4 reasons the Oakland Raiders will beat the Green Bay Packers in Week 7
By Nick Ellis
The Raiders are fresh
The Raiders are in the middle of their long stretch of road games, but they have won their last two games, and coming off a bye week, they should be refreshed and excited. If the Raiders were heading to Green Bay straight from London, it would be hard to see them pulling this game off, but I would expect the Raiders to be as anxious as ever to travel and play football.
The Packers, on the other hand, have played six games straight, most of them being tough games. The team has gotten extremely banged up over the last two weeks, they just had a tough game against the Lions where the referees bailed them out for the victory, and it is easy to think that a lot of the Packers players are ready for a break.
The Raiders will come into this game much more fired up than the Packers, much more healthy than the Packers, and they will start off hot as always, mentally breaking the Packers early.
