On Sunday, the Green Bay Packers face the Oakland Raiders for the first time of the second Jon Gruden era. Levi Damien of Silver and Black Pride kindly volunteered to answer our questions about the Raiders and provide some insight into their strengths and weaknesses.
APC: If you were building a game plan for the Raiders, how would you attack them on offense? On defense?
Lately offenses have gotten the most out of going after Lamarcus Joyner and Gareon Conley. In the Bears’ three-TD third quarter, Chase Daniel abused Conley and Joyner. That’s where Patrick Mahomes looked in the Chiefs’ four TD second quarter against them in week two. And while most of the secondary played well against the Colts, it was Joyner off whom Jacoby Brissett got most of his biggest plays to keep the game within reach. I suspect if they couldn’t handle the likes of Chase Daniel and Jacoby Brissett, they won’t fair better against Aaron Rodgers.
We’d like to thank Levi. Be sure to check out the rest of our Q&A session with Silver and Black Pride over the course of the week as well as our Q&A session over there. As always, keep your internet machines tuned to Acme Packing Company this Sunday for our comprehensive game-day coverage of Raiders versus Packers.
