With an 80-yard field, Raiders outlast the Packers 22-21

Tim Boyle started 2 of 9 passing, but he hit 14 of his next 16 passes with two TDs.

Technically, there was a preseason football game at Investors Group Field. For the record, the Raiders won 22-21. Field conditions forced the Packers and Raiders to improvise. Investors Group Field is home to the Winnipeg Blue Bombers of the Canadian Football League, and the field dimensions are different in the CFL.

Both of the goalposts had to be moved, and when they were, the holes left behind - which would've been in the middle of end zone- were not patched up to NFL standards. Officials decided to move the goals line up to the ten yard line, creating an 80-yard field. The Packers decided not play any of their starters. The Raiders never intended to play their first-team unit.

The first five possessions included three punts from the Green Bay and two from Oakland.

In the second quarter, Packers back-up quarterback Tim Boyle hit Trevor Davis with a 23-yard touchdown pass for the Pack's first points. Boyle finished 16 of 25 passing for 191 yards and two touchdowns. Davis caught four passes for 66 yards.

Former UW-Whitewater star Jake Kumerow hauled in a 26-yard TD from Boyle to put the Packers up 14-10. Kumerow has seven catches for 99 yards and a touchdown this preseason.

Fellow back-up DeShone Kizer was four of five passing for 24 yards.

Packers receiver Equanimeous St. Brown was carted to the locker room with what appeared to be a left leg injury. Linebacker Rashan Gary also took the cart to the locker room. Both injuries occurred in the first half.
