The Packers continue their quest for a perfect season when they bring their 18-game win streak back home to face the banged-up Raiders.

The Raiders’ three-game win streak came to a screeching halt in last week’s 34-14 loss in Miami, as they failed to gain 75 rushing yards for the second straight week. Meanwhile, Green Bay escaped with a wild 38-35 victory in New York, the Pack’s 18th straight win, but second ATS loss in the past three contests. Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers continues what is arguably the best QB season in the history of the game (37 TD, 5 INT) while Carson Palmer is floundering with his best two wideouts (Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore) on the shelf. Both players could return this week however, and Palmer could certainly exploit a terrible Green Bay pass defense (293 YPG, 31st in NFL). And with CB Charles Woodson suffering a concussion last week, the Packers could struggle with losing their leader and best playmaker. The Raiders won’t be able to win outright in Lambeau, but they are 5-1 ATS on the road (4-2 SU) this year and have the ability to beat good teams if their running game is clicking.

Palmer and the Raiders generated little offense in Miami, punting eight times and throwing an interception in the first nine possessions of a game that was a 34-0 score at one point. But a lot of the struggles were due to the Dolphins sound defense. Green Bay has some talent led by LB Clay Matthews, but this team has allowed 26+ points in four of its past six games. The key to Oakland’s success will be RB Michael Bush who had a pitiful 18 yards on 10 carries last week. In addition to Woodson, Green Bay could be without two great linebackers in Desmond Bishop and A.J. Hawk, both nursing calf injuries.

Green Bay’s passing game needs little tinkering, but the Packers rank 29th in the NFL in rushing yards. They have failed to reach 100 yards in any of the past four contests, gaining just 323 yards (81 YPG) on 3.2 YPC. But considering Oakland has surrendered 141 rushing YPG this year (28th in league), Green Bay could try to run the ball more than usual to control the clock. Oakland will likely not have the services of DE Richard Seymour who was ejected for throwing a punch in the loss to Miami.
