THE TEAM NEWS

OAKLAND RAIDERS

  • Oakland did a great job of taming the Chicago defense to claim a valuable win in their clash in London before their bye week.
  • The 3-2 Raiders could receive a boost this week with the return of RG Gabe Jackson, which would give them a full strength offensive line, and with two limited practices on Wednesday and Thursday he is trending towards suiting up.
  • WR Tyrell Williams was expected to make his comeback in this game after sitting out his team’s last game against the Bears due to a foot injury but he was unable to return to practice in the early part of the week and remains doubtful.

GREEN BAY PACKERS

  • Green Bay overcame a slow start to improve to 5-1 as Mason Crosby kicked a 23-yard FG for a walk-off win over NFC North rivals Detroit in a hard-fought contest and now face another tricky test against Oakland.
  • The Packers will be desperate to get WR Davante Adams back on the field after Geronimo Allison suffered a concussion in last week's game but he was unable to practice at the start of the week with his turf toe still causing problems.
  • Adam and Allison were two of eight players to sit out Thursday’s practice which included another WR in Marquez Valdes-Scantling which could leave the Packers extremely light in the position whilst S Darnell Savage was also sidelined at practice having missed his team’s Week 6 clash.

THE PREDICTION

Green Bay were made to work to maintain their strong start to the season but did just enough to see off Detroit and are now 3-0 against their divisional rivals. They host an Oakland side coming off their bye and a good win last time out but the Packers should be too strong at home. They will need some good news on the injury front if they are to come out on top with up to three WRs in doubt and if they are, RB Jamaal Williams will take a bigger role in the offense after a strong showing last week.
