The Green Bay Packers aim to put last week's disappointment behind them when they visit the Las Vegas Raiders on Monday Night Football in Week 5.

Matt LaFleur's team has had extra time to recover and prepare for this game, having played the Detroit Lions on Thursday night last week. Despite the Raiders' 1-3 start, this won't be an easy game for the Packers, especially on the road.

It's hardly a must-win for the Packers, but they will desperately want a victory to enter their bye week with a 3-2 record.

Here's how to watch the Packers on Monday Night Football.

What time is the Packers game tonight?

  • Date: Monday, October 9
  • Time: 7:15 p.m. CT
  • Location: Allegiant Stadium

The Packers play their first game at Allegiant Stadium on Monday Night Football. It is also the first time these two teams have met since the Raiders moved to Las Vegas.

It will be loud inside the stadium, especially for a primetime game. However, while communication will be challenging for Jordan Love and the Packers offense, the Raiders haven't made the most of their home-field advantage, going 11-15 in games at Allegiant Stadium.

Monday Night Football kicks off at 7:15 p.m. CT.

What channel is the Packers game on tonight?

  • TV channel: ABC/ESPN
  • Announcers: Joe Buck, Troy Aikman

You can watch Monday Night Football on ABC and ESPN. Packers-Raiders is the only game on Monday Night Football this week. There were two games in Weeks 2 and 3.

Joe Buck and Troy Aikman are the announcers, which makes this game feel like a big deal. Buck and Aikman have called some memorable Aaron Rodgers moments over the years. Hopefully, the same is true in Jordan Love's first Monday Night Football start.

It is Buck and Aikman's second season announcing Monday Night Football. They had previously worked together on Fox for two decades.

There will also be a 'ManningCast' simulcast for this game.

How to watch ManningCast coverage of Packers vs. Raiders in Week 5

  • TV channel: ESPN2
  • Live stream: ESPN+

Instead of listening to the call by Joe Buck and Troy Aikman, you can also tune into the 'ManningCast' simulcast for the game. Peyton and Eli Manning give their live analysis of the game, and it's always a must-watch.

Guests usually join them. Will Ferrell, Ryan Fitzpatrick, and John McEnroe are among the stars who have joined the Mannings so far this season.

Peyton and Eli provide an entertaining breakdown of the game, while also giving their insight from years of NFL experience.

You can watch the simulcast on ESPN2 or via a live stream on ESPN+.

Packers vs. Raiders Week 5 injuries

  • Jaire Alexander and Aaron Jones are questionable for the Packers
  • Davante Adams is questionable for the Raiders

One of the biggest matchups this week is between Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams and Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander. However, both players are questionable for Week 5. It would be a real shame if we don't see these two stars and former teammates go head-to-head.

Despite returning from a hamstring injury last week, the Packers have listed running back Aaron Jones as questionable to play. The good news is that wide receiver Christian Watson, tight end Luke Musgrave, and offensive linemen Elgton Jenkins, Jon Runyan, and Zach Tom are good to go.

The Raiders are dealing with injuries at cornerback. They have already ruled out starter Nate Hobbs, and Jakorian Bennett and David Long are questionable.

Packers vs. Raiders matchup history

This will be just the 15th meeting between the Packers and Raiders. Green Bay leads the all-time series 9-5.

The Packers have won their previous eight games against the Raiders. They haven't lost to Monday's opponents since 1987, if you can believe that. Green Bay's last road defeat came against the Los Angeles Raiders in 1984.

The most famous matchup in this rivalry was their very first meeting: Super Bowl II. With head coach Vince Lombardi and quarterback Bart Starr, the Packers defeated the Raiders to retain their championship and win consecutive Super Bowls.
