Daniel Carlson gave the Oakland Raiders the lead on their first series of the game, but after that it became the Aaron Rodgers Show.
Rodgers went 25-for-31 for 429 yards passing with five touchdowns, as the Green Bay Packers defeated the Raiders 42-24 at Lambeau Field.
Carlson got the Raiders on the board, as he nailed a 42-yard field goal just 2:35 into the game; however, Rodgers took the Packers right down the field and connected with Aaron Jones for a 21-yard touchdown pass.
That would be all the scoring in the first quarter, and then Foster Moreau was on the receiving end of a 10-yard touchdown pass from Derek Carr to give the Raiders a 10-7 lead; however, Rodgers decided that it was enough for that lead for the visitors.
Rodgers and the Packers scored the next three touchdowns to take a commanding 28-10 lead before Carr found Darren Waller for a seven-yard touchdown pass.
Once again, the Packers and Rodgers scored the next two touchdowns to give them a 42-17 lead, as Rodgers found Jimmy Graham for a three-yard touchdown and the last touchdown of the game, as he located Marquez Valdes-Scantiling for a 74-yard touchdown pass.
Waller caught his second touchdown of the game with just 1:32 remaining in the game, as he ended the week where he signed a long-term contract in style, when he and Mike Glennon hooked up for 17-yard touchdown pass.
Despite the loss, it was a good day for Carr, who went 22-for-28 for 293 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.
Josh Jacobs continues to shine in his rookie year, as he carried the ball 21 times and gained 124 yards.
Waller was the leading wide receiver for the Raiders, as he caught seven passes for 126 yards and those two touchdowns.
Jones was the leading rusher for the Packers, as he carried the ball 12 for 50 yards, while Valdes-Scantlingwas the leading receiver, as he caught just two passes for 133 yards, that included that 74-yard touchdown pass.
