Greetings, Raider Nation! Welcome to Week 3 of the preseason, wherein the Raiders will take on A. A. Ron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Both teams arrived to Canada yesterday, and the Packers’ star QB showed up wearing a Canadian tuxedo and looking straight out of the Beastie Boys’ Sabotage video.

Meanwhile, Raiders punter AJ Cole wore a shirt indicating he has a tenuous grasp of geography.

We probably won’t see many, if any, starters tonight, which is unusual for the third preseason game, but the field conditions may be an issue and it’s better to be safe than sorry. We should get a hefty dose of the Raiders fighting for roster spots, which is good because there are so many spots on this Raiders team which are heavily contested by a number of quality players.
