters will not play in this game, which they usually do in preseason game No. 3, there is still a lot to keep an eye on against the Packers. There are plenty of guys still fighting for their roster spot, including guys like Keelan Doss and Anthony Rush, two newcomers who have really made a name for themselves so far this summer.
The third game of the preseason may be the most important in terms of players making the final roster, so let’s take a look at three things to watch during the game against the Packers.
