The Oakland Raiders are still undefeated in the preseason — if only it counted toward the regular season — and they’ll try and keep their winning ways going as they host the Green Bay Packers at IG Field in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada for their third contest.
Last week, defensive coordinator Paul Guenther and his unit brought the hammer on the 2019 No. 1 overall pick, Kyler Murray. The defense was active in the trenches and relentless in their pursuit of Murray, and they were even able to pin him down for a safety. While the 33-26 final score might not seem like the Raiders won it dominantly, the Silver and Black jumped out to a 26-point lead at one point.
It’s possible we might see a few of the starters on Thursday, but Head Coach Jon Gruden indicated it would be more about the players on the cusp of making the roster. Hopefully everyone can come out of the game healthy and with another win under their belt.Here’s how to follow along:
