Green Bay and Las Vegas square up tonight on Monday Night Football. The Packers hope to win their third game of the season, while the Raiders want to end their three-game losing streak.
Packers Game Plan
A ball thrown by Jordan Love has a coin flip of being caught by a Packer. His current completion percentage on the season is 56.1%. Love needs to improve those chances if the Packers want to see success. When he plays well, he passes for at least 200 yards and limits the number of interceptions to no more than one.
Head Coach Matt LaFleur discussed the importance of practice when it came to Love’s success:
Wide Receiver Romeo Doubs has been a great target for Love. In three out of his four games, he averaged more than 10 yards per reception. In both wins, he had at least one receiving touchdown.
Running Back AJ Dillon can also help the team succeed tonight. He has more than 100 rushing yards this season in 44 carries. He needs to start scoring touchdowns if he wants to match last season. If he can have a great game, the Packers might walk away with the win.
Raiders Game Plan
Jimmy Garoppolo is coming back after missing the game against the Chargers. While Garoppolo averages about seven yards per pass attempt, he needs to cut down on the amount of interceptions. To put it into perspective, he’s thrown more interceptions (6) than touchdowns (5). If the Raiders want to win, Jimmy G needs to keep the ball in the Raiders’ hands
Jakobi Meyers will have some help with Davante Adams coming back, but he needs to have a good game. In his three games this season, he’s averaged 11.1 yards per reception. He also had two touchdowns in the Raiders’ win against the Broncos.
Head Coach Josh McDaniels spoke about the team’s preparation for the Packer’s edge rushers:
Davante Adams will get a chance at revenge for the first time since he left Green Bay. According to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, Adams is back after a shoulder injury.
The Packers’ De’Vondre Campbell is out with an ankle injury, according to Tom Silverstein of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel.
Aaron Jones is also out with a hamstring injury, according to Tom Pelissero.
The #Packers are signing RB Patrick Taylor from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
So with Aaron Jones (hamstring) expected to be out tonight against the #Raiders, Green Bay will have three RBs available: AJ Dillon, Emanuel Wilson and Taylor, who was out of elevations.
