Get the latest analysis, injury reports and highlights as the Green Bay Packers host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday at Lambeau Field.
The Packers receiver finally got a chance to show his ability during Monday night's 23-22 victory over Lions.
No. 1 wide receiver Davante Adams will be out for the third straight game with a turf toe injury, while Geronimo Allison (concussion/chest) is listed as doubtful and Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) is listed as questionable.
The Raiders come into the game ranked eighth in the 32-team NFL in rushing offense (134.4 yards per game) and with running back Josh Jacobs having run 88 times for 430 yards and four touchdowns (4.9 yards per carry) in just five games — ranking him sixth in the NFL in yards per game. Given the Packers’ inconsistency against the run defensively, slowing him down will be vital.
With No. 1 receiver Davante Adams (toe) ruled out, No. 2 receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (knee/ankle) listed as questionable and No. 3 receiver Geronimo Allison (concussion) listed as doubtful, Trevor Davis (above), whom the Packers traded to the Raiders last month for a 2020 sixth-round draft pick, sure would have come in handy this week. Instead, he comes in with the Raiders, having caught four passes for 42 yards with his new team and returning both kickoffs (with a long of 52 yards) and punts (with a long of 13) with his new team.
Jon Gruden has seen a few self-described experts and analytics aficionados suggesting that Aaron Rodgers (above) isn’t on top of his game anymore. From what Gruden, the Oakland Raiders head coach, has watched on film of Rodgers, the Green Bay Packers two-time NFL MVP quarterback, those statistical analyses don’t match up with what he’s seen.
Pro Bowl RB Alvin Kamara, who leads the league in broken tackles and ranks sixth overall in yards from scrimmage, will join NFL passing champion Drew Brees on the sideline Sunday at Soldier Field when the 5-1 New Orleans Saints battle the 3-2 Bears.
