WINNIPEG - The Raiders used 12 unanswered points in the second half to top the Packers 22-21 in Canada. The Packers, led by QB Tim Boyle in the first half, led 21-10 going into the break, but QB DeShone Kizer couldn't get anything going as Nathan Peterman led the Raiders to the come from behind victory.

The game was almost called due to rough field conditions, before they adjusted the endzones 10 yards shorter. As a result of the bad field conditions, Head Coach Matt LaFleur decided to rest the majority of his starters (including Aaron Rodgers), yet multiple Packers still went down in the game with injuries - and the turf was definitely a factor.


The Packers will round out the preseason next Thursday against the Chiefs from Lambeau Field at 7pm. Aaron Rodgers is not expected to play.
