The last time these teams met, it meant something.

That's not (entirely) a knock on the preseason; it was the Lions' second win of a three-game winning streak that put them in the playoffs for the first time in over a decade. 

The stakes are considerably lower this time around, but considering that it's the third preseason game, there will be plenty of takeaways as the starters play close to a full, game-planned half of football.

As a primer, Lions fans, check out my preview of things to watch for in this game.

Raiders fans can check out some players to watch via AFC West Lead Writer Christopher Hansen's rundown of winners and losers from training camp. Maybe one of these guys turns it around in this game.
