It's a drizzly cold day in Oakland. Which is like a tank top and shorts day for Green Bay, but not for California. This is about as close to a frozen tundra as you will find in these parts. It's a good day for football.
The Raiders are coming off a big win against the Broncos last week. It kept the Raiders playoff hopes alive, but without a win today, those hopes would officially die.
To get a win, the Raiders must stop a revitalized Packers running attack and Aaron Rodgers making his homecoming to the Bay Area. No small task. They must also get Amari Cooper going after he went without a catch on eight targets last week and get a solid performance from Latavius Murray.
They will be trying to do this with a new right side of the line that has rookie Jon Feliciano making his first start at right guard and former right guard J'Marcus Webb moving outside to start at right tackle in place of the injured Austin Howard.
