  • Raiders edge Packers on 80-yard field in Winnipeg

For Thursday night, end zones were marked by bright orange pylons at the field's 10-yard lines and there were no kickoffs, the Associated Press reported.

If you're someone who thinks it's time for radical change to the NFL's preseason, Thursday night's debacle between the Green Bay Packers and Oakland Raiders is a big feather in your cap. He also had a few solid returns on special teams.

"Concerns arose today surrounding the area where the (Winnipeg) Blue Bombers' goal posts were previously located". The Packers did not dress 33 players, including Aaron Rodgers. The quality of these games shows that players would benefit from more film study, controlled padded practices, in-squad scrimmages, and joint practices (despite the constant fights and Aaron Rodgers disdain). The Raiders also held out most of their starters, including quarterback Derek Carr and marquee receiver Antonio Brown, for the Week 3 pre-season contest. There, the Vet's infamous artificial turf (which had just been redone for their co-tenants, the Phillies) was in such a patchy and uneven state that both teams refused to take the field, and the game was outright canceled.

Even though Jones is 25 for 30 for 369 yards and two touchdowns for a whopping 140.1 rating, fourth in the National Football League through three preseason games, Shurmur reiterated: "Eli's our starter, and we're getting Daniel ready to play".

Packers quarterback Tim Boyle said he checked out a turf-covered spot during warmup. "And it ended up being a little more, but it just is what it is", he said.

That came one year after he was out for the season with a shoulder injury. A press conference will take place on Sunday to make it official.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden said earlier this week that Brown is "all in and ready to go". You know it was a debacle, really, and unfortunately I think a lot of this is going to reflect on Winnipeg. "We thought the field was perfectly fine", Gruden told reporters in his post-game media conference.

St. Brown is part of an improved wide receiver corps in Green Bay, which consists of star Davante Adams as well as Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Geronimo Allison, Jake Kumerow, Trevor Davis, Allen Lazard and undrafted rookie Darrius Shepherd, among others.

Playing in Winnipeg, the Raiders beat the Packers, 22-21. The team is planning to move to Las Vegas in 2020.

It was the first National Football League game in Canada since the Buffalo Bills faced the Atlanta Falcons in December 2013 to finish a run of eight games in Toronto.

Green Bay led 21-10 at halftime, which featured Winnipeg band Attica Riots. A two-point pass attempt was intercepted by Packers linebacker Brady Sheldon. Peterman finished 23 of 37 for 210 yards.
