Raiders-Packers Preseason 2014: Second Half Game Thread

New, comments

Join APC as we discuss the second half of the Packers' third preseason game.

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers have not been quite as sharp on offense as they were in last weekend's showing against St. Louis. Multiple Green Bay receivers have dropped passes including two for slot receiver Randall Cobb. Even All-Pro guard Josh Sitton gave up a bad sack midway through the first quarter. Despite the issues, Aaron Rodgers and company managed to put three touchdowns on the board as well as two successful two-point conversions.

Green Bay's defense experienced issues of it's own early on, exhibiting poor tackling on a 40-yard touchdown run by Maurice Jones-Drew. The unit settled in soon after, however, and held the Raiders to zero additional points and few first downs the remainder of the half. Highlights include a sack for outside linebacker Julius Peppers, his first as a member of the Packers.

Green Bay kicks off to start the second half. Join our game discussion in the comment section below.
