The Packers have started 2019 on a roll, however, winning five of their opening six games. While many hoped the Raiders would hover around.500 going into the season, few expected this team to be 3-2 going into their bye week. Following a bye last week, the Raiders are back on the road with games at Green Bay and at Houston. They beat Indy at Indy.
They have tried to piece the two position groups together in recent weeks, and were successful against Chicago, but those two areas could come back to hurt them later on. They have really quality coaching. The Packers were down 22-13 with 12:17 to go before scoring 10 points in the final 9:03 to get the win. The Raiders defeated the Bears prior to their bye and will have had almost two weeks to prepare for this game, while Green Bay won a tough nail biter on Monday night against Detroit and has a short week to prepare. In Adams' absence, Rodgers has thrown to nine different targets in each of the past two games.
Undrafted receiver Allen Lazard led the Packers with four receptions and 65 receiving yards and a touchdown against the Lions on Monday night.
This is not the same Ryan Grant who used to play for the Packers. The Raiders released him in late September.
Grant has 123 receptions for 1,333 yards and seven touchdowns in 80 career National Football League games.
Grant will wear the no. 11 for the Packers.
"I think [Packers General Manager] Brian (Gutekunst) is doing everything in his power".
"I feel pretty good", Jackson said.
Also, the Packers have declared tight end Jace Sternberger created to return off IR., per a source. Sternberger injured his ankle during training camp. He will now have two weeks to practice before he can join the active roster. One of the team's starting receivers, Tyrell Williams, has a foot injury and did not practice on Wednesday.
Coincidentally, the Packers host the Raiders on Sunday.
