Week 5 of the 2023 NFL season comes to a close Monday with the Las Vegas Raiders playing host to the Green Bay Packers, and we’ve got you covered with all the action!
The Raiders (1-3) lost to Los Angeles Chargers in Week 4, while the Packers (2-2) were defeated by the Detroit Lions. Both teams are aiming to bounce back Monday.
Raiders QB Jimmy Garoppolo was in concussion protocol after missing Week 4’s tilt, but it appears that he’ll be under certain again in prime time. On the other side, the Packers will be without offensive tackle David Bakhtiari, whose season is over as he prepares for his fifth knee surgery.
Here are the top moments!
Green Bay Packers at Las Vegas Raiders
Moving the chains
The Packers had a clear mission to establish the run, and Jordan Love got in on that action on this play action call. The 26-yard scamper helped the Packers take a 3-0 advantage in the first quarter.
Raiders take the lead!
The Raiders gambled and won on a fourth down play in the second quarter, and it paid huge dividends for the squad as they were able to parlay it into the game’s first TD.
The Raiders put a lot of trust into Robert Spillane, for good reason. He kept momentum on Vegas’ side by picking off Jordan Love’s first pass attempt after LV’s score.
The Packers defense hung tough to hold the Raiders to three after the pick.
Beast mode’s in the building!
Talk about talent. Marshawn Lynch and Josh Jacobs were seen speaking as Jacobs got ready for the matchup.
Brothers in arms
Daniel and Anders Carlson shared a moment before the game, as the two prepared to become the first pair of brothers to kick in the same game since 1987.
Davante Adams said he treats all games the same, but one has to believe he’ll have a little extra juice for his former team. His pregame outfit was certainly dripping.
