Raiders’ defense no match for Aaron Rodgers

Getty Images

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers had one of his best games in recent years today against the Raiders, easily picking apart the Oakland secondary and leading Green Bay to a dominant 42-24 win.

Rodgers completed 25 of 31 passes for 429 yards, with five touchdowns and no interceptions, for a perfect 158.3 passer rating. He also ran for a touchdown. He was outstanding.

The Raiders really couldn’t do anything against him. Receivers were getting open all day, and Rodgers moved around in the pocket when he needed to buy himself time. It was a one-sided beatdown.

There were some bright spots for the Raiders. Rookie running back Josh Jacobs continues to run the ball well, and Darren Waller had an excellent game as a receiving threat.

But in this game when the Raiders thought they might have a chance to pull themselves into the AFC West race, they instead got blown out and fell to 3-3. Realistically, it’s hard to see them catching the Chiefs even with Patrick Mahomes injured.

The Packers improved to 6-1 and remain the class of the NFC North. Rodgers looks ready to lead the Packers on another playoff run.

  1. 6 TDs.

    Really hard to complain about that. Oh and #1 wr out. Imagine when they get Adam’s back and you know they’ll end up with one of the Sanders/Green/Sanu group.

  2. Going into Vegas as 8-8 team is cool with me. 90 million in cap space and two first round picks. Be ok

  3. 6-1 beaches!!! Cant wait to hear more about how the refs gave GB another win. Would anyone like some cheese with that whine?

  4. Pack fan here, Nice win, but wow the pack defense is not even close to being a really good defense. Until game was out of reach Oakland could do anything they wanted. Hope Pack can find ways to sure up some of these holes.

  5. We are the champions. Gophers, want to trade QBs. Lol. Rogers is a flat out mega star. 5 td throws, one running. He had a perfect rating until way into the second half. We are the champions.

  6. The score didn’t reflect the game the Raiders could have had 21 more points very easily,oh and if your team ever plays the Packers don’t expect the Packers to get any penalties!

  7. The refs were awful in this game! Its easy to light up any team’s secondary when your Oline is allowed to hold all game long, and your DBs are allowed to hold in the endzone leading to a crucial INT.

  8. Raiders need a pass rush.Carr made a crucial mistake that swung the pendulum in the packers favor for the remainder of the game..I like what the Raiders are building..bright young team that will make noise in the afc west.

  9. They did play well but they have to go on the road the next 4 of 5, so I am wont crown them yet while they seemed to look good they play in the toughest division, they might get what feels like extra home game vs. The chargers based on what was seen on SNF last week. But have a lot of road games left.

  10. even if the raiders scored on all 3 redzone stops, they still lose. the defense is a joke.

    how many years is this defense going to be this bad? why is gunther not on the hot seat? what has gunther ever really done? he took over a already good Cin defense, thats it.

  11. The Raiders could have had 21 more points if Carr didn’t fumble out of the endzone. Or if Carr didn’t throw a pick in the endzone. Or if the Raiders didn’t get stuffed on 4th and goal. I just realized I didn’t mention the refs in any of that. Hmmmmm

    Top of the North, more complete than any of the other division teams, and the best QB to ever play the game. Life is good!
    /////////////////
    Really? He wouldn’t last a quarter in the 70’s or 80’s

  13. I love it that I got hated on for saying the Packers would have a statement because they felt like they had something to prove after last week’s officiating controversy, and they did just that. And now the same Viking clowns are posting their usual garbage about the refs giving the Packers a W. They would still be whining like this if the Packers had won by 40.

  14. Packer fans need to react like fans from other teams:
    The Green Bay defense didn’t have a bunch of lapses; it was the fault of the refs who allowed the Raiders to constantly hold and commit offensive pass interference!!

  15. Got that *W*. Mission accomplished!👏

    Defense does miss Savage, but got the job done overall. Hopefully both Davante and Savage can pratice this week. Future looking bright!👍

    On to KC. One at a time.✊

    #GoPackGo!🏈

    Somebody tell the Packer rubes that they are eventually going to have to win a game away from Lamebeau.

    The Packers can only play the schedule the NFL gives them.

  17. Fackers have 4 of their next 5 games on the road against the likes of the Chiefs, Chargers, 9ers and Panthers.

    No more cushy home-cooking refs. Time for hostile crowds and long cross-country flight. Time for getting exposed. Time for losing.

    Chicago & Dallas say Hi…….Einstein

  19. Derek Carr is the kind of quarterback that Bill Walsh describes as someone who will play just well enough for you to lose. His attempt to score a TD by reaching for the pylon is a good example of a dumb mistake that will get you beat.

  20. Sit down stalker boy. You were exposed long ago.

    Game over for you.

    No more attention for you.👌

    Toodle loo👋

  21. Somebody tell the Packer rubes that they are eventually going to have to win a game away from Lamebeau.

    Like they did in Chicago and Dallas?

    I swear if the Packers won every game by 50 points, the trolls would be crying about the refs. How about the Packers coming off a Monday night game playing the Raiders coming out of a bye? Tell me how the NFL favored Green Bay with that.

    The team that’s undefeated on the road? Sounds good to me.

  23. I was watching the Vikings win so I didn’t see this game. Am I to understand the Packers gave up 24 points? And the Raiders fumbled at the 1, failed on a 4th down at the 1, and also threw a pick in the end zone? Packers 6-1 is great, until you realize that’s about to become an 8-5, 9-6, and maybe 10-6.

  24. Shows you how much 1 turnover can change a game.

    Raiders offense all things considered showed it can still march down the field on anyone right now, theyve gone against several really good defenses and put up good performances.

    Jacobs is looking like an all pro in the making once the Raiders have the ability to be alittle more dangerous on the outside. Over the middle we have a ton of playmakers at TE, 3 solid guys.

    Wish it went the other way but im still very optimistic about winning the AFC west.

  25. It’s about time the rest of the NFL sees how much favoritism the packers get from the refs and the NFL in general. Raiders fans now have 1st hand knowledge why the rest of the NFC North teams want nothing more than the packers to get absolutely obliterated each and every week. But it won’t be long until they once again become bottom feeders of the NFC and we can sit back and laugh at all the trailer court, cheese drooling packer fans drowning in their gourmet Pabst Blue Ribbon beer….silly little packers.

  26. All this talk about the refs in this game is laughable.
    This is the same teàm and fans who think that Burficts hit was just a routine football play.

    Since you didn’t see the game and don’t know what happened in it, why are you commenting about it? Shouldn’t you be concerned with how the vaunted Viking defense let Stafford throw for 364 yards and 4 touchdowns?

    Pack fan here, Nice win, but

    When they start with “Pack fan here…” That said, I agree, nice win BUT I cant believe how comfortable Aaron looks in this new offense and Im impressed that he’s throwing the ball with the same velocity and pinpoint accuracy that has made him one of the best quarterbacks ever.

  29. 6-1 thats okay, 1 game out. Its all good, come to the house of pain, where the refs call a clean game. As Packa fans have said it was the Giants Philly, blah freaking blah. Packas barely beat the Lions without the help of officating. What is Packas rationilzation now?

    Stats dont mean antyhthing its Wins, I’ll take that any week if the Vikes win. More Packas rationalizing their win over a lowly Raiders team.Your sqad is not even the best team in the NFC……LOL

  31. Aaron Rodgers throws for over 400 yards and 5 TD passes, runs for a 6th, has a perfect passer rating, and the Packers win by 18 points. Despite that, there still isn’t enough cheese in the whole state of Wisconsin to go with all of the whine in these comments.

  32. How many arrests at lambeau today? At last Monday’s win at Lambeau there were 9 and 1 packer fan threatening police officers. but there were no box cutters involved
    ===
    I remember a Viking fan throwing and hitting a referee in the head with a booze bottle. The Vikings wanted to sign him to play QB, but the police had already taken him out of the stadium.

  33. Dont let this loss diminish the fact that the Raiders are again the pre-season Paper Champions for the 35th year in row. Incredible.

  34. Passer-rating doesn’t mean anything when you have the refs in your back pocket and started your career in the softest era of professional football. The records don’t mean a thing anymore.

  35. No offensive line is allowed to hold more than the Packers

    I wonder where this team would be if the NFL wasn’t propping up this cute little story like they do

  36. A nice win for the Packers. Vikings had a nice win. Odd that the squadron of Vikings trolls is more active on this thread than their own.

    This has been true on this site since the jump.
    They are obsessed with the Packers and it is hilarious!
    And a little creepy.

    What’s really out there is the fact that they (the 42) think them annoying us makes the Vikings the Packers’ rival. They just can’t seem to grasp tradition and history.

    When the Brewers came to be, 7 short years after the Vikings came to be, they were in the AL East. Nobody I ever knew of, or ever even heard about, was insane enough to think we could possibly… ever… have even a tiny little piece of the Yankees/Red Sox rivalry. Nobody can… or ever will. It just doesn’t work that way.

  39. Story about a game between the Packers and the raiders so of course it’s full of crying Viking fans. Makes total sense. Most obsessed fanbase in sports. Too bad it’s not their team they’re obsessed with.

  40. Aaron Rodgers sucks compared to Kirk Cousins. But Teddy Bridgewater sucks more. Imagine Bridgewater only earning $7.2 million a year and winning everything in sight when he could have gotten a guaranteed $84 million from the Vikings if the Vikings had thought he was any good.

    Dear Teddy Bridgewater: Even though you are a better quarterback than Kirk Cousins, we love our VIKe That man at $84 million guaranteed. We Vikings fans want to pay $84 mllion instead of $7 million. We can do the math.
