Packers vs Raiders Preview
The biggest storyline for either team heading into the game is the ongoing Antonio Brown saga. First showing up to training camp with severely frostbitten feet, Brown has since taken up issue with the NFL’s new helmet policy and has yet to see any preseason action. Brown’s helmet situation seems to be getting close to a resolution and the introduction of the prolific pass-catcher to the offense along with what seems to be a bolstered offensive line should do wonders to help get franchise quarterback Derek Carr back on track.
While Carr has put up solid numbers since breaking out in 2015, he’s only had one winning season with the Raiders and the team has been in steady decline over the past two seasons. While this is partly due to Jon Gruden taking over last season and essentially tearing the entire team down, the fact remains that Carr needs to prove he can rack up wins along with his stats or he won’t have a starting job in the NFL much longer. The Raiders have certainly put him in a position to contend this year and have armed with arguably the best receiver in the league along with what looks to be a much-improved defense.
On the Packers side, new head coach Matt LeFleur takes over what looks to be a fairly lopsided roster surrounding quarterback Aaron Rodgers. While Rodgers has yet to play in the preseason, he is expected to suit up in week three. He has plenty of weapons on the offensive side of the football in Devante Adams and Aaron Jones, so don’t expect Rodgers and the Packers’ offense to slow down much despite the regime change. However, the defense leaves quite a bit to be desired. Gone is longtime defensive leader Clay Matthews as well any remanent of the turnover-happy defense that helped propel Rodgers to his lone title.
In their place, the Packers boast one of the younger defensive units in the league with the majority of players still on their rookie deals. They added linebackers Za’Darius Smith and Preston Smith as well as safety Adrian Amos in the offseason which should help shore up the relatively inexperienced defense. Don’t be surprised to see this unit potentially exceed expectations given the strong leadership of Mike Pettine, though it seems the young Packers unit will need a bit more seasoning in order to turn into one of the better defenses in the league.
