The Green Bay Packers went to 13-0 with an easy win over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday
When Carson Palmer became the Oakland Raiders' starting quarterback, he looked like he was worth everything that the Raiders gave up for him and more. In the last two weeks, he's looked like a shell of that player, gifting victories to the Miami Dolphins, then the Green Bay Packers with turnovers. He threw four interceptions while Green Bay capitalized on the turnovers, winning by a final score of 46-16.
Rodgers didn't have his best game of the season, but he didn't have to. His touchdown pass to Jordy Nelson in the second quarter came on a spectacular throw, while Ryan Grant's touchdown run on the Packers' first drive was arguably the highlight of the afternoon. Grant was superb in the absence of James Starks, rushing for 85 yards and two touchdowns on just 10 rushes.
The Raiders turned the ball over five times and at one point were down 34-0. Rodgers was removed from the game in the third quarter, with the win comfortably in hand for the Green and Gold.
