Packers 22 vs. Raiders 7: First half highlights

An Eddie Lacy-dominated first drive of the game, followed by a touchdown pass from Aaron Rodgers to Jordy Nelson, and a touchdown pass to Andrew Quarless highlighted the first 30 minutes of the Green Bay Packers vs. Oakland Raiders preseason game from Lambeau Field as the Packers took a 22-7 lead.

Throw in a solid running game led by all three of the Packers running backs – Eddie Lacy, James Starks, and DuJuan Harris, and the Packers offense was opportunistic though not consistent in the early going.

But led by Aaron Rodgers, the Packers first team offense moved the ball well through the air with completions to tight ends and running backs. With the exception of Nelson’s touchdown catch, the Packers’ wide outs were invisible in the first half.

But that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing as Rodgers was taking what the Raiders were giving them.

Rodgers finished his night 9-20, 139 yards, 2 TDs. The  ran 39 plays and 6 series with him in.

In addition to the scoring drives, the Packers defense was solid, with the exception of a breakaway run for a touchdown by Maurice Jones-Drew on the Raiders first drive.

Julius Peppers, Morgan Burnett, Sam Shields, Micah Hyde and Davon House all made big plays for the Packers defense.

As for injuries, B.J. Raji went out early with an arm injury and didn’t return.
