WINNIPEG, Manitoba (AP) – Daniel Carson kicked a 33-yard field goal with 8 seconds remaining, and the Oakland Raiders earned a bizarre 22-21 preseason victory over the Green Bay Packers Thursday night on a field that was shortened to 80 yards over concerns about player safety.
Packers coach Matt LaFleur decided to sit 33 players, including star quarterback Aaron Rodgers and running back Aaron Jones. Rodgers hasn’t played in the preseason.
Oakland didn’t play starters including quarterback Derek Carr or receiver Antonio Brown.
The Raiders decided to move one of their two home exhibition games to Winnipeg in a move that saved them $500,000 in rent at the Oakland Coliseum. The team is planning to move to Las Vegas in 2020.

- Giants 25, Bengals 23 (Darlington native Alex Erickson had 3 catches for 15 yards, 1 rush for 6 yards, kick return for 16 yards)
