The Oakland Raiders have a massive test ahead of them in Week 7. After an impressive win in Week 5 against Chicago, the Raiders will face Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau Field.
As you would expect, the Raiders are underdogs in this contest despite coming off a bye week. But could they set up another NFC North opponent on the road? Barry Werner of the Touchdown Wire believes it is possible. Take a look at why he thinks the Raiders are in a prime spot to get their fourth win of the season:
Green Bay is another team battling injuries as its wide receiver corps is decimated. The Pack is coming off a short week after having to scramble to beat the Lions at Lambeau. Oakland is coming off a bye, having downed Chicago in thrilling fashion in London. Expect this to be way closer than anyone anticipates.
If Oakland were able to beat the Packers in Green Bay, they would try to be much more than just an early-season surprise. The Raiders have a big game ahead of them in Week 7 that could dramatically change the outlook of their season.
