By Nate LoCascio The Green Bay Packers will face their first road test of the preseason as they travel to Oakland to face the Raiders. It is the third preseason matchup between the two teams in the past five years (2014, 2016). It is the first time Green Bay has played at Oakland in the preseason since 2001. The Packers are 5-5 against the Raiders in the preseason. Dating back to 2008, the Packers are 7-3 in the third preseason game they have played.
If Green Bay wins tonight, it will mark the fourth time in the last five years that the Packers have won three preseason games (2014, 2016-17). Green Bay has scored 20-plus points in five of its last six preseason contests. The Packers will finish the preseason with a road game against the Chiefs in Kansas City on Thursday, Aug. 30.
Last week, Green Bay defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers, 51-34, at Lambeau Field. The Packers have won seven consecutive preseason home games and nine of the last 10 preseason games played at Lambeau Field. Green Bay opened the preseason with a 31-17 win over Tennessee at Lambeau Field, marking the fourth consecutive year the Packers won the first preseason game they played.
