Week 3 of the preseason will see the Green Bay Packers taking on the Oakland Raiders.
The Raiders are now 2-0 in the preseason, while the Packers suffered a loss last time out.
Green Bay Packers
The Packers failed to do much in week 2, losing to the Ravens by a score of 26-13. The Packers still have a lot to work on under new head couch, Matt LaFleur and we will need to see improvement in week 3.
Starting with the offense, Tim Boyle led the way in passing for the Packers. He threw 107 yards on 12 of 21 attempts. He also threw the only touchdown of the game for the Packers. Rushing on the other hand was the weakest area for Green Bay. They gained a total of 55 yards on the ground. The leading rusher was Darrin Hall with 31 yards.
The defense has gashed all game long in their previous game against the Ravens. They allowed a total of 343 yards. The Ravens averaged 5.4 yards per play as well, which is a concerning sign as we move closer to the regular season. The one bright spot for the Packers’ defense was Curtis Bolton. Bolton had an interception in this game.
The Raiders have been a surprising tea this preseason, winning each of their first two games. A win over the Cardinals by a score of 33-26 was the headline of last week. The Raiders will get another chance to improve they are legit when they host Packers this week. Even if it is the preseason, the Raiders are looking better than many would have thought.
Derek Carr got the start for the Raiders and was able to lead his team down the field rather quickly in his limited time. He went 2 for 2 in this game, had 40 yards passing and 1 touchdown. Mike Glennon also put on a show, going 11 for 14 with 175 yards and 2 touchdowns. Even Nathan Peterman got into the action, going a perfect 8 for 8 with 41 yards. Unfortunately, the Raiders will not get to play a defense like the Cardinals every week, but still this was a sign of good things to come.
The offense was also 6 for 12 on 3rd downs, which is promising going forward.
The defense was dominant for about half of this game. They held Kyler Murray to 3 of 8 for 12 yards passing. They also forced a safety when they sacked Murray in the end zone. After halftime, Arizona started to rack up some yards, so Oakland needs to focus on finishing games strong.
