The Oakland Raiders remained undefeated (in the preseason) after defeating the Green Bay Packers in Winnepeg. Here are three things we learned from the 22-21 victory.
Leave it to the Oakland Raiders to have a part in making a somewhat meaningless preseason game entertaining. The Raiders played host to the Green Bay Packers in the third game of the preseason, though not in the Coliseum. The Silver and Black took their 2-0 record in the preseason up to Canada, Winnipeg to be exact, for a meeting with Green Bay.
Even without the starters playing on both sides, the matchup was not without entertainment.

But even with the second and third-string units out on the field, there were plenty of takeaways.
From continuing positional battles, standout individual performances along with noticeable struggles, here are three things we learned from the Raiders’ third preseason victory.
