Green Bay Packers at Oakland Raiders: Game preview and prediction
By Brad Weiss
The Oakland Raiders continue their preseason slate tonight, as they head to Canada to take on the Green Bay Packers in Winnipeg.
Outside of the injury to starting right guard Gabe Jackson, the Oakland Raiders have enjoyed a pretty successful summer so far, as they look to rebound from a four-win 2018 season. New general manager Mike Mayock has seemingly brought in the right blend of rookies, and veterans, the Silver and Black have taken care of business through the first two preseason games.
After holding the NFC champion Los Angeles Rams to only three points in the first preseason game, the Raiders unveiled their starting offense in game No. 2 against the Arizona Cardinals on the road. Star quarterback Derek Carr looked very comfortable in year 2 of Jon Gruden’s offense, leading the Raiders to an opening drive touchdown, before being retired for the evening.
Enter Mike Glennon, who looked very good under center, throwing two touchdowns, including a long one to Rico Gafford. Thanks to a stifling defense on 2019 No. 1 overall pick Kyler Murray, the Raiders got out to a 26-0 led, and never looked back. Tonight, they look to run their preseason record to 3-0 against the Green Bay Packers.
Here is a quick look at preseason game No. 3 for the Oakland Raiders.
