Following the Green Bay Packers’ dominant win against the Oakland Raiders, what were the top three takeaways?
The Green Bay Packers‘ offense has been slowly coming together in recent weeks, and Sunday’s win over the Oakland Raiders felt like a breakout performance. Everyone played their part as the Packers blew away the Raiders at Lambeau Field in Week 7.
This felt like a potential slip-up game for the Packers, up against a Raiders team that had won three straight and was fresh off the bye week. To add to that, the Packers had to play on just six days rest while dealing with injuries to key players.
It sure didn’t look like it out on the field. Any time the Raiders looked to have gotten back into the game, Aaron Rodgers and the offense marched down the field and extended the lead. We’ll talk more about the offense later in this article.
The Packers and Vikings have opened up a gap in the top two positions of the NFC North. Chicago lost at home to New Orleans, meaning it falls to 3-3. Detroit lost to Minnesota, and remains in fourth place at 2-3-1. Minnesota remains a game behind Green Bay at 5-2, while Matt LaFleur’s Packers lead the division with a great 6-1 record.
It was an excellent win for the Packers on Sunday. What did we learn from the game?
