Form Las Vegas Raiders
The Las Vegas Raiders fell to back-to-back defeats last week when the Pittsburgh Steelers beat them 18-23. The hosts are now 3-3 in their past 10 games overall and 1-1 in the last five at home.
Things haven’t improved on the offense front for the Las Vegas Raiders at all, having put just 19.0 points on board across the last five matches. In all, the offense has averaged 15.0 points for the season. The defense, however, has lagged behind compared to most of the league’s defensive lines, allowing 25.7 points per game this year,.
The Las Vegas Raiders are considered outsiders to reach the playoffs this season. Their roster and challenges have led to skepticism. With low expectations, they face an uphill battle to secure a postseason berth and overcome the odds laid out for them this season.
Form Green Bay Packers
The Green Bay Packers made a swift return to losing ways last time out by slipping to a 20-34 defeat to the Detroit Lions, leaving them 4-3 from the past seven games overall and 2-1 in the last three on the road.
In terms of points added, it’s fair to say the Green Bay Packers have a strong and consistent offense.

They have allowed an average of 22.2 points in the last five games, which is similar to the 24.0 points they have allowed per game throughout the regular season.
Last season, the Green Bay Packers finished third in the NFC North with a record of 8-9. This season, they are aiming to improve. However, like every other NFL team, their main goal right now is to secure a spot in the playoffs during the regular season.
The previous matchup between these two franchises ended in a 42-24 win for the Green Bay Packers at the Lambeau Field in October 2019. This might well be one road trip the Green Bay Packers are looking forward to, as the past eight rounds of this series make good reading for the visitors.
